This event was created to help raise funds to fight hunger here in the U.S., similar to the events done previously with the USA for Africa, to give aid to end hunger on that continent.
A while back I was going through some old photos and came across this one of my best friend (my "sister" Priscilla, whom I've known since First Grade!) and myself (I am the one with the shades on, So Cool!), right before the event actually started. Without question this was one of the Most Amazing events I have ever taken part in, New York City, a gorgeous Spring day, Memorial Day weekend, and for us Argentines it commemorated our Declaration of Independence (May 25, 1810). It was truly an incredible day on so many levels!
Next you will see that photo as well as additional photos I have taken today, including within an informational letter I had received, my official place in line: West 50th St. and 12th Ave., plus the brochure which came in that mailing.
My previous posts were with the hope of garnering support for a 30th. Anniversary Celebration of that historic event, ideally on the same date this year May 25, 2016 (today) or possibly the Memorial Day Weekend (Saturday May 28 or Sunday May 29). Sadly, this did not come to pass and all I can do is share it via my blog in remembrance
