Macy's Shopping Spree & Pineapple Room Breakfast

It doesn't get much better than this..ProjectFocus gave each participant a $100 Macy's gift certificate so they could purchase clothing for their opening night exhibit reception on August 6th.  Armed and ready they hit the store before it opened to the public.  The Macy's team was great!  Breakfast by The Pineapple Room was delicious!  Did these kids "shine" or what?

Well we did it. Opening night was an amazing success!

The Recap: The kids got there nice and early, eager to start. Mary Scott Lau took them into the “Green Room” where they got last minute instructions and did more media training practice. Here is Devron perfecting his handshake.

The kids looked and felt confident in their new clothes. They got into position, next to their photographs.

Sean Tiwanak and his crew entertained the crowd all night.

It got crowded really quick. At the height of the event, it was 300 strong. The kids were poised and super all night long.

Wally Amos kicked off the program with a message of positive thinking.

What a wonderful event–a night we won’t soon forget. We would like to thank everyone for their support and love throughout.
