On Friday evening, my girlfriend Nicole and I attended the PTA social event of the year - a tricky tray held annually to help fund scholarships and grants for our township public schools. For $50 bucks, you get to have a nice dinner at a nearby manor and then have the privilege of spending the rest of your hard earned cash trying to win all the cool stuff. In attendance were close to seven hundred women. Last year this same tricky tray brought in over $60,000 in one evening!
Some of the items which were raffled were three coach bags, one Prada bag, a Tiffany necklace, some Brighton jewelry, a Phillips home theater system, various i-pods, a vacation to Marco Island Florida and a ton of other stuff. My eyes glazed over for the two items that I so desperately wanted to win - this Coach bag and the cuisenart grind and brew coffee maker.
I was crushed when my stupid number didn't even come anywhere close to being a winner. Of course, that won't stop me from going back next year. You know, so then I can win the NEWEST Coach bag.
