Jezebel Most Eligible

Posted in Around Atlanta on January 23, 2009 by Corinna Allen Cook

Last summer I had the honor to be named one of Atlanta’s “Most Eligible Singles” by Jezebel Magazine.

As part of the event, I agreed to auction off a “date”, with the proceeds benefiting the Make a Wish Foundation.

A friend named Michael Orcutt was kind enough to bid on me, and last week we finally went on the date!

Since he owns Dominos Pizza franchises, we decided our evening together should be a pizza party for some of the Make a Wish kids.

It turned out great!

The children are such an inspiration.

Thank you to Michael Orcutt, Jezebel Magazine and most of all, Make a Wish!

Check out me and my canine companion, Charley!

This pic was snapped as we strutted our stuff for “Doggies on the Catwalk” Friday night at Grady Highschool.

Charley’s family let me borrow the blond bomshell for the night.

She and I are wearing matching gowns made by Grady Highschool senior, Taylor Fulton.

In all,

 the evening raised more than two thousand dollars for an organization called Pets Are Loving Support.

Also known as “PALS” the group helps the elderly and people facing critical illness and disability to keep their existing pets, despite medical or financial challenges brought on by the illness.

A shout out for Oregon State University at today’s inauguration

Michelle Obama's brother

Watching today’s historic ceremony, I had to smile when I noticed what Michelle Obama’s brother was wearing.

Craig Robinson is the men’s basketball coach at Oregon State University, so when he introduced his sister at the Democratic Convention, he chose a neck tie in the school’s color, orange.

(See attatched picture).

Today he was sporting a scarf, again, supporting OSU in their colors of orange and black.

Made me smile and think of home.

Go Beavers!
