The Live Auction was entertaining and went over very well! The profits made went to Hand In Paw, and during the Auction, they had a very special presentation fr
om a child who is so beautifully affected by Hand in Paw.
The room was beautifully set, covered in black and gold
accents to add just the right amount of shine. The space used for dinner and the Live Auction was Beeson Hall, which is perfect for large events such as this one. The room is so open and is set as a blank canvas for true creativity to complete it.
