We heartily enjoyed the Austin Lounge Lizards, as always. But the real high point of the day was that Lori won one of the 50/50 raffles. (I had never encountered the 50/50 raffle concept before I came to Pittsburgh. A church or other charitable organization will sell tickets for a raffle; the lucky winner gets 50% of the proceeds of ticket sales, and the other 50% goes to the charity.) So we won over $400, which was a lovely treat in our awkward financial position.
After winning the raffle, we felt a lot more enthusiastic about bidding on things in the silent auction. I won auctions on miniature golf tickets and ice cream gift certificates, and Lori got a nice moonstone necklace. Woohoo!
