First I have to say that everybody looks good in the color pink. I know some people think they don't have the right complexions for it, but honestly, everyone looked fabulous in their pink clothes, men and women alike. It was a sea of pink and a beautiful sight.
Second, people are very generous. I am always impressed with the willingness of folks to buy raffle tickets and bid on auction items. When they know where the money is going, and it's a local charity, they are more than willing to open their wallets.
People love to see each other. And they truly like each other. Seeing friends greet friends, and strangers looking delighted to meet new people, gives me hope for the world.
And most importantly, the women who work to put this party on are amazing. This is a small group of friends, not all of whom knew each other to start with, who decided to join forces to create an event with the sole purpose of raising money for local charities. We have very few meetings because we are all busy people with complicated lives. But we go out and network within our circle of influence and get donations from a very generous community, resulting in a raffle and a silent auction that is second to none. I am privileged to know every one of them.
It was a great night. And we're already thinking about next year....
