company and a church that does just that. Through my office we prepared holiday meals for 25 needy families and purchased a few Christmas gifts, including a Disney Princess bike, for kids who may not have gotten what they wanted from Santa otherwise. I also had the opportunity to head to The Meritage Resort and Spa in Napa to help the management team as they prepared an elaborate dinner for the rest of the staff, served at at huge masquerade ball. Not only was it fun, it was amazing to see what goes in to preparing and hosting a three-course banquet for 350 guests. In response to the tragedy in Connecticut I also got calls from Sacramento area media to arrange interviews with Bayside's pastors, Bayside is not a client of mine, but I was happy to help everyone that called me. As part of Bayside's Christmas Services, they donated all proceeds from ticket sales to CovKidsCongo, helping kids in the Congo get the medical treatments and bed/mosquito nets they need to just survive to the age of five. It was also a great show and reminder of the reason for the season with music by Lincoln Brewster (all proceeds from his current CD "Joy to the World" go to help CovKidsCongo too), a spectacular performance by THE SILHOUETTES and Le PeTiT CiRqUe, and message by both Ray Johnston and Curt Harlow that ended with my favorite part of the service, the candle-lighting.
