Benefit for Parkinson's Disease

Tonite, Jas and I headed over to The Press Box for a charity event in support of Parkinson's, both of our dads have this disease so this hits close to home. All the proceeds for the dinner goes to Parkinson's Society of BC. For $20, you get a burger platter with fries and a beer or wine. Jas and I were long over due for a get together so this event was the perfect opportunity to catch up and support a great cause! I wasn't expecting much from the burger but ohmygosh, pub food is super good! The burger is one of the best I've had! The place was packed with friends and family of the organizers and they had a silent auction and a 50/50 draw. It was nice to see Shauna too since I hadn't seen her in ages! Her mom was part of organizing and holding this event for her friend who has been diagnosed with this disease. The quick word and power of FaceBook , Shauna sent this invite to all of her friends and it def brought in a huge crowd of people! After dinner, we went over to her place to catch the Rihanna interview with Diane Sawyer. It was an interesting interview and it's awful what happened to her but at least she is bringing awareness to young women that this is not ok. It was a great nite of catching up!
