Must Love Claire!!!

What a day!! The Claire Cook luncheon was a huge success! Life's a Beach was celebrated in style as you can see by the photos below. Everyone enjoyed hearing Claire tell her story-very inspiring! We also got a peek at her next novel which is due out in June '08! Another treat from Claire!! And with the title and beach theme of the afternoon- how perfect!! Record breaking day -I think it hit 90!! (with cold air blasting in the Atrium!)
There were 80 of us all there to help raise money for the ACS Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk. I'm still figuring out the finances but right now online we have recorded over $10,400!! (and we still have 2 1/2 weeks to go!)
If you'd like to make a donation - and click on the wwr logo-
