The ballroom at The Ritz -Carlton was filled to capacity last night when co-chairs Terry McAuliffe and Samia Farouki hosted a gala for the first time to benefit Tomorrow’s Youth Organization, a group whose mission is to work in disadvantaged areas of the Middle East to help children, teens and their parents build strong, responsible communities. TYO is the brainchild of Hani Masri who founded the organization in 2007 with a vision and a mission to improve the lives of those suffering from poverty and violence.

Rainy DayWould you believe me if I told you I took this picture at 11:30 am?

In honor of this fall’s first rainy day–a poem!

Rain

I opened my eyes
And looked up at the rain,
And it dripped in my head
And flowed into my brain,
And all that I hear as I lie in my bed
Is the slishity-slosh of the rain in my head.

I step very softly,
I walk very slow,
I can’t do a handstand–
I might overflow,
So pardon the wild crazy thing I just said–
I’m just not the same since there’s rain in my head.

-Shel Silverstein

TYO Volunteer Trip

On Saturday, 8 August about 40 people, including several TYO volunteers, some of their siblings and two TYO Staff members went on a trip to Tulkarm.  It was an exciting trip for the many as they have never been to the city before. While in Tulkarm, the group enjoyed a visit to Alwaha Park where they swam and sang in the sun.
