Light the Night

Hey all!
My husband, my brother and I are doing the Light the Night Walk for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society tonight. It's last minute because for some reason I totally didn't hear about it until yesterday. We've started a team page and would be appreciative of any support you can give...

Now on to the Weekly Planner:
State Fair starts this week!
I'm doing photos at a totally fun charity walk this weekend that would be GREAT for the kids if you don't have plans on Saturday morning. It takes place at the zoo, so the walk fee gets you into the zoo AND helps fund research for Autism. Lots of other fun things going on this HOT weekend too. (seriously? fall and winter are over already?)
First is a cause close to my heart: Tonight is Light the Night for the Leukemia and Lymphoma society. It is a 2.5 mile walk in the dark around Tempe Town Lake. If you wish you could come, but are busy and still want to donate to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, I've created a team page:
ZooWalk - benefits Researh for Treatments for Autism Spectrum Disorders
State Fair - Check here for ideas for how to do it on the cheap. And here for the weird food they have.
Desert Botanical Garden is holding their Music in the Garden again.
Beauty of a Bonzer - Charity event featuring Kool & the Gang and the Commodores. Saturday, USAirways Arena
Frank Kush Run/Walk - Family & Dog Run & Walk, Saturday, Tempe Town Lake

Restaurant of the Week
For the Restaurant of the Week, how about YOU cook? The Hackett House in Tempe is holding a series of cooking classes (Mondays into December) taught by local chefs. They've got a wide variety of food they'll have you cook. This sounds like an EXCELLENT idea. Who's in?
This week, obviously, I'm thinking about Autism research. Did you know 1 in 150 children are diagnosed with Autism? The Zoo Walk is an easy, fun way to contribute, but for more information on Autism reserch, read here. And as they say, Autism is Treatable!

How about grabbing your camera and checking out some fall colors!
