Four hundred guests enjoyed delicious foods prepared by Tricia’s Catering of Lexington. The crowd favorites remained the same, even after eleven years of varying the menu, beef tenderloin and shrimp cocktail with homemade cocktail sauce. Cupcake shooters were the dessert favorite with a variety of sweet flavors consumed by the hundreds.
Guests enjoyed networking and catching up with friends on the Terrace, in the Loft and in the Davie, Forsyth and Yadkin rooms. Mobile bidding was a hit as guests were more comfortable in the second year of using their smart phones and iPads to compete for exciting silent auction prizes.
Band of Oz kept the dance floor full on the Terrace and Triad DJ had things rocking in the Loft for late night fun. Charlie Crenshaw was back by popular demand to handle the live auction, calling for bids in his pink jacket!
“It was a fun night and a great way to kick off summer,” said George Webb, foundation chairman. “We can’t think of a better way to raise more than $66,000 for Foundation operations and important Healthy Davie projects.”
“We are thankful for every sponsor, auction donation, beverage donation, and guest who purchased a ticket or bid on auction items,” said Jane Simpson, foundation president. “All of that support helps make the work we do possible!”
