Oh, Did We Come Together: The Broke Socialite Helps Macy's Fight Hunger

Hi y'all!

How are you?

I've missed you, sure enough.  I've been busier than a one-legged woman in a butt kicking contest.  Not too busy for a cause, though.  The folks at Macy's asked The Broke Socialite to host a dinner party to bring awareness to and discuss the real issue of hunger and the 10 million people who are dealing with it each and every day.  For the majority of this month, Macy's 'Come Together' initiative has utilized an array of media to educate us all and raise money. Today is the last day you can go to Macy's and make a donation to Feed America. You can also use this link.

Instead of spending an exhorbitant amount of money on food (I just couldn't), I thought it might be a good idea to put a TBS spin on said soiree.  I opted to host a brunch and each attendee made a donation to the cause.  For less than $50, I created a simple menu for 6:
In addition to myself, Christie and The Boy (of course), Joan of All TradesThe Fabulous Do-Gooder and my friend, Denise enjoyed the fellowship.  "A Good Time Was Had By All" was an understatement. Brunch began at 1 PM and didn't wrap up until 6 PM.  TBS throws a great party.  I've included recipes for my menu.
