Luke and I had a very exciting evening tonight. I didn’t know when we went to the China Care Brown benefit dinner that we would get to sit next to the president. She seemed really nice, and someone there said that she was the most popular president in America, but I think he might have been a bit biased. If you haven’t figured it out yet, I am talking about the president of Brown University, Ruth Simmons.
It was a really nice dinner, and you’ll never guess what we had! Chinese food! Surprised? 🙂
The benefit dinner was to raise funds to help build orphanages and pay for surgeries for the orphans. Many of the children have cleft lip/palate, or other “difficulties” that keep anyone from wanting to adopt them. A relatively inexpensive surgery will change these kids lives for the better.
