    I’m running Reach The Beach May 18-19 and would LOVE to celebrate finishing by enjoying a night on the Cape enjoying the Figawi Ball. Plus, I work for a charity, so it’d be nice to be on the other side for a change! ;)

    I would love to win this prize because the Cape in May is amazing and also because it benefits such a wonderful charity! Also, my boyfriend and I have never met a dance floor we didn’t like!

    My boyfriend and I returned to Boston this January after volunteering with children for a year in Costa Rica, and we’ve been working out butts off ever since trying to catch up financially and physically (we are training for a 1/2 marathon early next month). Our 5 year anniversary, and I couldn’t think of a better way to spend it than at the Figawi Charity Ball!!

    I’ve always wanted to go to something Figawi! Plus, we finish “Reach the Beach” that day, and I think I’ll need some cocktails!

    I am from the Cape and have never been able to attend the Figawi event. I have always wanted to, but being a local I typically spent the Springs and Summer working three jobs. One summer I literally went from a morning catering gig, to working at an ice cream shop and then selling tickets at the theatre 6 days a week, and had a half day off on sundays. Now that my life is less busy,tee hee, (just a working mom with two small kiddos and training for 6 half marathons this year – Boston run to Remember included) I would love the opportunity to have a date out with my hubby and head down. Plus, a joke growing up when we got lost was ALWAYS, “where the fugawi?” tee hee :)
