You can't take it with you but you can send it on ahead. Being a giver makes you live longer. And healthier.
On March 9, nearly 1,000 business and civic leaders attended their annual Galaxy Gala and Big Bang in support of the facility inspired by the new Museum's 500,000-gallon aquarium. It gladdened my heart to see so many familiar faces still beam spontaneous smiles and healthy countenances.
Let me count the bonhomie givers whose smiling faces seem to nod in my direction: perennials Dan and Trish Bell, Museum CEO Gillian Thomas, the Frosts and the Bachelors, Nancy and John; Nicole and Edgar Lozano, (co-chairs of the Gala), Paul and Swanee DiMare, Ramona and Aldo Busot, Taffy Gould, Brenda Nestor Castellano and Terry Buoniconti, Peter and Electra Spillis. I knew them well, wish them well and salute their generosity.
