ESA's Bunco Night

Last night, Amy, Lynn and I went to another ESA chapter's function. It was a Think Pink Bunco night to benefit St Jude's. This was their 4th annual Bunco Night. Of course, we had to wear our pink Delta Nu shirts. And everything there was decorated in pink and with flamingos.

When I got there, I decided that with the way my luck has been going, I should buy raffle tickets. I haven't won anything in a few weeks, but I haven't really been to anything either, so I thought that I had a pretty good chance of winning something.

We ended up sitting with some ladies from my old chapter and it was great to catch up with them. And there were ladies from other chapters as well and it was really nice to see everyone and to be able to support Sigma Chi with their fundraiser!

Here is a picture of Lynn and I while we were playing Bunco.

At the end of the night, they were giving away the door prizes and raffle items. There were 4 grand prize raffle items. Of course, I was hoping that I could win the one with 5 or 6 different restaurant gift cards. They call out the third and fourth grand prizes and they get to the second grand prize. At our table, we read through what is on the second grand prize - an overnight stay at a local Marriott with breakfast in bed, wine, dinner gift cards, movie tickets with popcorn and drink tickets. I read it aloud and then say, "Oh, please, just don't call my name!" Everyone at the table chuckled a little because it was 90 minutes earlier that I had to explain about the garbage with George. Well, they start saying the prize and say, "and the winner is .......... Jill....(long pause)" and then they say my last name. Oh .... My..... God!! Are you kidding me?!?! I started laughing hysterically and Amy, Lynn and Maddy were doing the same. I was laughing so hard that I was crying by the time I went up to pull the last name. And all of the other ladies at the end of our table (Elaine, Amy H, Rita) and at the next table (Judi K, Sandy F, Mary Beth B, Kathy S) were all saying, "Jill, that's great! How awesome! Go get your prize!"

There was also a $25 gift card to a salon so that I can get my nails done for my overnight stay at the hotel all alone. How cool is that?

Earlier in the night, Mary Beth B was telling me that she thinks about me a lot and wanted to know if I would like to meet her son. I said sure. Well, after winning this prize, she said that she would have to re-think that! She took my info to give to him. I had to run over to that table and tell them why we were hysterical after they said my name and they all got a kick out of that!

If nothing else, the ladies all thought that it would be a great time to have a slumber party! :)

All kidding aside, it was a very nice gift and it's nice to know that I am still on a winning streak!
