a gala!

You know how the people on tv are always going to charity events?  They get all super swank dressed up and then drama ensues!

Those shows are really all the experience I’ve had in the realm of charity events, so I couldn’t help but expect it to kind of be like that.

But when I attended the 40th Anniversary Gala for Curry Senior Center, there was no Mischa Barton and no Blake Lively.  No tuxedos.  There was an auction, but the prizes were not bachelors.

Mostly, it was like a wedding reception, one in which you don’t really know the people and that no one does any cheesy line dancing.

fundraising gala!












There was cheese and there was fizzy wine, so it definitely met the basic maggie requirements.

I had a little table, full of my own people.

David and Nina













And there were very, very nice views.

Downtown SF and the Bay Bridge












North Beach and the Golden Gate












I’ve never coughed up any significant funding to a charity before and I’ve certainly never attended anyone’s “gala” before.  The experience probably won’t ever inspire a show on the CW, but it was alright.

And like I said, there was cheese….
