Weekend Review: Frisco Family Services Gala 2016

This weekend we attended the FFS One Gala. I love this event 1. because of what it supports 2. It is a lot of fun. 

My mom was in charge of securing all of the donations this year and when they announced her name to recognize her for all her hard work my heart filled with happy tears, I'm so proud of her. The good thing about having a mom in charge is that she invited us to sit at her table. The other good thing about Molly is she isn't afraid to ask for help. She called up some of my friends on the phone and asked for their help to put together and wrap baskets. And in return She invited them to the gala.

 Note: I love a silent auction! Mainly because I love to win! Which is funny, because we rarely win anything!

 I'm so proud of my friend Pam and her J. Hilburn business! She submitted a basket this year and it sold on the BUY NOW option!!

What am I doing with my arm?.. I'm the most awkward person I know... 

 My parents.

 Aunt Laura and Uncle Ryan.

 Julie and Chad.

 Pam and Paxton.

We were served a six course meal and it was so delicious!

The tent was full. All the tables were sold! 550 tickets!

So proud of my mama.

Julie and I were super excited about the online bidding.
 I won 5 auction items but the real winner of the night was Lucy... a shopkin basket.

I also won a bounce house for a day and $100 costco giftcards and 20 free pizzas from pie five!

It was a fun night had by all.

If you are interested in donating an auction item next year please let me know! This is great for small businesses to get their name out there and to create new clients! ( Also, if you would like to attend next year start early on the table reservations because they sell out quickly!
