Jilienne and I went to the 24kt fall dinner dance this past weekend, and it was a blast! My girl Erica Courtney was the Dance Chairperson and she looked gorgeous!! She had real peacock feathers on her dress, and (of course) stunning jewelry. We sat at Erica's table along with the talented and positive Paula Crevoshay and her lovely partner Martin Bell. Also at our table was Hayle Henning, from the Tanzanite foundation, who is very sweet. Rounding out our table was Debbie Hiss from Hearts on Fire and her husband. We got to see a lot of friends and make some new ones.

A roving photographer took snapshots of the attendees, which were distributed throughout the night (see our picture above,) and there were even a couple of caricature artists, so Jilienne and I had our cartoony portrait drawn! (See below.) We were served a four-course dinner while a great band played, and there was dancing later. There was also a silent auction set up outside the ballroom, with proceeds going to Jewelers for Children. It was a great night, but the highlight of the evening had to be listening to Herb Bridge, "Mr. Downtown", being honored with the Excellence in Service Award.

A few of my snapshots from the night:
