2012 SEAS Dinner and Auction

Sharon and I went to the St. Elizabeth Ann Seton School dinner and auction. This is one of the main fund raisers for Jack's school. It is the thirteenth year that they have held the event and the tenth year that we have attended [2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011].

It is probably the last year that we will attend the event. With Jack moving on to high school in the fall and the move to Carmichael looming, our ties to the parish are fraying. I will miss SEAS and Good Shepherd. It has come to feel like a small town over the last ten years.

Two long tables were set-up for the eighth grade parents. We sat across from the Romeros and near the Laskins; both of their boys will be going to Jesuit with Jack next year.

The number of silent and live auction items seemed lower than any year that we have been. I half-heartedly bid on a couple of live auction items, but did not win anything.

The event finished with a Johnny Cash tribute band. The singer sounded surprisingly like Johnny Cash!
