Lights on the Lake 2014

Posted on November 18, 2014 by under Events.    

It’s been a few years since we’ve attended a Lights on the Lake launch party. The last Lights on the Lake launch party we attended was at Abode back in 2011. The event has gotten so much bigger since then. Last year and this year it was held at Murfin Stables, an amazing venue.

They really upped the ante this year with the upgraded dress code (cocktail attire was recommended) and lavish decorations. Check out these photos.

The opulent table setting made me feel very fancy.

We were assigned to table 22, Brian’s favorite number.

Meddys catered the event.

Here’s what was on the menu. The hors d’oeuvres consisted of creamy tomato soup, vegetarian lentil soup, baked pita, hummus, and fresh vegetables.

There were people walking around with trays of hummus and soup until dinner.

Salads and desserts were already at the tables but dinner was served buffet style. The salad was a delicious Mediterranean salad with salmon. It was very good.

For dinner we had chicken shawarma, beef shawarma, rice, and roasted vegetables.

Savories provided dessert. We had a couple of options: brownie bottom cheesecake and cherry cheesecake. Yummy!

There was a silent auction, my favorite thing to check out and do at these events. I didn’t win any of the items I bid on this time, though.

There was also a live auction. That’s something that I generally don’t participate it because I don’t have as much money at my disposal as other event guests. Live auction items usually go for thousands of dollars.

Untitled

At this event, however, there were a couple of things that went for just $900 so that was a pretty good deal. One of the most successful auction items was this black goldendoodle puppy that went for $3500.

She’s going to be one spoiled puppy!

There was also a wine pull and signature cocktails for sale for people like me who weren’t keen on the drink selections at the open bar. For $30 I got a signature drink with a commemorative champagne flute and $5 refills.

Brian and I got to play with the TapSnap photo booth.

We took a group photo of our table also.

Brian and I had such a great time. Brian will say he still prefers Brew Ha-Ha but, overall, Lights on the Lake is a really enjoyable fundraising event. It also benefits a great cause – Heartspring Pediatric Services. I highly encourage you all to support the organization and participate in the event next year.

Also, remember to check out Lights on the Lake this year. It’s one of the most amazing Christmas light displays in here in Wichita.
