Lucky 13 Gala

Rosemary Hedlund (Chair) and her committee, organized the LUCKY 13 GALA  held on Wednesday, January 30th.  AND IT WAS A HUGE SUCCESS.  Ticket sales was tremendous and seating was extended to the card room.  A delicious meal of pulled pork sandwiches, oriental salad, potato casserole and desserts were served.  Leisure World residents were very accommodating with their "silent" and "live" auction items to make a very exciting evening.  Pies, candy, bakery goods, artist items, state baskets - just too many items to list Individually.  Thanks to all who so graciously had a hand in this event.

From the beautiful decorated tables to the well attended Gala - all seem to be having a delightful evening...
Rosemary welcomed all to the event, and as the sign read - LUCKY 2013 was the results of the evening. 
The kitchen crew was prepared...
Bill Hedlund read off who the Lucky winners were and how much was bid for the items.
Our auctioneer Harold Monroe had a few "stories" to tell in-between bidding.

Mary Gainer and her committee did a super job of keeping up with the punch and wine, although a picture was not taken.  Our photographer Dick Connett was trying to keep up with the picture taking as well as selling 50/50 tickets.  (Winner of 50/50 was Helen Mott who so graciously gave back her share).  Everyone seem to enjoy the great evening.  Great bidding by the crowd, and a lot of happy "buyers" as the evening turned out great.
