22nd Annual Wichita Heart Ball

Brian and I had a great time at the Heart Ball last night.

One of these days we’ll get use to the lavish opulence of this event.

Untitled

This is our third year attending and it just keeps getting better and better.

Untitled

I loved this year’s event lighting. They had these charming chandeliers all over the place. It all looked so luxe and extravagant.

Untitled

This isn’t a very flattering photo but I have to share it with you so you can see the very fancy chandelier behind us.

Here’s another selfie early in the evening. One that looks somewhat normal.

We had trouble filling our table because of the late notice. I actually didn’t know we had a table until the week of the event. That’s why mom and dad got to go this year. By Wednesday Brian and I were the only ones confirmed, so I asked Lacie if mom and dad could come so that Brian and I wouldn’t be by ourselves at our table.

Speaking of our table, Moore Flowers did a great job on the table centerpieces. I loved the one they had at our table. If I were to have an event, I would totally hire them. The place looked great and the decor went really well with the theme.

Isaac and Crystal attended again this year. I’m glad Crystal convinced Isaac to attend. That brought our count to six people.

Untitled

Misty and Amy and James and his wife attended as well so we actually managed to fill the table. Impressive on such short notice.

Untitled

Dinner was pretty good. We enjoyed the salad and the main course (pictured above). They had two dessert options this year even though only the vanilla bean creme brûlée was published in the program. The other dessert was a very rich chocolate cake.

I ran into a few familiar faces. Pictured below is Zoe, my favorite Group Power instructor at Genesis Health Clubs. She was there with EagleMed. Two of my classmates from Leadership Wichita were also at the event: Jennifer with Grant Thornton and Marc who is on the local AHA board.

Untitled

We had a little fun during the live auction. Luckily there were no puppies or we would have been in trouble. LOL.

Untitled

I was forbidden from bidding on anything but I couldn’t help myself. I managed to win one of the silent auction items that I bid on that evening: a shopping party at Chic Street Boutique. I can’t wait to set it up!

Untitled

I wish we could have stayed because I love The Source. They’ve performed several times at the annual Filipino ball.

Untitled

We pretty much just stayed long enough to claim our silent auction prize. We even skipped the chocolate fountain. What’s wrong with us? LOL.

If we have the opportunity to attend again next year (which I’m hoping that it won’t be last minute so I’ll have a chance to plan a better outfit) I need to remember to wear my comfortable dancing shoes.

Here are pictures from the last couple of years:
