Happy New Year's to everyone! It's Going to be a Good Year! It's Going to be a Good Year! It's Going to be a Good Year! Yea!

Well we survived the big Gala. It actually was a lot of fun and I think we actually may have made some money. We had lots of people that called the last day and probably had more people this year than last! The auction items went good and every one had a good time.

The Band was very good.... and yes Sue - Blondie keep his clothes on. The dance floor was full pretty much from 10:30 till midnight. But they did not have that HUGE following that I was worried about but a good crowd. I'll post pictures a little later.

That's good news, Ann! I've been wondering how it went last night and am relieved that there was no clash of That band sounded great in the one song I heard.
The important thing is that you made some money and I hope it's enough for what you need to accomplish. I'll look forward to seeing your pictures. Congratulations on a job well done!

Thanks everyone for checking in! We should be able to get a handle on the final expense total and a tally of all money collected by the end of next week. I'm thinking that we MAY have come close to tying last year's total! whooohooo!

Angie ^i^ said...

Ann, in this economy tying last years total would be a huge accomplishment! I look forward to hearing the final results!

Congratulations again!!

Ann said...

Angie- You are so right! If we come close I will be very happy. Our organization has been very blessed to have survived up to now... and I know it was the prayers offered by so many that made the evening a success.

I will be really glad to hear the final numbers and hopefully breath a sigh of relief!
