It all started (for me) with a fb post by a colleague of mine, James Dixon. He needed help organizing Red Dress Party this year. I saw his post, and having been to Red Dress for the last 4 years and had a good time, I decided to jump on board and help. I had no idea what amazing group of friends I would meet, how many new friends I would make, and how insane the next (almost) 3 months would be, particularly those last two weeks of building, painting, cleaning and phone calls, emails and texts. And more texts. And then a few more phone calls…..
Flash forward to April 15th, 21012, the lights went up, the music came on, and we had a party. A big sea of red, happy people dancing and laughing for over 6 hours. Was it worth it? Every second (there were a lot of seconds) of it was worth it. Will I be back next year? You couldn’t stop me if you tried. A BIG thanks to everyone who volunteered this year, all were amazing!
So.. now what do I do with all this “Spare time?”
