How about a charity fund raiser that went up in smoke?

Well, that WAS the idea behind W Curtis Draper's "13th Annual Little Puff" an intimate gathering of cigar lovers (limited to 300 people). Proceeds from ticket sales and the auction benefit three local academic scholarships (The Erik Kristensen Memorial Scholarship in honor of a Navy SEAL killed in action; The Pat Krimm Scholarship & The Anne Berman Memorial Scholarship). As well as money for Breast Cancer programs at Sibly Hospital.

In the pink!

It is a pink shirt tailor made for my body for the Newsbabes Bash for Breast Cancer 2012 thanks to measurements taken by a super high tech 3-D Body Scanner at Alton Lane Dupont Circle. It is much more private than the airport systems but it is also much more accurate and no X-rays as 32 sensors and receivers flash, recording thousands of data points. Then the computer generates your 3-D avatar which is sent on to the tailors who use the information to create a perfect fit. Alton Lane, 1506 St. NW, third floor. And it was all for charity!
