Hello All. It has been TOO LONG...but I wanted to share why I have been MIA for the past week.
For the past 3 years I have been hosting a parents' night out event for my children's elementary school PTO (Parent Teacher Organization). The previous two years we hosted a wine tasting event - fun - but it was time for a change. After pondering our options, the committee decided on Comedy Night!
I searched for a local comedian and found one who came highly recommended. She was awesome, hysterical and made the night complete. Thanks, Linda Belt.
We had a variety of raffle and silent auction prizes ~ that is where we make most of our money. The best auction items are the kids artwork. I won the fish pictured below, which was created by my daughter's 4th grade class. She wanted me to win it since the previous year I won a cookie jar that her brother's class created. There was music, talking, food, drinking and laughing all for $25. The night was a huge success!
The pitchers, platter and cookie jar in the pictures above and below are created using the
children's fingerprints. The cookie jar below is similar to the one I won last year!
Thank you to all my committee members who helped make the event fun and successful - a good time had by all who attended . I could not have done it without you! We are going out with a bang! (p.s. for those of you who are reading this, I am not chairing the event next year. Not sure if anyone will take on this enormous task).
