FROM ANONYMOUS: It WAS an amazing event. Every time I watch that video, I say I'm not going to cry but yet I tear up. That you Lisa and everyone that made this possible
FROM LORI CHOPIN: A HUGE Thank You to the "You Night 2013" event coordinators, Lisa, Celeste, Nancy, Lorna, and Susan. We couldn't have done it without ALL of you. What a team you are! The event far passed my expectations; a phenomenal job was done by all. The night was truly a life altering event, much like the cancer diagnosis. To my fellow 2013 You Night Event survivors, we've come a long way, baby. I will cherish each of you and the bond we have developed as friends, women and as survivors. Thank you to all the sponsors for your generosity. Without your involvement, this event would not have been a huge success! I have heard so much positive feedback from everyone I speak with. A special thank you to my boutique and hair/make-up sponsors, Kim at Columbia Street Merchantile took lots of time with me selecting the most fabulous outfit. Mandie and Corie of Downtown Chic Salon worked their majic by providing a stunning hair sytle and gorgeous make-up. All involved made me feel very special. Kudos to everyone involved in making the YOU NIGHT 2013 Event such a fun-filled, FABULOUS night to remember!! Much love to all, Lori Chopin
FROM GUEST: As a father of one of the models, Laura Marr, I must say this was one of the most emotional events I've ever attended. It was an honor to be a part of it. The minute the first model walked on stage, I felt I had an emotional connection to that person and everyone thereafter. I felt like I was looking through a water fall due to the continual joyful and proud tears. The professionalism involved in this spectacular night far exceeded every expectation of mine. And to think that all this was put together in a short 4 months time, unfathomable.
Kudos to everyone involved.
FROM LACEY PIGLIA, LACEY STEVENS SALON I first wanted to say THANK YOU for letting myself and my salon be apart of something so wonderful & beautiful. I absolutely loved our models from the time they came into the salon & I think i loved them more after last night! I think I cried the entire fashion show! I was touched by every single moment of last night. You did an AMAZING job with EVERYTHING. Please keep me in mind for next year! I'd love to help with anything for the next event! (Lacey Piglia)
