Just last week my sister commented that fall is the new summer. Seems like there are a ton of events happening in October. My guess is that everyone loves the prefect weather.
Here are a few A-List items to keep an eye on this month.
Yoga for a Cure
This weekend take part in an enriching yoga class while helping out a worthy cause. Sunday, join the Yoga Sanctuary for Yoga for a Cure, a benefit for the Southern Nevada chapter of Komen for a Cure. The class is open to yoga students of all levels. KLAS-TV Channel 8 news anchor Paula Francis will also be there introducing Jackie Brown, executive director of the local Komen for a Cure. Francis, a Yoga Sanctuary regular, promotes breast cancer awareness through her Buddy Check 8 Program.
Eyes on Halloween
My guess is that two of this year’s most popular Halloween costumes will be zombie Michael Jackson from the Thriller video and Twilight heartthrob Edward Cullen. What will make these costumes complete? It’s all about the eyes.
Wells Fargo Grant a Wish
August and September A List Media was busy promoting the Wells Fargo Grant a Wish program. Wells Fargo and Nevada Public Education Foundation teamed up to offer nearly $30,000 in grants to Nevada’s schools. The applications are in and this year the amount of applications doubled compared to last year.
Two big reasons for this may be:
- This year there is an even bigger need for additional funds in the classroom.
- A-List Media did a great job getting the word out there (If I do say so myself).
Once the money has been allocated I will put out a link so you all can see some of the creative programs our schools and teachers have brought together.
And one more thing…
Everyone who knows me knows that October is my birthday month. Thanks to all those that sent me birthday wishes, positive thoughts and presents. I look forward to extending my birthday through this weekend when I will be reconnecting with friends. After all, what good is a birthday if you can’t make it last? Happy birthday to all my fellow Librans.
