I am still so inspired from an incredible evening last night with Leigh Anne Tuohy. If that name doesn’t ring a bell, perhaps you might remember Sandra Bullock‘s Oscar-winning performance as Leigh Anne Tuohy in the movie The Blindside. Leigh Anne came to Montreal to speak to 800 Jewish women for our yearly fundraiser called Choices. I was fortunate enough to chair this event a few years ago, and it’s one of my favorite events of the year. Each year, we bring in a different woman who has had to make brave choices in her life… we have seen Marlee Matlin, and many other inspirational women.

I encourage you to watch this little video first if you aren’t familiar with the Tuohy Family and Michael Oher story.
