The Community Counseling & Education Center celebrated its 25th anniversary with a gala fundraiser themed Dance with Us featuring a silent auction, dance exhibitions, catering by Elements Restaurant, and the rockin’ sounds of King Bee.
It was a busy night of timing management, silent auction coordination, and communication between the dancers, band & everyone else! Montecito Bank & Trust was kind enough to help with the silent auction “banking” portion of the evening so be sure to use them for your next silent auction – but be sure to talk to them beforehand to work out the logistics of picking up the bid sheets, where the items will be held for distribution, etc. A silent auction can get very messy, very quickly. However, this silent auction was managed by my dear friend, Sara Caputo, who is a professional organizer so this silent auction went off without a hitch!
King Bee is always amazing (TOTALLY recommend them for a dance party!) and the dance exhibitions really added a flare to the evening and pumped up the crowd. I emceed much of the evening which is always enjoyable for me and makes for efficient time management, as well.
I hope that the CCEC made a ton of money and I KNOW that everyone had a wonderful evening! Another successful event!
