Gala for
 Little Baby Face Foundation caps 2006 in fine style

The Racket & Tennis Club on Park Avenue in NYC was the site for Believe in Miracles IV Gala Benefit for the Little Baby Face Foundation (LBF).  The guests savored delicious buffet-style cuisine and sumptuous desserts while they enjoyed activities in every room of the club, from rocking dance music by a great live band to a casino night where guests played blackjack, roulette and craps, accumulating chips which then were exchanged for door prize tickets.  A silent auction held throughout the night offered everything from jewelry items and trips to VIP seats at major television shows, sports and theatre, all donated by generous companies and individual supporters of LBF. 

Front and center at the event attended by hundreds of supporters and media, was the official presentation of Rudy Gaskill's Telly Award winning documentary entitled "Causing the Miraculous".  LBF founder and Chairman of the Board, Dr. Thomas Romo introduced Gaskill who is President of Push Creative, a production company located in lower Manhattan that has worked with some of the top companies,

The video documents the story of Terrelle Davis, a young teen who was helped by LBF when Dr. Romo and his professional staff.  Among the guests were personalities from stage and screen, producers, patrons of the arts, advertising and media professionals, politicians and doctors.

Dr, Thomas Romo founded The Little Baby Face Foundation with a team of highly respected otologic and plastic surgeons and industry professionals, who seek to improve the lives of children born with facial deformities through surgery.  The foundation provides corrective surgery and medical care, as well as travel to and from New York City, where these children undergo treatment, at no cost to them or their families.

SIDEBARLaughs

They say "Crime doesn't pay" which is true, but you have to wonder why these inept would-be criminals even tried!

Like the man attempting to hold-up a bank and wrote the stick-up note on the back of HIS OWN deposit slip.

Or how about the couple on a nationally-syndicated court show that questioned the victim in the courtroom: : 
"Well, If you knew we were liars and thieves, why did you trust us with your property?"

Or the guy went into the bank, handed a teller a stickup note, only to be told to wait for the next available teller, which he did patiently-stocking mask and all-until the police called his number and let him away in handcuffs.

Or the color-blind counterfeiter who made BOTH sides of the bogus bills the same color?

and our personal favorite...the man who broke free from police and led them on a 30 block chase through the city streets.  When the suspect came to a dead-end he scaled the tall fence...only to find he had just climbed the fence INTO the County Jail!
