Co-Auctioneer for Cystic Fibrosis "65 Roses Gala" 09

Mr. Hugh Farr once again gave me the priviledge of putting my grain of sand to help the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation by asking me to Co-Auctioneer at the "65 Roses Gala," held at the Riverwalk Westin Hotel in San Antonio. It was an uber elegant evening with attendees from all walks of San Antonio life, including my friends, Mayor Castro and his brother, Councilman Joaquin Castro. I had so much fun Co-Auctioneering (see video below). Dr. Maust was so generous to share the podium with me. I got a chance to practice my French and Italian as some of the items were French and Italian wines! I believe we raised a respectable amount in spite of this very difficult economy. Here are some images and you can find a beautiful slide on:
As always, I feel very blessed to be given opporutinites like this to help others. Here I am w/Jolissa (Top Knotch Productions), Hugh Farr (Dir.Lonestar CFF Chapter) and Steven (Top Knotch Productions). I am, of course, wearing one of my brother's, Nick Verreos (NIKOLAKI) designs.

Rita. You did a great job. Small correction though... isn't Joaquin a State Representative?
