Later in the evening HGTV hosted a party at South Boston's Artists for Humanity.

Artists for Humanity (EpiCenter) is LEED certified and one of Boston's greenest buildings.
The event was produced by Michael Yavorsky of MY Experience.
We printed photographs from the afternoon as favors for guests.
Artists from the program at EpiCenter were set up at the party.

Great job, Enz!
Mikey had fun on Boylston...
Braden being a gentleman.

Ad Club Women's Leadership Forum - Mandarin Oriental
Last year the Ad Club hosted three separate Women's Leadership luncheons designed to empower women. This year it all happened in one day (motivation on steroids) and was held at one of my favorite location, the Mandarin Oriental Boston!
It wouldn't be the Ad Club without a raffle!
Guess who brought this??
WNBA legend Nancy Lieberman gave an absolutely terrific lecture!
A book was given out called, "The Best Advice I Ever Got" containing quotes from Ad Club leaders and members.
Ellyn Spragins, author of "What I Know Now About Success".
Suffolk County Sheriff Andrea Cabral spoke as well.
Shaunti Feldhahn, author of "The Male Factor".
My friend and President of the Ad Club, Kathy Kiely.
An Exhale Spa representative was on site to relax participants mid-way through the forum with some light yoga.
Susan Retik, 9/11 widow and founder of Beyond the 11th, a non-profit to empower Afghan women.
Jean Junior, rhodes scholar.
Visit the Ad Club Women's Leadership website to read about all of the women who spoke.

Celtics host Make-A-Wish for fun-filled afternoon
Five kids from across the country visited the Boston Celtics at practice in Waltham last week. They were chaffered to the gym by limousine and got to tour the facilities, meet the coach, talk with the trainer, play some ball and meet their favorite players! As if that wasn't enough, they also got autographs, souvenirs and pictures with the championship trophy! It was the perfect ending to a Celtics extravaganza made possible by the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Massachusetts. These were some happy fans!

Recognize his ring? They got to try that on, too!
Celtics head coach Doc Rivers invited the kids into his office for the grand tour.
Shooting around with real game balls.
Love this picture!
Brian Scalabrine stopped in for a quick game!
Don't think he let the kids win either...
You guys look alike!

Special thanks to Matt Meyersohn at the Boston Celtics for all of the hospitality.
Almost as tall as Tony Allen!
Paul Pierce stopped by.
Everyone loved his tattoo!
Probably not your size!
The trophy was wheeled out in a covered bag - nobody could guess what it was!
Kevin Garnett had to slouch for the family photo - he is 6"11!
This one's a keeper.
The kids at the end of the day.
It was a pleasure to watch these kids have such a great time meeting their idols.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation does an amazing job - please visit wish.org to find out how you can help!
