Borough Hopping

What an eventful day! It all started in Brooklyn at the Miss Brooklyn Organization's Flapjack Fundraiser. I went to Applebee's in the Atlantic Terminal Market to enjoy some pancakes and bacon (YUM!) while supporting the Miss Brooklyn Scholarship Organization. Besides Mallory Hagan (Miss Brooklyn 2010) and Joelle Bracco (Miss Brooklyn's Outstanding Teen 2010), joining me at the event included Claire Buffie (Miss New York 2010), Alison Stroming (Miss New York's Outstanding Teen 2010), and Hannah Wright (Miss Metropolitan 2010).

After the fundraiser, Claire, Hannah, and I headed into Manhattan to participate in the American Cancer Society's LGBT Relay for Life. Now, I have been involved with Relay for Life events for a number of years. However, this was the first Relay for Life dedicated to the LGBT community. The event took place inside the World Financial Center Atrium. We were surprised that the event was indoors instead of outdoors; usually Relay for Life takes place outside. Nevertheless, we had a great time and met some amazing people.
