It was an all around great combination! We got to snack on cupcakes from our new favorite bakery, Sugar Daddy's, and bid on great prizes for charity. Things got a bit heated as the night went on, as Matt had his eye on one prize - tickets to the Porche new model test drive at the Dubai Raceway. It is an event run by Porche where they bring all there new models to the race track and let people test drive them while giving out driving lessons. Apparently, tickets go to VVIPs only and are not for sale, so needless to say there was heightened interest on this one! After a fierce bidding war which lasted until 2:00am, Matt is the proud owner of 3 tickets to the track! He and the final bidder when for a split of the 5 tickets, before they both lost their shirts!
Of course I didn't want to miss out on the fun, or donating to a good cause, so I found an item to bid on too. The chance to have a hat custom designed to wear to the World Cup races. This year it falls on my birthday, so I wanted to have an extra special outfit! Luckily the couture hat world doesn't have a ton of affectionatos, so the bidding wasn't too steep and I got a great deal. There was some last minute competition but luckily I came out victorious!
(We all donated jars of Nutella to send to the kiddies in Gaza.)
