Strike Out Breast Cancer

Well, we had our first annual Treva Hoffman Foundation, Strike Out Breast Cancer bowling event at TenDown Bowling Center last night. We had a good turnout. We had about 100 people, we would have liked more, but it was a great way to kick off our foundation. The picture below is our raffle table. That was a big hit, there were several things to bid on... a wine basket, a tan certificate, a boy basket with a football, tshirt and sweatshirt, a huge bottle of wine, a Pretty in Pink Breast Cancer basket, a gift certificate to ORegon Tool, plus some others I can't think of... We had bowling...we filled about 10 lanes, there were 4-5 people on each lane. There were call outs for fun giveaways, like sandwhiches from subway, Big Town Hero, Sizzler, Rite Aid, Manicures, T-shirts, hats, car washes. IT was fun. Everybody was a winner.
This is the food table, a prime rib in a special sauce, with some noodles, veggies, potatoes, fruit, rolls, dessert. WOW!!
We had a huge silent auction....a wedding dress from Memory Makers, a wedding cake from a private baker, bowling ball, shoes and bag, Sweet Liberty basket, ladies pampering basket, Fishing rod, Guided fishing trip, plus other things. IT was amazing. People were so generous. One couple decided right then to auction off up to 5 nights in their vacation home in Bend to the highest bidder!! That was fun, because I had never done a live auction, so it was a little goofy, but we got it done anyway.
There was dancing....Dad and daughter here, in their "expect miracles" shirts.
We had a blast. We got to talk to Treva on the phone and she was on speaker through the microphone to talk to the crowd. It was great. Hopefully, it will just keep getting bigger and better.
