You all may remember my writing about Hollywood getting their first glimpse of me because every member of Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science was sent the Academy Report featuring a photo of me taken by Joseph Allen at last year’s Oscar Night DC. Well, it’s Oscar Season and many of you are probably rushing to movie theatres to make sure you see all the movies up for awards.
I know that the economic crisis is forcing a lot of folks to decide between various charity events rather than attend them all. I get a lot of requests to help nonprofits by serving on host committees and such, but I pick and choose carefully as I don’t want to overcommit myself. I have truly enjoyed working with my friend Pamela Sorensen on this event for the past two years. I truly believe in the cause, and I feel like the host committee has really created a fun and unique event.
For those who don’t know the American Red Cross of the National Capital Area helps people in the community prevent, prepare for, and respond to emergencies that may be local, state-level, national, or international in nature. Not only do they help families who have lost a home in a fire, but they welcome our injured troops home when they arrive at Andrews Airforce Base on their way to Walter Reed. Many may not know that they are mandated by Congress to provide food, water, shelter to our community in case of a terrorist attack or natural disaster but are NOT funded.
