The Murray's Break Into New York's "Social Diary"!

Ali and I have been unusually active in Manhattan charity circles lately and have been surprised to find our selves surrounded by New York's "social elite." Earlier this month we ran across Goldman's CEO and his daughter at a fund raiser for Ali's new favorite charity: Team Rubicon. This commendable group of Ex-Marines was recently profiled on 60 Minutes for their mission of helping former combat soldiers cope with PTSD by responding to natural disaster. The event was held at a night club donated by a Rockaway's resident who was grateful for the help this group provided after hurricane Sandy.

A few days later we went to the Koch Theater in Lincoln Center for a fund raiser benefiting the School of American Ballet. While trying to restrain Ali from wandering into a sea of tuxedos and evening gowns, we were accosted by a gentleman with a large camera who captured our essence in a flash and then asked us to speak our full names into a recording device.  Several days later we saw our picture on row 16 of the New York Social Daily, four rows above Mayor Bloomberg and Donald Trump!
