Today was the Los Angeles Ladies Bikur Cholim Luncheon. I was undecided as of an hour before it began whether l would go or not. Not because I don’t support this wonderful cause, I just wasn’t sure if I would be up to crowds of people.
After deciding to launch the 613 merits a day for Benny early this morning and given permission to do so at the luncheon, I headed out. Upon arriving at this most magnificent luncheon I was told by one of the organization’s founders that the entire event was being dedicated to Benny’s Refuah. I could barely speak, but as tears streamed down my cheek, it was clearly visible how moved I was.
The theme of the luncheon was The Ultimate Cupcake Challenge. It sure was a close competition in presentation and taste. Benny did his own judging too!
