A few weeks ago I covered an event put on by A Reason to Party, a volunteer-based organization that throws parties for a good cause. This last party was to help the Verge Center for the Arts, a non-profit geared to help the contemporary arts in Sacramento. As a dancer, I'm grateful for A Reason to Party and their part in helping the arts in Sacramento.
Held at the beautiful Elk's Tower in downtown Sacramento, it was a night of live music, beautiful dancing, and amazing food. Bottom line: Sacramento artists know how to party.
|Tom and I. Yes, this is The Tom who always takes those amazing photos of me |
(he has magic skills).
Ps.. you know a party's legit when you get a photo like this. Bam!

|All VIP guests (that's me!) hung out in the Penthouse Lounge. I have to say, once you go VIP, you can never go back.|
|Dancers from CORE graced the audience with hours and hours of improv. |
They were all so beautiful!
|Some of the amazing food. On the right: Cheesy meatballs. I know what you're thinking: |
Yes, it took all my strength not to eat the entire pot.

|I was all up in DJ Anthony's grill. He was totally cool with it. I like people like that.|

I highly recommend downloading their songs off of iTunes. Great music!
Thank you, A Reason to Party, for throwing a bomb event. I can't wait for the next one!
Do you have charity events like this in your community?
I'd love to hear all about it!
