2004 SEAs Dinner and Auctions

Sharon spent the morning serving as a wedding coordinator for another wedding at Good Shepherd. The wedding started at 9:30 a.m. in the morning! This is the fourth wedding that she has done. Sharon did her first wedding in June of 2003, the second in September of 2003 and the third in October of 2003.

Saturday night, we attended the St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic School Dinner and auctions. On the way to the dinner, we joined a group of parents from the school at Kathleen and Tim Murphy's house for drinks and appetizers. This is another six degrees of separation story; Kathleen's brother [Pat Foy] is married to Kristie Foy, a good friend of Sharon's.

Sharon bid on a number of items at the silent auction before dinner and had the winning bid on a couple of items. At dinner, we sat with an interesting group including the CFO for the Diocese of Sacramento and his wife who have a kid in the afternoon kindergarten, a helicopter pilot for the Sacramento County Sheriffs and his wife who is also a sheriff and a supply chain consultant from Deloitte who had recently worked for Disney. I made a couple of attempts to bid in the live auction, but the prices got out of our spending limits pretty quickly!
