Monday evening Hubby and I went to a fundraising event at the new downtown ball stadium.
We are political conservatives, so we didn’t really agree with using taxpayer dollars to build this really grand new stadium downtown because it was replacing a perfectly good (but plainer and smaller) stadium outside the city limits that was only about 15 years old. But, now that it’s built, we certainly will do everything we can to support it and make it a success … including attending events that are hosted there like this one. And, even though we have never been big baseball fans, now that we’ve seen the stadium, I think we might even attend a game or two!
Anyway, the fundraising event was held in one of the reception areas in the complex and featured dining tables decorated by local businesses that would then be used for a luncheon the next day. The creativity is fun to see. (btw, the reason I was able to get Hubby to attend this cocktail party is because it was at the new stadium, and they gave tours!)
My nail tech, Tammy, is not only knowledgable in many things (see this post about her last week), but also she’s very creative. So, she has donated a table to this event for the last six years, and hers is always one of the most original. Well, this year she scored a first. She had “live animation”. She had ELVIS!
Tammy and “Elvis” (aka, her 15 year old son)
I love this picture of someone, who I’m pretty sure remembers the real Elvis, doing a cheek-pat,
but even better is the reaction of the women in the background!
Tammy’s table had a huge cutout of Elvis in the middle.
Tammy’s attention to detail always makes her table fun to see.
Tammy’s son may not have been around to see the real Elvis, but it didn’t take him long to adopt some of the “attitude”!
Good work, Tammy and “Elvis”!
You just never know who you might run into.
