Dudes dish up Diamond Dinner

A thank you to the organizers of last week's Diamond Dinner.

Dear editor,

A big thank you to the “Men In Tuxes” for putting on the “Diamond Dinner” at the Seven Hills Golf and Country Club on Feb. 16.

This was the second event in two years that the boys have put on “just for the ladies”.  It’s a nice way to show we are appreciated, and man, these guys are good at it!

We girls know just how much work and expense goes into events like this. Everyone wins something at this event.  When we arrive, we give our tickets with our names on them for the many draws they have later on.  The main prizes were a beautiful $2,000+ diamond ring, a diamond necklace, diamond earrings, helicopter ride, clothing and many other items.

There was a fun, fun, fun “Woman Through The Ages” fashion show from “Eve” dressed in leaves, to the “Red Hat Diva’s” coming out to the song Diamonds are a Girls Best Friend”.

I’d also like to thank Sylvia Frankforth for organizing and providing the costumes for the fashion show, and also the models who are the fastest changers in the North!

The Diamond Dinner setting was great. The food, beverages and music were excellent as was promoting not drinking and driving by providing a 15-passenger van to get us home again.

A special thank you to Bud for being our chauffeur home for the second year! A number of women have reserved tickets for next years event! I’d also like to mention that much of the proceeds from the “Men In Tuxes”  events go back into our community.

Also thanks for all the woman who attended!  I believe a good time was had by all, and I for one, can’t wait for next years event!
