American Cancer Society’s Hope Lodge Reception and Tree Lighting Celebration

Michael Storrings and Diana Williams will be hosting the American Cancer Society’s The Hope Lodge Reception and Tree Lighting Celebration at a benefit for the non-profit cancer patient residence on December 4 in New York City. More information, an invitation to the event, and opportunities to donate can be found on Hope Lodge’s website.

With so many people facing cancer, it is wonderful to see that the American Cancer Society provides free temporary housing for 22,000 people a year in New York City who are receiving cancer treatments.

Ornament Signing; Final Day in New Orleans

Michael Storrings will be signing his book and ornaments for the second and final day this year in New Orleans today. He will be at the Lakeside, Metairie location, signing his Galatoire’s Ornament, among other New Orlean’s landmarks.

A Very New York Christmas Book & Amazon Comment

a very new york christmasToday, Michael Storrings’ first Christmas book, somewhat based on his European hand-blown and painted ornaments, arrived in the stores. I posted the first comment on about it today as well. As a matter of fact, this was the first Amazon comment I ever made (over all the years I have been purchasing on the site)!

I really meant everything I said in the review, and having received and read my copy today, I have to confess that there are few other ways $13.57 (the current Amazon price) can be spent in a better way.
