Thank you Joe, I was not able to attend on Saturday. I had a Mother's Day Pow Wow this last weekend of which I sat on the committee for the last several months. It was very successful! We had over 6,000 people attending, of which there were at least 40 vendors, plus an additional 8 food vendors and 5 information booths. I was very pleased with the success. I should have notified you earlier. Sorry, I was especially busy the last 2 weeks with the event, including following up with sponsors, raffle donors, and the official mother's day gift coordinator. I was honored to be apart of the event from inception.
How was the Cedillo event? I hope a success!
Be blessed : )
I read your profile and I would like to introduce myself. I was also born and raised in LA. I am also a license real estate broker. I am on this networking website to do exactly that, network. Are you still doing real estate?
