EWI Trivia Night

Posted on April 14, 2010 by under Things to Do.    

Brian and I just got home from the Executive Women International (EWI) Wichita Chapter’s trivia night, which is their annual fund raising event at Botanica. The theme this year was the Wild West. I was obviously at a disadvantage, but had loads of fun anyway. (Many thanks to Connie for inviting us!)

We had a great group of people at our table: Travis and Joni Paige, Don and Denise Sherman, Nick Bundy and Bri Tucker. We got two tables this year and the other table with Jim and Carol Ludwig, Karla Olsen, Hank and Connie Velghe (she’s the current president of the EWI Wichita chapter), Steve and Melanie Owens and Carol Ludy (a prospective EWI member) actually won. Hurrah!

I bid on a few silent auction baskets and, at one point, was actually worried that I might win all of them. I was worried because I didn’t have enough money for all of them. I really had money for only one auction basket (and barely at that). I bid on several so I had back ups.

At the end of the evening, I didn’t end up with any of them. We did, however, win two of the table centerpieces. We bought five raffle tickets and two of them turned out to be winners. Who would have thought?

It was very lucky too because the table centerpieces are really neat. Each centerpiece consisted of a bottle of wine and a single-bottle wine rack in the shape of cowboy spurs. Since we won twice, I actually ended up with a matching set. They currently grace our sofa table and look great. Now I want more Western themed stuff. LOL.
