This weekend was SO much fun. I’ve even got 2 recaps for you (one forthcoming)… So let’s get this party started!
I was fortunate enough to win 4 VIP tickets to SC4K’s Luau on the Lake 2013 event, courtesy of Julie and Amanda – thank you so much!
This will be an event I will return to without a doubt.
With my other 3 tickets, I brought Mike, my mom, and I gave a ticket to my friend Dawn. She got a ticket for her boyfriend Jesse & another friend as well. None of us have ever been before so we didn’t know what to bring, but mom happened to have 2 camping chairs in her car which came in handy. I have 2 cornhole sets that I wish I would’ve thought to bring, too. We still had an incredibly fun evening though 🙂
This event benefits Shoes and Clothes for Kids, which is the only non-profit organization in Greater Cleveland providing new shoes and clothes at no charge throughout the year to thousands of children in need (according to their website). What a great cause!
We immediately got in line for a tasty island drink… mango mojitos, cosmopolitans, margaritas, and more were on the menu for the night! They also served free beer and wine, soda and water, and a delicious spread of islandy/beachy food.
I had a great time lounging by the lake with my guy, sipping my island drinks, and enjoying the company of family and friends. We spotted some paddle-surfers (is there a technical term for that?), a few boaters, a beaver (or two), 2 sets of giant Jenga, and I also got to meet Jen and Kimberly – who were both so sweet!
My friends played limbo, we all danced our butts off, dipped our toes in the water, and I even won a prize!
It was THE best way to spend a late Saturday afternoon/evening 🙂
