Like most of you, I love going to events, parties, weddings, you name it, I love attending and I love this city which is the reason for starting this blog.
Maybe it has something to do with my love of details at events; you know, those tiny little things you probably didn't even notice while you were sipping your martini or trying to get that girl or guy's number.
Well, me on the other hand..I noticed those cute favors at the door, the centerpieces, the linens, the mints in the bathroom that coordinated with the theme of the event. - yes, there was actually a theme at that last shindig you attended. It wasn't that some of the guests decided to break out their halloween costumes from OU Halloween 1995 - it was a theme.
Or maybe it's the fact that I love seeing "Who's who in Columbus", getting photos taken, or more importantly donating to a great cause.
Which in my case, I better be careful, because I'm donating money like I'm Warren Buffett (I wish I was and could donate half of my billionaire status to charity) but I'm not. So, I try to give as much as I can.
Columbus has so many great events, especially in the summer. Whether it's the festivals, wine tastings, music series, charity events -- Columbus has the one for you.
I recently went to the Woody Hayes Kick off event where I had the pleasure of meeting the handsome and the one and only Kirk Herbstreit. Yes, ladies, he really is that gorgeous up close. This event was filled with celebrity status...or should I say local Columbus Socialite status...A number of former OSU athletes, Blue Jacket players and top executives.
Nationwide Children's Hospital and the Development Board did a fantastic job at coordinating this event. There were many items to bid on at the silent auction. My dear friend Stephanie took home a number of great movie packages with signed autographs from the CW stars. Not to mention, that even Columbus' own CW "star" was in attendance this evening.
There were also different summer themed drinks including a pineapple whip cream number, which was basically heaven in your mouth and inches on your waist...and of course the norm - wine and beer.
The food was a little on the skimpy side, but they made up for it later in the evening when the cooking staff must have went on steroids, when trays and trays of food began pouring out of the kitchen.
Overall, this was a great event and I heard the annual golf tournament the next day was a lot of fun and raised a great amount of money....I guess to sum this one up, it's good to see the local Socialites and "celebrities" donning their Sunday's best and partying for a good cause.
