Silent Auction- Mardi Gras Style

Tonight was the 82nd Airborne Division Silent Auction. I attended this event 2 years ago and had a great time. The theme this year was Mardi Gras and it was amazing!! Each coffee group provided 3-4 gift baskets with a different theme. It was a great turn out, the first hour was the Silent part (I had my eye on a spa basket) and then we got into the Live Auction! Wow some women came to spend money and got a lot of use out of these:

Our awesome paddles!!

I believe overall a lot of money was raised tonight, considering 2 items went for over $400!!

Half way through the live auction they started announcing the winners of the silent auction. I was really hoping I won, once they got to the basket I wanted I was excited when they called my number!! Here is my basket:

 Here is what is included:
$150 gift certificate to the Renaissance Day Spa
A TON of Mary Kay products!!
I am super excited to enjoy it! It was a great time hanging out with all the wonderful ladies of the Black Falcons.

*I wanted to update you all on my Mom. 2 weeks ago she wasn't able to have treatment because her white blood cell count was too low. Thankfully yesterday her count was back up where it should be and she got her treatment. She is doing well and staying strong.
