MS Milestones Gala

Last week I had the opportunity to attend the annual MS Milestones Gala in Boston. I've been once before and was excited to attend again. My friend Doug (pictured below with his wife Gretchen) had a table through his employer and need some seat fillers. Katelyn and I were happy to do the job! It isn't very often that I get to go to a fancy event for free!

My date! Not sure why the flash wasn't on for our photo but it was for Gretchen and Doug's? I wish it had been b/c theirs came out so much better!

There was a cocktail hour with silent auction before the dinner. We got a good laugh at this sports package with an autographed football by Tom Brady!

The dinner included a program with Dr. Philip DeJager from Brigham and Women's MS Center being honored for his work and research in MS.

After the gala we stopped at the hotel bar for one more drink and I got to catch up with my friend Stacy from Fashion Plates who also is in charge of the Gala! She did a great job of course.

It was a fun night out and I even ran into some old friends (I use to babysit their kids). I hadn't seen them in over ten years probably!

Happy Friday! I hope everyone has a great weekend. I'm hoping to finally kick my cold to the curb!
