And this is my wonderful and handsome father in law who came to the event with us
The Ball was to support our states Children Shelter. The night starts off by bidding in a silent auction for stuff that has been donated by companies to help raise money for the shelter. Then there is a sit down dinner and a live auction. The rest of the night they have a band play for everyones enjoyment and for dancing.
We got to sit with the other 2 finalists and their dates. We had a great time! Funny story...we were eating and talking when someone says that it smells like a campfire. Well come to find out that one of our centerpiece candles was catching the floral arrangement on fire. Then not to long after that someone went to get some bread and a napkin lands on the candle and bursts into flames. We were frozen in shock when one of the girls thinks to throw a glass of water on it. We sure caught everyones attention!!
Here is a picture of Daniel and his friend Wade singing Can't You See by Marshall Tucker Band. They did SO good!! I was so proud of them. The other two finalist were amazing too!
Every table was given an electronic remote to vote with. The thing is that the table would have to come to an agreement and get one vote per table. Well Daniel and another guy tied for first place! Then they did a second vote and Daniel and Wade ended up in second place. It was very exciting!
Here is Daniel and his dad enjoying the night
