Attending An Awards Ceremony At The United Nations Headquarters

On Monday evening, I attended a dinner at the United Nations Headquarters in New York City, escorted by my nephew, Christopher Herbert.  The reason was to attend an awards ceremony for The Women Together Association.  Women Together, in association with the United Nations, focuses on eradicating poverty by developing industries, such as local arts and crafts in underdeveloped countries, thereby empowering the individual and improving health and education.  Women have been the driving force behind these industries and beneficiaries of such financing.  Women Together honors prominent people in their fields who have contributed to this mission.  My friend, Patricia Ardila, was one of the honorees, along with another friend, Dominique Bluhdorn.  Congratulations to all of those honored for their amazing work.
