Saturday night Rob and I had the opportunity to attend the PSCH Gala through his work. It was black-tie optional, which means Rob could wear his suit, but I totally needed something new. So last weekend Rob took my shopping for and evening gown. Saturday night we got dressed up. The Gala was at Chelsea Piers and the room was all glass / windowed walls with views of the Hudson. During cocktail hour was a silent auction. We bid on some things but did not win, and that is probably ok. Dinner and dancing followed. Dinner was pretty good, desert was excellent. They were a little to liberal with the wine. I would take a sip they would fill it up. Really people, I only wanted a half glass to start with! We had a blast. I hope we get more opportunities in the future. We like getting dressed up in fancy clothes and finding new ways for philanthropy.
PSCH (Promoting Specialized Care and Health) has been providing services in New York City for 30 years. From their website "Since 1980 PSCH has been meeting the growing challenges of developmental disabilities, mental illness and co-occurring substance abuse behaviors. Our multidisciplinary approach and centralized referral process help to insure that each person who comes under our care receives the appropriate range of services and level of care, with an individual treatment plan coordinated by highly competent and caring case management professionals." We were glad to buy raffle tickets to support this organization.
