We wrapped up 2012 with plenty of events in November and December that didn’t disappoint. The end of the year is always notable in the philanthropic community of Northwest Arkansas for the array of events that take place.
Several organizations held their annual benefits in November, including the Washington Regional Medical Center Foundation, which held its popular Autumn Brunch at the home of Joanie and Jon Dyer. Loving Choices held its annual Fall Banquet for guests to support the mission of the organization. The Association of Fundraising Professionals celebrated National Philanthropy Day by honoring individuals and organizations that have improved the quality of life in our community. November also had its share of galas and formal events. Youth Bridge’s It’s a Wonderful Life Gala included a roast of Shawn Baldwin, Senior Vice President of Freezer-Cooler Merchandising for Sam’s Club U.S. and Puerto Rico. The Jewels of Giving Gala raised funds to help the NWA Food Bank continue to nourish our community. Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. and the Tea Rose Foundation of Northwest Arkansas once again teamed up for the Emerald City Scholarship Event. Attendees to the Voyage for Hospice Gala helped make dreams come true for patients and families of Circle of Life Hospice.
In addition to these galas, a few organizations broke the mold. The Ryan Murphy Foundation held an 80s Night to raise funds for the Cancer Support Home of Benton County. Art was the name of the game for several events. Arts Center of the Ozarks held the 10th annual 5x5 Auction & Jazz Soiree, which featured over 350 local artists’ work on 5x5 canvasses. Benton County Sunshine School displayed the artwork of its students and local artists at A Very Special Art Show, and the Northwest Arkansas Women’s Shelter displayed even more artwork up for grabs at the Fresh StART Art Auction.

December may have been a quiet month, but the highlight was not hard to miss—O’ Night Divine Charity Ball is a hit every year and this year was no different. The evening to benefit the Mercy Health Foundation Northwest Arkansas kicked off with a VIP hour, where General Mills was honored as the 2012 Outstanding Philanthropic Corporation. As attendees arrived they were greeted with live music in the atrium of the John Q. Hammons Center, a fun photo experience with Kodak and of course plenty of socializing with the who’s who of Northwest Arkansas.
Inside the event hall, Shirley’s Flowers’ beautiful creations were the focal point of the tables. Guests dined on a delicious menu of lobster mac and cheese, garlic and rosemary filet mignon, pecancrusted chicken and polished the delicious meal off with mini cupcakes. After dinner, Dick Trammel appealed to the crowd for his annual Dickey Ray Club, where over $75,000 was raised for the Mobile Health Bus that Mercy expects to roll out this year. The Health Bus will help the hospital reach the underserved and rural communities in Northwest Arkansas. The live auction went on to raise even more funds for the Foundation through items such as a Lake Tahoe Ski Retreat, a trip to the Academy of Country Music Awards and a yacht racing extravaganza.

Country music artist Easton Corbin wowed supporters with his rendition of O’ Holy Night and helped end the night on a very high note. He performed a few of his radio hits, and held a meet and greet after the show for VIP guests. After Easton left the stage, attendees were invited to continue the party at the After-Glow bash by New Creature, with a Hershey Bliss Coffee Bar. D.J. Kirby helped guests dance the rest of the night away.

Party in honor of the King
The King of Rock and Roll would celebrate his 78th birthday on January 8. Born in 1935 in Tupelo, Miss., Elvis Presley may not be around to celebrate, but that doesn’t mean we can’t do a little bit of reveling for him. Elvis was a cultural icon of his lifetime and beyond. He fascinated millions of people around the world who grew up listening to his music throughout the peak of his career and millions more from generations to come. We plan to celebrate his birthday in style—just the way he would want it, by throwing together a peanut butter and banana sandwich, putting on a few of his iconic tunes, and dreaming of hanging out with the King himself. Here are a few facts you may not know about the man, the myth, the legend….
1. When Elvis received a guitar for his eleventh birthday, he was disappointed; he was hoping for a bike. 2. It is unclear whether Elvis’ middle
9. Elvis starred in 31 feature films as an actor and two theatrically released concert documentary films. 10. The first Grammy Award Elvis received was for the 1967
name is spelled Aron or Aaron. Aron was the spelling his parents chose, apparently to make it similar to the middle name of Elvis’ stillborn identical twin, Jesse Garon Presley. Eventually, Elvis sought to change the spelling of his middle name to the traditional and biblical Aaron. In the process, he learned that offcial state records had inexplicably listed it as Aaron and not Aron as on his original birth records.
3. In the eighth grade, Elvis received a “C” in music.
4. “Heartbreak Hotel” was the first Elvis single to sell over a million copies. 5. Elvis made only one appearance at the Grand Ole Opry, in October of 1954. After being told he should go back to truck driving, Elvis swore to never return to the Grand Ole Opry and he never did.
Gospel release, “How Great Thou Art.”
11. Elvis wore a cross, a star of David, and other religious symbols around his neck, explaining “I don’t want to miss out on heaven due to a technicality.” 12. Elvis was awarded two medals while serving in the Army, one for expert marksmanship, the other for sharpshooting.
13. Elvis was six feet tall. 14. Elvis died of a heart attack on August 16, 1977. Many mistakenly believe he died of a drug overdose. 15. Elvis is the best selling
solo artist in U.S. history and remained at the top of the charts for 80 weeks, more weeks than any other artist.
6. Elvis never learned to read music. 7. Elvis bought Graceland in 1957 for $100,000. Today Graceland is one of the most visited homes in America, now attracting over 600,000 visitors annually. 8. Elvis’ natural hair color was blond (in his early years) and light/dirty brown; he dyed it black.

