And it's a wrap!

Monday, November 18, 2013

Aaah. Sleep, beautiful sleep. So loved after a crazy week!

Saturday night went off without a hitch. We were prepared and ready, and it was a wonderful night!

The day started at R&T's house, getting auction items together, making sure name tags were set, etc. But we also spent a lot of time wondering if we were missing anything since it seemed too easy. That's the beauty of an experienced team - everything was done ahead of time!

We packed the cars and headed to the venue. Queue running around setting up tables, making sure presentations were running properly, etc. It wasn't long before I realized it was time to get dressed!

Doors opened at 6:30 and people were ready! Happy faces as people found their seats, greeted friends, and had a lovely time. This included FIVE puppies-in-training! Wow! So adorable! It's always fun to follow the progress of the Guide Dogs in Training from when we first meet them as tiny pups to when they get their assignments and go to their forever homes.

Dinner was great, I even got to sit and chat with some people for a while. The auction ran smoothly and everyone loved the items. Everything sold very well and we are fortunate to have made a good deal of money to continue our work!

Everything wrapped up around 11, and then the scramble to get the room cleaned up and packed before heading home.

It was a long day, but well worth all the work to see everyone happy and having fun, and supporting such a great cause!

oh... and I suppose you all want to see the dress. ;) Here you go:
