Last night we were invited as VIP guests to the March of Dimes Chef Event. Local chefs make one of their signature dishes and we all get to eat them :) There was also a silent auction and a live auction. I actually won two things in the silent auction!
I won a tapestry from a local artist, Liz Lemon
It's purple and teal!! I can't wait to add it to my craft/thinking area!

And I won a gift basket from Skyline Catering, which I bid on because we know and respect Ernie (the owner) as he did an AMAZING job at our wedding! (http://www.skylinecatering.com/)
I am waiting to see if there are any pictures from the event, I will post if there are!
Patrick and I were introduced to the crowd and asked to stand while everyone cheered us on for our efforts. It was nice, but also bittersweet.
You all know the reason why we are supporters of MOD, but it can at a great cost. So sometimes it's hard going to those events.
I also learned that the date has been set for Milwaukee's walk and it's April 27th!!! (I am STILL trying to get them to move it into May the following years! Milwaukee is COLD still in April!)
We will be hosting a kick off/silent auction party TBD sometime in Jan/Feb.
