KISSING THE BLARNEY STONE

Event: Green Tie Gala — “Eat, Drink and Change A Life.”

Venue: National Cowboy & Western Heritage Center.

Presented by: Catholic Charities.

To benefit: Sanctuary Women’s Development Centers and Holy Family Home of Catholic Charities, which provide assistance to homeless women in the metro area.

The evening: A true festive Irish evening with leprechauns all over the place (although none were spotted). Green was the color, and not only were numerous women wearing the finest in green dresses and scarves, but men sported ties and vests to match. A huge green bow tie was mounted on the wall behind the stage and tables and chairs wore dressy green fabric. In keeping with the theme an Irish meal was served and lively auctions included items of the same ilk.

Honored: Jim Everest, 2014 Green Tie Gala Ambassador.

Chairmen: Linda Haneborg was chairman and co-chairman was Deborah McAuliffe Senner. Patrick Raglow is Catholic Charities executive director.
