2006 JDRF Promise Ball

We attended the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation Promise Ball fundraiser last night held at the Westin Kierland Resort & Spa in Scottsdale.

There were many silent & live auction items, including this table that David & I were eyeing but resisted buying because we had nowhere to put it!

However, David and I chatted with the artist Andrew & his lovely wife, Bobbi.
We also ran into Susan & Bill Heywood. Susan was the executive director of the Scratch & Sniff Foundation in Phoenix.
We also ran into Linda Herald & her friend, Stacie.
Here is the high point of the evening for both of us but REALLY BIG for David.

Do you recognize anyone in this photo? It was taken in London at a party for Bruce back in 1977.

From left to right: David, Barry Manilow & Bruce Johnston (of the Beach Boys)

Bruce wrote Barry's #1 hit "I Write the Songs".

Well, here is David & Bruce looking at the old photo! A group shot.
A concert shot with Mike Love to the left and Bruce Johnston to the right.
As charity events go, I have to tell you that we left around 10:15 pm (late for these kind of events) and a lot of people were still on the dance floor "rushing" the stage. It was a great concert and a nice venue to in which you could get that close to the band.
