The Scholarship Fundraiser Gala was awesome!
As I posted in my blog comparing this March with last March, it was a lot colder this year so a bit hard to decide what to wear to the event. I had this cute tunic-top that I decided would work for the event, once again bypassing my cute and elegant LBD.
I think I prefer the artsy look.
And my son may have just turned 40, but I'm holding my own thank you very much.
That auction committee did an awesome job transforming a run-down college gym into a lovely venue for the affair, deciding to keep an industrial look to the decor.
These looked especially nice lit up as the evening progressed.
Vintage school photos also graced the tables. This on has one of my sons in it.
The food was fabulous! I had saag paneer, naan, chick peas, and chutney for dinner. Yum!
My dollhouse was on display in the silent auction room so it could be viewed, but this year the auction committee decided to put it in the live auction instead. So after being out for people to see, it was moved to the live auction room. I felt really shy and anxious about it being in the live auction, but it ended up being kind of fun. The auctioneer emphasized the time and love a teacher from the school put into it. And it looked sweet up on the auction block.
I had several people tell me they were disappointed not to win it, so maybe (maybe) I'll do another build next year.
