I had a great evening in a suite at Tropicana Field watching the Rays pull out a close victory over the Blue Jays.  I was joined by Patrick and Holly Wright, recording artist David Nail, Vincent Dolan, President and CEO of Progress Energy, and John Heltzer.  The game was auctioned off at a fundraiser a few months ago for the Payton Wright Foundation for Cancer Research, which is very near and dear to my heart.  Country star, David Nail, has become close friends with the Wright family after hearing about their tragic loss of their 4 girl old daughter, Payton, to cancer.  David performed at a fundraiser for the Wright Foundation and joined us in the box for the Rays game!  It was a terrific evening and I can't thank Vincent and the generous people at Progress Energy enough for their support!
