Taste of the Nation Portsmouth
Today I volunteered all day until my Miss Derry interview at Strawberry Banke in Portsmouth to set up for Share Our Strength's Taste of the Nation! It was a lot of fun setting up before the event. They sold over 800 tickets and it was a huge success despite the weather. The Taste raised over $100,000 to help end childhood hunger. I saw Emily Heubner who is on the National Share Our Strength team and works with Taste of the Nation's across America. I met her in January when I went to Washington DC to learn more about SOS. I heard I missed Billy Shore at the event too which was sad but I am sure our paths will cross soon. I got out of interviews at 9pm which was too late to go back to Portsmouth to enjoy all the delicious food...so sad. So my night consisted of SUBWAY-eat fresh :) I am excited to see all of the pictures from the event and to hear how well it turned out.
