On August 6, the Women's National Republican Club --
sometimes referred to as the
3 West Club -- had a sold out event thanks to lovely Chair
Ronnie Perl: People came from near and far to listen to Dr.
Ben Carson announce his run for the presidency of the United
States. Falling short of that announcement, Dr. Carson held
the room in thrall discussing what ails this country, how he
would heal it, and his new book One
Nation. Later on in the Q & A, Actor Tony Lo Bianco was
so enthused he stood on line twice and asked two questions.
It was a wonderful, inspirational, hopeful evening for all.
