Oh, so Christina Gao is indeed attending Harvard? Good for her! :)

Did she announce any coaching changes to someone based in the Boston area?

This is wonderful, and I totally love the cast of skaters. I'm looking forward to reading the reviews. As I was checking out "An Evening With Champions" website, I noticed there were other ways to donate to the Jimmy Fund if we can't attend.

I just finished looking at the 2012 Holiday Greeting Cards (http://www.jimmyfund.org/gif/holiday/default.html), and they're beautiful! :)

:cheer: :cheer2:

And glad to see Emily has been added. I was wondering where she was initially.

If any other FSUers are going Saturday night, let me know. We can try to say hi. I'll try to provide reports and pictures although I don't love watching from behind a camera lens so we'll see how it goes.

Just got tickets for Sunday, as well. Tickets are for section 3, but not sure we'll be sitting there in the end. Looking forward to the awesome pairs line-up and all the promising juniors.
