Paul Ruby Foundation - VOTE!!!

I wanted to share a couple of emails I recently received as I believe this is a great cause to get involved in. Last year I donated some sessions and packages to the silent auction that benefitted this wonderful foundation. We need your VOTE!!:

Most of you know Paul Ruby and the foundation he started for Parkinson's research. Paul was diagnosed three years ago at age 44, and has made an incredible contribution with the foundation already, raising over $100,00.

The Paul Ruby Foundation has been selected as one of the finalists to receive a $25,000 grant (the "Mark of Distinction) from Markham Winery. Voting begins online today and continues through August 24. The two organizations with the most votes will receive the grants.

Vote by clicking here:
