A night for Charity

Last night Debi and I attended the 7th Annual Columbia Montessori School Trivia Night Fundraiser and Silent Auction as the guests of Mike and Stephanie Flagg.

It was a great time (although we came in 5th…..who knew Missouri Trivia would be so hard?) for an excellent cause, especially when you consider the loot at the Silent Auction. 

One basket that Debi picked out and won is the crux of this posting.  Everyone should attend these types of events when possible, not only to help give back to their communities, but because you never know what is going to be in the auctions or how much they will go for.

Case in Point…….The “Wine Basket”

From Pier 1-

  • Four Stone Coasters
  • Four Wine Glasses
  • Wine Markers
  • Cheese Knife Set
  • Cheese Course Porcelain Plate Set

From HyVee (we think)

That’s quite a haul, especially considering we go it for around $150.

We also bid on and won a tasting for 10 and wine tour of Les Bourgeois Vineyards.

Throw in the Kids books and games for James and it was a pretty productive night for us……but let’s not forget it all goes to Charity.

I wanted to thank Mike and Steph for inviting us….we’ll have to return the favor real soon.

Remember everyone, help out your local charities… never know what you will get :)



  1. Holy Crap. For $150 it sounds like you came out ahead.

  2. I stand corrected, Debi told me the Booze Basket was on only $ pays to go to Charity Events
