Remember Pandora's Chest?
Well, according to the
Pandora opened her chest
releasing all the evils of the world....
MAY NOT KNOW
is that when she closed it she left
Where did the HOPE go?
Well, at our school fund raiser
that HOPE went right into
these Chinese take-out boxes.
What are you HOPING for?
Well, you are HOPING you win
MyHero and I sold the boxes for $15 each.
There were only 50 boxes so you had a
one in 50 chance of winning a Pandora piece.
Last year it was a bracelet.
This year it was a Pandora watch valued
Inside each box were gift certificates
worth at least $10-
if you didn't win the watch.
The boxes were left on the table
until all were sold and then all
opened at the same time while
the emcee made the announcement
of the winner.
My daughter, Ms,T, did a
organizing the school benefit.
A World Tour
They sold food representing each country.
Look where our booth was...
And it was on St. Patrick's Day to boot!
This was Ms T's second year heading it up.
Last year was the largest fund-raiser
they ever had.
We won't know how much this one
raised for a couple of days.
There were all kinds of donated gifts
for silent auctions.
There was a live auction later.
Look at this!
It's a rather large canvas.
SweetCheeks' class made it.
it is made of their thumb prints.
SweetCheeks thumb print is red.
This sold at the live auction part
for almost $1400!
(names are blurred on purpose for the blog)
A great night all the way around.
Well, MyHero thought he was going to
He had his chapstick ready to go...
AND his breath mints.
He was a little disappointed that
they put him the Pandora's Box area.
Too bad, buddy!
There's always next year...
maybe you will have your
own booth then.
Meanwhile- you can practice
I'll be in the booth on your
right selling these....
Sign up now, ladies...
you know how long those
lines can get......
