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?
