Gearing up for yet another VDay event, actually a weekend of events, kept me very busy for a couple of weeks. It started off with a unique Concert-Drama “Talking to Schubert” at 4th Universalist Society's Gothic Church on Central Park West, a perfect setting for such a piece. Husband-wife team Emir Gamsizoglu and Ege Maltepe put together a really interesting multi-media play-classical music concert as the kick-off fundraiser for our VDay celebrations.

My official duty was Volunteer Coordinator. I’m getting good at it. And, if I may share, I have had a number of People tell me they’d work anywhere with me in my various volunteer assignments since arriving in NYC. Now if I could transfer this into a job!? I digress. I also felt like a Girl Scout Leader again as I made 100 bracelets to sell in our VCafe/Shop.
We had beautiful art displayed throughout the Sacristy. A Silent Auction very successfully raised quite a bit of funds for our cause. All this as the backdrop of the main event, four presentations of Eve Ensler plays, “The Vagina Monologues” and “The Good Body.” It was beautiful, moving, and wonderful.
I constantly thank my lucky stars for the wonderful People I am privileged to meet, work, and play with in my new hometown, NYC.
