Barbara Bentley - Gala on September 15, 2012

Deborah Alessi, co-founder of the non-profit Face Forward, read
my book "A Dance with the Devil" while on vacation in May.  She
immediately invited me to be on the Honorary Committee.  The
fund raising gala was held on September 15, 2012, at the Beverly
Wilshire Hotel.  My Godson, Scott, escorted me.
