Ensign Classic

Sunday, June 1, 2008

I know, I know it has been awhile. But we have a good excuse.

I'm an executive director for a charity supported by Senator John Ensign, and we have one main fundraiser each year, the Ensign Classic (see link under "Check These Out" for details). It's a three-day event with a registration, a reception and silent auction, a golf tournament, and a driving experience out at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Most of the attendees work in Washington, D.C., so I also needed to coordinate their travel.

This event was last week and ended on Thursday - I've been recovering ever since! But, it was successful; we raised $338,000, which will be distributed to Nevada charities. I've felt very blessed to be a part of this for the last few years; I get to work from home, keep my contacts pretty fresh, and do something with my talents.

B and me at Bouchon, right before the start of the Ensign Classic Reception and Silent Auction. Bryce helped me so much with this event. He's the best support in the world.

B took this picture once the golf tournament at Cascata was underway - as you can see, I was already unwinding with a book because the golf tournament is the last part of the event

My mom and a nurse watched Caroline while we were putting this on. She was excited for it to be over (although these pictures of her from today don't properly convey that emotion).

"What do I do with all of this attention?"

"I guess I'll just be a little lady."


  1. wow! I lost track of time. This event came up quickly. I am so sorry I didn't get back to your email. I had forwarded it to Nate and not followed up with him. I got carried away with the week. Sorry! Congratulations on a successful week.

  2. Cute pics of all three of the Vegas Lovelands :-)
