The Magic WAS Real!

For this past weekend’s Hope for Annabel event, The Magic WAS Real and we raised over $800,000 for Annabel which will help her fight her battle against Alternating Hemiplegia of Childhood (AHC) and find a treatment to cure this rare and severe neurological disease!

I opted for this beautiful Chiara Boni La Petite Robe gown in a gorgeous Barolo wine color – the perfect fall evening gown color and surprisingly coordinated perfectly with the backdrop.  :o)

Paired the gown with these beautiful Dolce & Gabana earrings from Net-a-Porter, Manolo Blahniks and Saint Laurent clutch.

It’s always refreshing to break away from pairing everything with the traditional black – go for something new and fresh like a nude or monochromatic to mix up your looks and get more wear out of your gowns!  :o)

The Magic is Real

I’m thrilled and honored to be apart of this committee to support my dear friends Simon and Nina Frost in their journey to help end their sweet Annabel’s battle with Alternating Hemiplegia of Childhood (AHC), a severe and rare neurological disease.

Through the past few years of sleepless nights spent tending to Annabel’s terrible symptoms (seizures, paralysis, choking in her sleep, to name a few) while simultaneously conducting research behind the screen and traveling overseas, Simon found the doctors and the actual treatment, via gene therapy, which is necessary to cure her AHC but they need close to $3million in order to create the cure!

This treatment will not only cure Annabel but also help rewrite the future for thousands of other children whose lives could be transformed by gene therapy.

So please join us at this one-time gala, The Magic is Real, to help FUND THE CURE!
