Nothing says Valentine’s Day like roses, chocolates and jewelry doesn’t hurt. Well, one lucky girl really got Cupid’s arrow to the heart by getting the ultimate gift: the R&B balladtress Mariah Carey. Ms. Mimi will give a private concert to Lisa Thomas tonight at her penthouse in NYC. The Valentine’s dream date also includes airfare and hotel for the lucky winner.
In exchange for being serenaded by the songstress, Lisa donated to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital that treats kids suffering from cancer and other serious illnesses. Here’s what entree winner Lisa had to say about the campaign.
I am over the moon with excitement and jumping around my apartment with my friend Andrew right now because WE CAN’T BELIEVE WE WON!!!”
We donated to Mariah’s campaign because it would be (and is!!!) an absolute dream come true, and we love that she is doing it to support a good cause. We’re also looking forward to thanking her in person for all of the music she has given us throughout the years. WE LOVE YOU MARIAH!!!”
Mariah expressed her enthusiasm about the cause.
You all know that this is my favorite time of the year, and so I’ve decided to give back and raise some funds for the incredible St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, a cause very close to my heart as a mom.
The campaign has ended with $168,775 going to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.
Hey, Lisa, quick tip, have MiMi sing her new song “You’re Mine (Eternal),” it’s magically romantic.
Happy V-Day, my loves.
