I'm so honored to have won my first Emmy for Make A Wish Mondays! This organization is incredible! Thank you Mike Burke, CEO of Make A Wish CT, for helping me come up with this idea. Mike Dominick for helping me with every wish story! Make A Wish CT for making me feel like a part of your wish family. And to all the Make A Wish kids... you have touched my life more than you know. I am changed, truly impacted forever because of you. Thank you.

It was truly an honor to host Make A Wish CT's 25th Anniversary Gala at Mohegan Sun. Everyone was so generous. We raised more than $400,000! Hosting with Joe D'Ambrosio was a blast - voice of the UCONN Huskies! But we were all there for one reason... to raise money for all the Make A Wish kids. These children sometimes lose their childhood... fighting illnesses, going through surgeries, etc. But Make A Wish gives them a day or a week to forget all that. It's an amazing organization, and I was truly honored to host this event. Thank you to CEO Mike Burke for the beautiful trophy. It means so much to me, and thank you Make A Wish for everything you do.
