Blossom Ball 2018 - Padma Lakshmi Welcome

- Good evening. And welcome to the ninth annual Blossom Ball. I'm Padma Lakshmi, I'm a co-founder here at the Endometriosis Foundation of America, and I'm so sorry that I can't be with you all tonight. My heart is with you in this room. This is the first time I've missed the Blossom Ball, and I wanna thank my board and all of the people who worked so hard on making tonight the beautiful and worth event that it is. Tonight you're gonna hear lots of stories. You're gonna hear from lots of women. You're gonna hear about a disease that you can help treat. With your volunteer work, with your donations, and just with you helping us spread awareness. So thank you and enjoy yourself tonight.
