Cancer Ball 2009

This past Friday night we attended a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society.  I lost my dad to cancer in 1997 and like to support this charity when I can.  Supporting a charity, dressing up, dining and dancing – you can’t go wrong with that!

Many of my buddies from tennis attended.  Becky (in the black and brown) and I teach at the same school on the same team.


I love my dress.  I got it on sale for $27.00!!

Here are the guys all spiffed up.


I treated myself to an “up do” for the evening.  I love the way my hairdresser fixed it.  It still looked good the next morning!  The girl next to me is an old running friend that I hadn’t seen in a long time.  The room was freezing cold and I stayed wrapped up most of the evening.


I love my tennis friends on and off the court.  We have such a good time!


It was a fun night and a lot of money was raised for a very good cause.


  1. You look gorgeous!!! I was sitting here thinking that I love your dress, and then I read how much you spent. Amazing!

  2. Great cause! Great event and your dress is divine. So proud of you for treating yourself to an up do, especially since your dress is such a bargain. xo


  3. I had to stop wearing my $13 dress to parties because I couldn’t help myself….when anybody complimented me I automatically told them what it cost! So now everybody in town knows about my $13 dress! Your bargain is gorgeous!
