Final Update

August 30, 2009

Auction Night 2008 was a great event. The blog was fun to do but now it’s time to move on. The school has adopted a different fund raising event and my focus is now on redesigning and managing the primary school website. Thanks to everyone who’s supported the event and the blog. It’s been fun.

At the request of participants and to protect the privacy of parents, the photos from the event have been archived and removed from public access.

The Long Wait…

What an Event!

February 10, 2008

It was an awesome evening out at Auction Night 2008 – Strawberry Night Fever. As we left the sitter and approached Mill Valley Community Center we spotted the lights emanating from the parking lot, directing us to our big event. It was amazing to see so many people decked out in full seventies dress. Everyone looked fabulous! From sexy short dresses and long go-go boots to groovy tie dye shirts and way out hair. There were peace signs and disco balls adorning our party goers and smiles everywhere. You had to wonder how seventies fashion went out of style when everyone looked this good!