By the end of the year, you’ll be healthier, happier and hopefully still inspired to make positive changes and decisions for your life.
1.Start the year with new supplements. Purchase a pill box and put it to use. Be sure to take a daily multivitamin to make sure you’re consuming the essential vitamins and minerals you may not be getting from food.
2.Get a physical... and talk with your doctor about important exams and tests you may need in the upcoming year.
3.Drink more water. Make it your goal to drink at least eight glasses of water a day.
4.Pamper yourself... with a massage from Spa Botanica. 5.Try a week of a meal delivery service... like Freshology Gold - a nationally distributed program designed for weight loss, jump-starting your metabolism and living a healthy lifestyle.
6.Fill your house with a few houseplants... to promote air purification and humidification which will help keep your skin hydrated and help fight illness. 7.Buy a healthy cookbook. Love Paula Deen’s recipes? Check out her son’s new cookbook coming out in February for great comfort food recipes at 350 calories or less.
8.Make time to call... your mom or an old friend to catch up. When life gets busy,
our friendships often suffer so make sure to set aside sometime for a mental health boost with your loved ones.
9.Stretch daily... to improve your flexibility, circulation, coordination and energy levels.
10.Book a facial... with Premier Dermatology & Skin Renewal Clinic. Target any skin issues you may have easily with a facial.
11.Plan your meals for the month. Meal planning helps you save money, waste less food, spend less time at the grocery store, eat healthier and plan ahead. Click here to print an easy monthly meal planner.
12.Buy a new fitness DVD... and try it out for the week as an easy way to get active from the comfort of your own home. 13.Create a smart sleeping environment... by turning off the TV and closing your laptop an hour before bed.
These devices are known to suppress melatonin, a hormone that regulates your body clock.
14.Revamp your closet. Turn all the hangers in your closet so they are facing the opposite direction. In one year, if they are still facing opposite, donate the clothing to a deserving organization.
15.Order fresh flowers... from Shirleyâ€™s Flowers and Gifts to keep throughout your home. This simple step is guaranteed to make you happier.
16.Try a week of sunrise yoga... to start your days off on the right foot. 17.Reward yourself with a manicure... if youâ€™ve worked out and eaten well for a week.
18.Eat a good breakfast everyday, after all it is the most important meal of the day. 15

19.Make some substitutes... for your favorite foods and ingredients. Choose three foods you eat every day, write down the nutritional content and, the next time you’re at the store, find lower-calorie substitutes for just those three items.
20.Get measured for the perfect fitting bra. Many of us would be surprised to learn we are not wearing the right size. 21.Get a full eight hours... of sleep every night. 22.Step out of the box... and start a new workout regimen or try a new class
at the gym. It’s important to keep your excise fresh and fun to get you interested and your body engaged.
23.Get a personal trainer... who can tell you what you’re doing wrong in the gym and help you fine-tune your workouts. 24.Be sun smart. Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer and sun exposure
increases your risk, so be sure to cover up with a high SPF sunscreen every day.
25.Go out of your way to plan a date night... with your guy or girlfriends to reconnect and recharge. 26.Buy organic... fruits and veggies for a week. Though they might be slightly pricier, the nutrient benefits are worth it.

27.Clean your make up brushes. Use a mild baby shampoo like Johnson’s or makeup brush shampoo to get the grit and grime off your favorite brushes.
28.Get a foot massage... or roll your feet on a tennis ball to save your achy feet and stimulate the more than 7,000 nerves found in your feet.
29.Subscribe to a health or fitness magazine... for monthly inspiration and to get reenergized. 30.Save money by taking your lunch to work. Pack your meal the night before so you’re not throwing together a brown bag in the morning. 31.Do one thing every day that scares you. Step out of your comfort zone and try new things.
32.Go out on a limb and change your hair color. Take a risk and try a shade you’ve always wanted to try but never got around to doing it. 33.Lace up your running shoes... and start the Couch-to-5K running plan. Whether you’re a novice or experienced runner, this plan makes running simple and fun for just 20 minutes a day.
34.Start your days earlier. Force yourself to be a morning person for one week to promote productivity in your daily life.
35. Be conscious about your posture... and work to improve it this week. Sit up straight and work to improve your core muscles to do so.
SEPTEMBER 36.Schedule all of your annual health checkups... (eyes, teeth, mammogram, etc.). Get these done for your
own peace of mind and you’ll feel better just by taking action.
37.Take new family photos... whether a sit down with a professional or simply pulling out
your own point and shoot to snap some photos of your own, you don’t need an excuse to have photos of your family.

41.Take a weekend vacation. Get away for a few days by yourself, with family or a few friends. 42.Take 15 minutes every day... to practice meditation and deep breathing. Centering yourself from within has profound impact on your external life.
43.Swap your daily cup of coffee for tea. Tea is packed with all kinds of vitamins and minerals that are good for you, and also packs the energy boost you can get from coffee.
44.Try better household cleaning products... that not only protect the environment but your health as well. 45.Try cutting back on caffeine this week. Start by cutting out a cup of coffee or soda a day, and see if you can build yourself up to a whole day without caffeine.
46.Write down your pit and peak of the day. This helps us focus on the positive and also make changes to get rid of the negatives in our lives. 47.Plan a few ways to give back to your community. Take time to feel grateful for what you have and share it with others.
DECEMBER 48.Challenge yourself... to sit down every day and read a new book just for fun.
49.Try a new make up routine. Mix it up and try one new trend or product youâ€™ve been eyeing.
50.Do a BluePrint Cleanse... to rid your body of impurities, regain an alkaline balance and normalize digestion and metabolism.
