Wow! What an exciting past few weeks it has been! I apologize for not being around a little more, but I had to take care of my lovely clients. Have I ever mentioned how much I love them? In the past month Christina Leigh Events has had a reception, engagement party, graduation, 3 weddings, a 50th wedding anniversary party, a trip to Fort Worth, TX for a 2013 bride, a cocktail party, a Miss Oklahoma dinner (that is 10 events in 4 weeks!) and met with 7 potential brides for weddings! Is God good or what! Not to mention this past week I was volunteering my time to make sure all 45 of the Miss Oklahoma Scholarship Pageant contestants, and 35 red coats, enjoyed their lunch and dinner donated by incredible sponsors and people who believe in the organization! We couldn’t have fed all of the ladies without awesome donors; Mrs. Fields Cookies-Woodland Hills Mall, Rib Crib-101st and Yale, McAlister’s Deli-81st and Lewis, The Upper Crust Catering, Mazzio’s (they have been donating lunches for 37 years!) McNellie’s, Subway, Charleston’s-71st and Yale, Coney Island-Jenks (they have been donating lunches for 36 years!), Qdoba-71st and Memorial, Charlie’s Chicken and so many more! Thank you to all of the donors and to the Kiwanis Club of Tulsa for sponsoring the pageant for 40 consecutive years, and congratulations to Miss Oklahoma 2012 Alicia Clifton!
