5th Annual Masquerade Ball

John and I went to a benefit for the UTMB OB/GYN department last weekend. It was a Mardi Gras/Masquerade Ball theme. The proceeds benefited a domicile for low-income women in high risk pregnancies in Galveston. It is an on campus "hotel" where women who are close to delivery can stay in the event that they don't have transportation to the hospital when they go into labor. Most of these mothers lack social support and have medical conditions significant enough through their pregnancy that they require management by the Maternal Fetal Medicine team. Of course, this is near and dear to my heart because as I worked for the Maternal Child HIV clinic, we sent many patients to stay there. I like to think it help prevent some HIV transmission babies. Plus, it was ALOT of fun!
