From the desk of Gabe Sapolsky:
2013 has come to a close for Dragon Gate USA and EVOLVE since the last show of the calendar year was DGUSA Freedom Fight 2013 on November 17th.

In conjunction with #GivingTuesday, Susan G. Komen Orange County® today debuted its second holiday jingle campaign on YouTube (http://ow.ly/rnZOW) to help raise funds for life-saving mammograms.

With a new song and campaign, Komen Orange County is hoping to match or exceed those efforts in 2013.
