Anglophile dream come true!!

Yes, that's right.  It's me and my new pal, Elton John!  I was incredibly lucky and won the Godiva Chocolate Valentine's Day Game sweepstakes.  The prize was an all-expenses paid trip to New York City, along with the opportunity to attend the Elton John AIDS Foundation's Enduring Vision benefit.  I also got to present Sir Elton a check, on behalf of Godiva, in the amount of $200,000 for the foundation:

Me, my husband Hans, Elton John, Jim Goldman (CEO of Godiva) and Gigi Goldman
 As if that weren't exciting enough, I also got to choose a charity to receive a $20,000 donation in my name.  I was thrilled to be able to choose the Best Friends Animal Society in Kanab, Utah as the recipient!

So I've had an exciting few days.  Not only did Sir Elton perform numerous songs, but plenty of delicious Godiva chocolate was on offer, so it was a perfect evening!

Thanks so much to the Godiva company for providing such a wonderful experience!!

How absolutley wonderful !
You looked lovely, by the way, just spiffing, in your black evening gown. Such a thrill to share the stage with Sir Elton, and it looks like a grand time was had by all !

Thanks for your kind words! Godiva sent a hair and makeup artist to my room before the event. She did a fantastic job, considering what she had to work with, LOL!
