As the week draws to a close I find myself waiting for that magic moment when you can sit back, look around, twiddle your thumbs, sigh and think about how you possibly managed to find five minutes with absolutely nothing to do! (That moment does exist...right?)
Last Friday evening we took part in the Grande Prairie Sunrise Rotary's 1st Annual Scare Crow Festival! The evening was filled with great food, humor, flowing beverages, entertainment and fun. The live auction was as entertaining as the band, and the hillbilly with the banjo! We had a great time and the evening appeared to be a huge success, with over 200 people out to show their support. Our own scarecrow entry was awarded first prize in the Celebrity category! Way to go "Scaryl Crow"! We also made a couple new "friends" who are on display in SIPPS Lounge and will be joining the festivities on Halloween night. Make sure you come out and meet "Sonny & Cher Crow"!
Saturday night found us at the 12th Annual Nitehawk Comedy Night Fundraiser! What a great event! A big thank you to the staff at Nitehawk for the amazing work they put into the evening and for the tickets! My guess is that approximately 400 people enjoyed the night! The food was incredible, the silent auction items were awesome, and the entertainment, featuring Canadian Comedian Howie Miller as the headliner, was perfect! The comedians were so thrilled with their rooms (provided by us) that they raved about them during their show! We are looking forward to next year!
Tomorrow night brings the "Weekend to End Breast Cancer" fundraiser. We are looking forward to joining our friends once again to enjoy a great meal and silent auction to lend our support to another great cause. (Next week I will be looking for diet and financial advice, as I will be fat and broke from all of these events!)
Tickets are going fast for the "Ghoulish Gala" being held Halloween night in SIPPS Lounge! Make sure you don't miss out! The evening is promising to be the classiest party in town! Prizes include a ski weekend for 2 for the "Best Couple" costume, a beer fridge, and much more! Doors are open early but the DJ starts at 8pm! Hope to see you all there! (I will be the "invisible" girl)
So as your week draws to a close...I wish you at least one "Magic Moment" this weekend. And when you do finally sink into a chair with that sigh, I hope you recall that it is only 62 days till Christmas! Have you started your shopping yet? Are your lights up? Have you bought your cards yet...?
