2009 Crystal Charity Ball - Dallas, Texas

For Your Eyes Only!

Where do I start with updates? How about 2009 Crystal Charity Ball. 
Here we go!
The ball theme was James Bond 007: "Licensed to Thrill."
When the big doors to the Anatole's Chantilly Ballroom opened, we saw super go-go dancers dancing on platforms in a Hollywood Squares-style set. There was a full orchastra in the background and Sheena Easton appeared and sang her James Bond hit - For Your Eyes Only.

The best part was: The Crystal Charity Ball raised $4,040,320. The money will support seven Dallas Children's organizations. 

If a picture is worth a million words - here's several million ...
The most beautiful man in the world - my husband!

See below, James and our friend Ben - after Univ. of Texas won that night.
JHW tracked it on his iphone ESPN game tracker during the entire dinner at the ball, and when he announced UT finally won the place erupted in cheers!
Last time I checked, ESPN game tracker at the dinner table is bad manners - but when it comes to UT football his manners are uncontrollably put on hold.

Hook em' Horns!

A quick pause for a pose...

By the way, we had the most fun table at the ball - right up front and center!
Thank you Amy!
