    Nice for the Today Show to show more skating with current skaters, especially Javi. I remember when he was wide eyed young kid in New Jersey a few years back. FSH is a great cause!

    Spotted in the crowd socializing: Tracy Wilson and Sandra Bezic. Bezic, in person, looks like a million bucks. Hair highlight of the night was Johnny's pompadour; when I complimented him on it, he leaned over so I could pat it. My brush with greatness, LOL.

    If you just got your tax return, or won the lottery, you can participate in the online auction. Lot 343310: Special Opportunity to Meet President Bill Clinton. Estimated value: $20,000. Lot 343309: Meet Brian Boitano at a Private Training Session in San Francisco. Estimated value: $1,000. Lot 343300 Luxury Suite for 22 People for a 2013 Mets Homegame at CitiField. Estimated value: $10,000. And so on and so on.

    I think Tamara Tunie is ageless. So glad to see her continued support of FSIH.

    To this old lady too; Adam Rippon kindly held a door open for me and didn't let it slam in my face.

    Great cause and it's nice to see so many skaters dedicating their time and talent. A lot of skaters also serve on the Board and help support the organization in more ways than just the one fundraiser.

    New NYC resident Nastia Liukin was there this year as well and so was Olympic fencer Tim Morehouse who has established his own charity to help get school kids involved with fencing.

    Have to say that I was the MOST star struck when Andrea Joyce, Tracy Wilson and Sandra Bezic were standing together in front of me chatting away.
