It was fun! But I honestly can't say much for the food. We ahd like 5 choices to choose from at "The Old Spaghetti Factory" In Portland. robert and I chose Spaghetti w/meat sauce. It came with salad that had pre-dressing and it tasted like that good seasons kind you make in a cruet at home. Ashley had Chicken Alfredo and I tried hers and it was pretty good. I also feel it was over priced at $15.00 a person. We won't be eating out anytime soon there. The service was excellent though.
It was a full house. Every table was full. there were even people standing. We did pretty good with the auction, too.
People who ahd vision had to eat their meal with glasses like these on. uide dogs glued to the lenses. this is my lovely Ashley.
The most expensive item was tickets to a symphony show at a threater i think that went for $300.00 and there was a nice hand painted paddle donated by Larry who is an artist and on my team. $200.00, and a picture he donated for 150.00. Robert outbid everyone on my basket so there are lots of gift cards in there that we got and he paid $60.00 on that and it is well over a $100.00 value.
I was asked to come up front and talk about what I collected and got them a laughing with my choosey words. Mei Wong was the Auctioneer.
She hugged me when I got up front and I greeted her with "Mei, your bra is apdded!" I explained what i ahd gathered together for my night. A contributon from Portlands locala rtist and Roberts daughter Vanessa Lee 's fancy piece of art a cerramic candy dish went for $65.00, a double fifth paddle bag for a paddle, a orange and a black large towels I said great for your kinky haloween costumes, a new brita water pitcher with 2 filters, a scented candle, 2 gift cards from subway sandwiches, a gift card from Red Robin Restaurant, a gift card from Target, 2 certificates for free whole pies from Shari's. I did the most work. But i got all that back! Oh and a free haircut, blow dry and style at a shop.
I'm waiting to hear how we did with the monies!
