Boy of boy, was it ever a busy weekend! Mommy went off and left me at home Saturday for 12 whole hours. I was mad at her for leaving me at home all day and not letting me be a model in the fashion show but I forgave her because Sunday I got to stay at Aunt Judy's house with the boys while they went to help stuff envelopes for the Halloweener Party. Why did it take so long for her to come home? After the benefit, she and my Aunt Pam went to their cousin, Veta Nell's 80th birthday party and then they went to the hospital to visit their cousin, Bennie, who is having open heart surgery on Wednesday. Since I didn't get to go to the benefit, I'm gonna let Mommy tell you about it and show you lots of pictures .
The Benefit was held in the Country Club at April Sound on Lake Conroe. It included lunch, a live and silent auction, entertainment, a raffle and door prizes. I didn't win anything but I did bring home a pretty ribbon, that was on the package somebody at our table won. There were 10 settings at each table and there were 22 tables, all full, so there were a lot of people there & at 40.00 a head, they made they made $8800.00 just on tickets. Fantastic!!
First off, there was the luncheon with Chicken and Artichoke Hot Pasta with Cream Sauce, Mini-Salad Tower, rolls and tea.
But the dessert was to die for. They called it a Bow Woo Brownie.
After lunch was the entertainment. Here is the act. The girls are Hannah & Abby. The dog is Missy, a gorgeous long haired dachshund. They sang "GOD AND DOG" and Missy was the featured dog. Recently we posted a link to the song, so for those you who missed it I have added the link to this post.
There was a silent auction with lots of doggie things as well. I bet on two things for Mona, a basket of toys and one with 2 really cute shirts.
I also bet on a little pig cookie jar for myself.
Next was the fashion show. I went to see doggies not Divas, so sorry there are no pictures of the Divas. The lighting was not every good for picture taking but I think you will get the idea. But first there was a special little girl named Molly, who's Mommy and Daddy were at our table, friends of cousin Tanna. The trill of the whole affair for me was being able to hold this sweetie and hear her rescue story.
Molly, Mom & Dad.
