American Cancer Society Dinner

Last August, I attended a benefit for the American Cancer Society.  To raise money for the organization, they held an auction in which I donated a dinner and gift basket.  This dinner raised a considerable amount of money for the organization.  Last Saturday, I had the dinner party for the event.

The pomegranate martinis were a hit at the party.

The table was set Indian fabrics and accessories.

Each guest was presented with a menu card at their place setting just to let them know what to expect.

I used tiny elephant placecard holders and elephant salt and pepper shakers to carry the Indian theme.

 People had fun and it was all for a good cause.  I am proud to have hosted an event like this one.
