And I Can Cook, Too

When you help others, you can’t help helping yourself.

Walter, Kim and I joined Randy and Lora at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel for Lora’s annual Rotary Club fundraiser. After a quick tour of the silent auction our mission was clear: win “An Evening of Bagpiping” by any means necessary. In addition we vowed to up as many bids as possible. Dinner was served, and along with it, unlimited complimentary champagne.

Walter’s take: an estate planning package and a seven-dollar poster of Picasso. Kim’s take: a massage and hair products package and horseback riding lessons. Lora’s take: an evening of bagpiping, a diamond pendant, a pearl choker, a fabulous pink leather purse, gift certificates to Buzz's Steakhouse and The Chef's Table, an Italian wine basket, a wine bottle with carrier,
parking for future Rotary meetings, a Lanikai Bath and Body basket, and a wooden bowl.

Those wacky Rotarians sure know how to inspire upping the bid.

    NOW I know why you asked about what I won, you trickseter, you!

    That was a really fun evening. Bill Bigelow really made it feel like we were broadcasting "Hawaii Calls" live.

    Wait till next year when I'm co-chair of that event! Ha!
