House is in the Bag

By overwhelming majority, fans on Facebook and Blogger chose the pink beaded Lilly Pulitzer Kaya dress for last night's charity event.  My friend Leesa and I are both rocking our Lilly for the House is in the Bag, a benefit for Habitat for Humanity.

The event was a fabulous opportunity to socialize and shop for a good cause.  We had a large group of almost a dozen ladies!  It's a fun girls night out, although there were a few gentlemen in attendance.  100% of the proceeds help local families build their houses!  I love it that all of the money stays in the community.

The decor of the event was fun and colorful!

We enjoyed delicious food and drinks as we sipped and shopped the silent auction, raffle, and grab bag items.  I especially loved the crab dip and the cupcakes!  I chose a few grab bags for the minnies and they were tickled when they saw their goodies this morning.  

Another popular activity was a treasure box.  Ladies purchased keys and crossed their fingers as they tried the key in the lock of a treasure chest that contained diamond jewelry and Tiffany necklaces.  

Many ladies had their hair woven into original and beautiful braids at the Braiding Bar from Trinity Salon and Spa.  

The highlight of the evening was the Live Auction, led by the Singing Auctioneer, Anne-Lynn Gross.  Bags from Louis Vuitton, Kate Spade, See by Chloe, Longchamps, and more dazzled the audience.  As if the bags were not enough incentive to bid, many of them contained extra goodies, gift certificates, or items.  I had my eye on a bag with an overnight stay to Nemacolin until I lost a bidding war, started by my friend!  

It was a lovely evening for a wonderful cause and I'm already looking forward to next year's event!
