October is one of my favorite times of the year! I feel fortunate to have my health and a balanced life when I turn 30 this month and it also brings about one of my favorite celebrations, Halloween. As a geek, I find the history of Halloween, or All Hallows Eve, quite interesting, but as a creature of the night, I encourage you all to check out the special events this month.
NGLTF's Miami Recognition Dinner
Party and benefit a great cause by attending the 15th annual Miami Recognition Dinner hosted by the National Gay & Lesbian Task Force on October 15th. The dinner serves to honor national and local heroes that have made an impact to the GLBT community. This year, the dinner will honor Georg Ketelhohn and Rugby World Champion, Ben Cohen. The event will take place in the fabulous Sparkle Ballroom at the prestigious Fontainebleau in Miami Beach. For more information, visit them online at MiamiRecognitionDinner.com
