The 2007 Allandale Masquerade Ball Best Costume Winner! – Ami McChesney

If you couldn’t make it to the Allandale Masquerade Ball and Silent Auction Saturday night here it is in pictures.

Unfortunately it’s not video so you don’t get to hear the music from the Leroi Brothers – the perfect party band, or a scratch and sniff so you don’t get the aromas from the wonderful food prepared and served by Russell’s Bakery, or an interactive so you don’t get to dance. Pictures are the best we could do so you will just have to come to next year’s Ball for the full experience. The events team lead by Laura Slaughter did a fantastic job organizing this year’s Masquerade Ball and the Caswell House was the ideal venue.

There were over 30 items donated to the silent auction from various individuals and local businesses. The items ranged from jewelry to tango lessons to dining gift certificates to bar stools to pool time at Slick Willies.   People who participated in the auction benefited from some really good deals. Many thanks to the contributors and to Marlene Meador who took the lead organizing the Silent Auction.
