Yours truly gets to hob nob with local TV meteorologist It-Guy (and oh-so cutie) Sven Sundgaard in the rooftop garden set for the KARE-11 news 5 p.m. broadcast today (Friday).
It’s not a pointless garden party — I’m there on a mission! I and a few colleagues from the American Liver Foundation get a brief moment to promote our local chapter’s Liver Life Walk Twin Cities, which takes place on September 6, 2008, at Rosland Park in Edina.
We’re working hard to get our numbers up this year for the walk, which for the past several years has done so much to help raise funds and awareness in the ALF’s fight against liver disease and its impact on families.
YOU CAN HELP! Consider walking with me on Team “Chopped Liver,” (just an easy two 1.1-mile laps around a pretty lake in one of our lovely urban parks on a sunny Sunday morning). Or, you can sponsor my team with a financial gift, no matter how small. The money we raise goes far to prevent liver disease (which impacts one in ten Americans today) and to cure and comfort the people who are affected by it.
No obligation here. So many of my regular readers have already shown up with support of the Greatest Gift Foundation, our annual Jingle Jangle, financially or otherwise — and it’s so appreciated!
