Late Night


Laura Garcia CannonWhy am I not here today? Because I was out “very late” last night! As a morning anchor that gets up at 2:45 a.m. anything past 7 p.m. is usually late night to me. On Thursday night, I went way past that, but it was all for a good cause, in support of the YWCA. They annually host what is called the “Twin Awards.” It is an event that recognizes successful female executives for their outstanding achievements. The women are nominated by companies and organizations in the Silicon Valley. The nominator must be the CEO or highest-ranking local officer or director in the company. The women are very accomplished, and kind. I always enjoy being the emcee for the event on behalf of NBC11.  I meet women who are able to juggle demanding careers, motherhood, households, marriage and just the day to day lists of things to do at both work and home effortlessly.

More so, proceeds from the event go to the YWCA. What a service they provide to the community, every day, 24 hours a day. With a Rape Crisis Center to help victims in need, counseling services, family services, and youth services, just to name a few, they are the true example of what it means to serve a community and people in a time of need.

You won’t be able to see my dark circles this morning, but I earned them for a good cause.
