The AWA put on a really nice event at the Grand Hyatt, complete with live music throughout dinner from a local high school band (ah, that brought back memories). We were even seated next to a couple at dinner who are from Great Falls, VA and who just had a daughter graduate from UVA. As you might guess the conversation topics with Matt were endless.
The only challenge during these fund raising events is trying to keep Matt's competitive nature at bay. There was also a silent auction at this event and Matt skimmed the prizes when we came in. I should have known that something was up when he disappeared from the table at the end of night. The next time I found him he was carrying a 3 1/2 ft. tall vase. Of course. But I really couldn't get too mad, because as soon as we got home he placed on a built-in shelf in our living room that I haven't been able to successfully fill for one year. It looks like his instincts were spot on - this time. A fiance with an eye for interior design and helping out a great cause? That is really a combination to look for.
I can't imagine the damage you'll do if you ever stumble into a shoe auction. Oh, the humanity.
