In summary, the RMH in Chicago provided a place for my parents to stay during my week-long stay at Shriners Children's Hospital, about 2-3 hours away from home-- and with no charge. It's an incredible place that allows families like mine to be together during difficult times.
The night began with both fun and beautiful selections. After I gave a power point presentation about RMHC and what they have done for me and my family, the rest of the night contained more movie theme songs and fun music, a couple of which included my own laboriously created arrangements.
I am learning more about organizational skills, to say the least, between advertising, programs, the music itself, sound systems, display tables, power points, and who knows what else. But I am relieved to look back on a successful night that was actually fun!
