Liz and I were so proud to host last night's Crimson Knights Foundation Gala Awards Dinner at the Spring Lake Manor.

We had such a great time being around so many people who are passionate about helping the Wall School District, and also to celebrate some really awesome award recipients from Wall.

Here are three takeaways from last night's Crimson Knights Gala.

(1) There is a ton of passion among the parents and residents in Wall to help the children in the school district. We see that passion all year long.

(2) There were amazingly deserving honorees at last night's Gala, including Monmouth County Prosecutor Chris Gramiccioni, News 12 New Jersey's Marissa Brahney, and Les Hollander, the chairman of the Fine Arts and Music Department, each of whom gave amazing speeches.

(3) Liz and I can actually make it through an evening event without arguing even if we, due to circumstances out of our control, sit next to each other during the dinner. Small miracle. We got along so well that I took a selfie with her...sort of.
