2013 American Cancer Society Gala

Saturday night, I attended my 4th American Cancer Society Annual Gala event, and this happened to be my 2nd year as planning committee member.

Gala 2010 – Celebration of Life
Gala 2011 – A Night in Tuscany
Gala 2012 – Candles & Cocktails

Our 2013 theme played off of last year’s Candles and Cocktails theme with the subtitle, A Birthday Under the Big Top!

My husband and I got all spiffed up and really enjoyed our evening!

Bows made out of tickets! Too cute!

One of the most popular parts of the evening – the funnel cake station!

Delicious food!

Of course the main goal of the night was to fundraise for cancer research and have a good time while doing so – mission accomplished!

We also decided to take a few pictures by the photo booth!

My husband is a bit ridiculous at times.

We make quite a crew!

Bottoms Up was our evening entertainment. They are a band from New Orleans and totally rocked the house!
