This is my third year live blogging from our fashion event, and each year I have paused, just before the party starts, to give thanks.
This year I want to get straight to the point—to naming names, as it were.
CCAD is honored and grateful to have such wonderful partners. Each year we go out and ask organizations and individuals to support this event and help us raise money for scholarships. Each year we are humbled by the response.
