Friends of the NRA Dinner

Last night was the Fort Myers Friends of the NRA dinner my husband and I, (and the rest of my family) attended, and it was a blast as usual!!! It was in a new location this year, Harborside Convention Center in downtown Fort Myers, and wow was the space needed! I was quite impressed with how the number of guests grew to over 350 people!!! Last year was about 150 ... What a great turnout! You are probably reading and wondering why I'm even mentioning this ... well last night I had a piece of photographic art on canvas in the silent auction for all to see, along with some mini-photo cards. It was very exciting to see my work out in that kind of setting. It was great to see a piece of my art and creativity have an opportunity to go into someone else's home for them to enjoy. I'm now on a search for other auctions and events where I can donate my pieces, to get my name out there locally and show my work.
Next year I will certainly enter another piece for the silent auction, and next year I also plan to submit a few framed pieces into the bucket auctions and if I can get the right image, a larger one for the live auction.(We've already been brainstorming ideas :)
