OK….It’s not what you are thinking from the title….but maybe I hooked you?
Yesterday I wrote about party planning. Today I’m looking back on a pretty spectacular event that this family of party planners pulled off.
We spent the day cooking, running to the store for forgotten items, setting tables, setting up the food, rehearsing trivia questions, and getting ready for our guests. All of this to hopefully raise some money for the high school scholarship I started four years ago in my mom’s name.
At 5:00 pm, people started flowing in. They socialized, and I introduced friends from all parts of my life to one another. People grabbed a snack and something to drink and gathered with a team for a night of trivia. As I asked each question, the teams would burst into conversation: Some so serious, huddled around the answer sheet, whispering and jotting notes to each other, then writing down the answer. Others giggling hysterically when they weren’t sure of the answers and coming up with funny responses instead. My daughter then gathering the sheets and sharing the standings….”In last place, but very close to the next team, is Team #3!” Team #3 members are seen high-fiving each other. Do they know they are losing? Yes, they do, but they are having such fun doing it!
We played trivia for about an hour and a half. Then we awarded prizes to the winning team, and declared the night a huge success.
People gathered for a great cause.
People met new people.
People spent time with old friends.
Oh What a Night!
