I’m not going to say much. What was billed as a two hour event was into its fourth hour when I was unexpectedly called away to RL. 😦 But what a night! The colour, movement and vibrancy of the photos should give some indication of the sort of evening we had. I’ll certainly try and sit down with Virginia, our host, at some point to get her to provide us with some background to this important fundraiser, and maybe get some indication of how much was raised overall.

I’ll let the photos speak for themselves.
