The fundraiser was last night. It was incredible. First, I want to say to anyone who reads this that was there, THANK YOU. My expectations were totally exceeded, any fears I had came to nothing. Almost every item in the silent auction was sold, raising nearly $700. And between my tips and the door prize tickets, my total take was almost $1000. I was just hoping for $500! So I am very excited. And although my computer is dead so I can’t check my total just yet, I think it’s close to $2200, if not more. Yay!
So many people were there. I was thinking about it this morning: there were people representing almost every phase of my life. Elementary school, high school, college, the neighborhood, Barnes & Noble, GPA, friends from Baton Rouge, so many people. It was so much fun! I was behind the bar most of the time so I couldn’t talk to everyone as much as I would have liked to. I was running on pure adrenaline. Amazing.
So the next fundraiser, which will be more low-key and hopefully easier to plan, will be on August 10. It’ll be a pub quiz night. I’m not sure if we’re going to sell tickets to get in, or how the money will be made, but it’ll be fun.
Tonight is the second episode of Sex & the City. woo!
