(Cool, we know)

Friday, May 9th, 2003

Our group posed a challenge to Alter Ego. We'd planned a big fundraiser. COULD this hip and heavy wonder band plug themselves into the out-of-doors AND a mid-century vintage theme? AND, after an evening of auctions, raffles, dinner and speeches, with appetities and pocketbooks spent, could the band get our (presumably) warm-weather guests to WANT to hit the gas pedal on the dance floor? The answer wasn't "geee, we'll try...". It was "Hey, no problem!" 
 
The event was The Best of Times Gala 2003, held May 3rd under-tent at Edison & Ford Winter Estates. Our 150 supporters of the Lee County Medical Society Alliance Foundation gathered in semi-formal fashion to enjoy 1940's cocktails and homecooked meat & potatoes (actually superb tenderloin, gourmet mashed potatoes served up in martini glasses, and a bunch of other fixin's). Anyway, you get the picture.
 
As for Alter Ego Challenge - they were victorious! After spinning some low-key tone-setting crooner discs during cocktails and dinner, they filled the night with high-volume and energy. We boogied and bumped, and even danced a little cheek-to-cheek under the the twirling mirror ball. Cool-down was required. So, carriages took guests downtown for complimenary nightcaps. And WE were victorious in our fundraising, too!
 
If ever you want to please a crowd, be sure the food and the band are FANtastic. Everything else is just icing on the cake! Thanks, Alter Ego!

Thank you so much for your support of the Venetian charity Ball 2003!  Your (participation) helped make our Ball a magical evening for some 400 attendees and raise over $50,000 to further our mission of assisting those with the greatest needs in our community.

In achieving national accreditation this year, we have further established our commiment ot provide a continuum of car that meets and /or exceeds national standards.  The need is great, but so is our energy and that of the many volunteers who make this comprehensive service delivery possible.  Every day over 600 people are helped. 

We look forward to continuing to keep you updated on our activities and hope you will join us again next year, as we celebrate our opportunities to help others.  Please let us know if we can be of assistance to you in the future.  

On behalf of all of us at Catholic Charities in Lee and Hendry/Glades counties, thank you again.

God bless,

Diane Barnes
Director, District II
Catholic Charities, Diocese of Venice, Inc.

PS.  The music was quite the highlight of the evening and the source of many compliments!
