Charity Selection for Bal Erotique…your thoughts?

Hello All,

This year, a portion of the ticket sale proceeds will go to a charity. We have narrowed down our charity selection to 7 organizations. Before I select one, i would like to get an idea of which you think we should support, and at the same time raise awareness about these GREAT charities…
Below is a list of those charities with a short paragraph description of their mission.
We will announce our selection sometime next week on, and we will also be asking guests to donate a couple extra dollars at the event where we will be placing some boxes for extra donation collections.
