Pictures are worth a thousand words. There were so many great pictures from the events I covered in 2005, but alas, there was so little space for the fantastic fund-raisers, parties just for fun, and more.
Those fund-raisers raked in the moola - an approximate reported net of more than $5 million dollars - from generous donors for all types of charities; from the arts like opera and symphony and social-service agencies like Mom's House to those organizations fighting life-threatening diseases.
But even though the year is over, our work isn't. These individuals and corporations have shown consistently that part of being successful is giving back to the community.
Here is the rest of the photos to wrap up a terrific 2005.
I'll keep an eye out for great things to happen in 2006.
