For the American Fertility Association’s Illuminations night invitations were issued to a Greek bride and a dead housewife.  Nia Vardolos from My Fat Greek Wedding was given the Carolyn Berger Adoption Advocacy Award and Brenda Strong, the ghostly narrator from Desperate Housewives, was a mistress of ceremonies.  I was one of the guests pigging out on the delicious hors d’oeuvres and dinner served at the Lighthouse at Chelsea Piers.  It was a full house with many fans of fertility and the right to have a baby.



AFA Illuminations A Brilliant Success!

The American Fertility Association’s Illuminations NYC had a great view of the lights of Times Square seen from a big picture window at ABC studios.  The featured entertainers included Annie from Broadway singing Maybe, and Rosie O’Donnell telling  jokes as she presented the advocacy award to Dan Bucatinski.  Many infertility notables were present including infertility doctors, lawyers and organizations.  I closed the shades and changed in my office just in time to hop the train and arrive appropriately dressed for the gala.  Since the advent of cell phones, it would have been too difficult to locate a phone booth for my super party woman transformation.
