Yes, once again it was that time of year where threw a huge Charity Event in aid of the Gleaners and Oakland County Food Banks and the Children's Hospital.

On Tuesday, Dec. 16th, 2003 Exclusive Magazine held it's '2nd Annual Charity Event' at Hillside Furniture in Bloomfield Hills.

We had many, many people come out and join us that night ... including our Guest Star of the event, Red Wing Pavel Datsyuk! Spending about two hours there signing autographs and chatting with his fans, Pavel enabled us to garner 1,186lbs of canned goods and about 100 brand new toys for the Children's Hospital of Detroit.

But, as you are all well aware by now, due to illness Joey Gaydos, Jr. from the hit movie 'School of Rock' could not attend that night in question. However, he has vowed to join us at our next Charity Event, so good news there.

And, for some people there were also lucky ticket numbers for the lottery-style giveaway which enabled some to go home with CDs, DVDs, Videos, Books and even T-shirts and caps!

And then, for all those Exclusive Magazine readers that had donated throughout the year to our causes, the Conference Room had been filled with food donated to our evening and made available for them all to feast upon during the event! Not to mention the fact that Pavel himself drew the winning tickets after the event in the very same room which decided who would go home with bonus prizes such as Salvatore Scallopini Gift Certificates, AUTOGRAPHED '8 Mile' posters and Hillside Furniture goodies!

So, thank you ALL again for making our 'Exclusive Magazine 2nd Annual Charity Event' the fantastic bash that it was and for enabling the lesser fortunate people in the community to eat well over this Holiday period and for bringing a smile to the children's faces that find themselves in Hospital as the snow falls.

Take care, one and all, and thank you again for ALL your support to both and our charities, and we wish each and everyone of you a very Merry Christmas and best wishes for a Happy New Year.
