I hope you survived Mardi Gras. What a jam-packed season this year. With the beginning of Lent, things have slowed down a bit, allowing us all to catch our breath before the spring social season kicks into high gear.

On the horizon are the Advertising Federation's ADDY awards and Boys & Girls Club Great Futures Gala, both on March 3; the Multiple Sclerosis On the Move Luncheon on March 7; City Year's School House Rock Gala on March 8; and Juvenile Diabetes Association's Denim & Diamonds Gala on March 9.
