A Night to Remember: The Butterfly Ball

Monday, November 20, 2017

Saturday night Dustin and I had the opportunity to attend the Butterfly Ball.  This ball was a fundraiser for the Prayers for Kayleigh (PFK) Foundation in my hometown.  I don't know if you remember from last year, but I mentioned a little 7 year old girl in my hometown who was diagnosed with DIPG, a 100% terminal brain tumor, who died last November after a 6 month battle.  Saturday night raised money for the research on DIPG done at St. Jude's in Memphis.

We had a fabulous time getting dressed up and enjoying a night of dinner, drinks, and dancing!

 (excuse the bad lighting!)



 I was excited to get to break out my faux fur coat!  I found this one that's similar to mine, but mine is a few years old.



 I didn't take any pictures at all because I was having so much fun, but I did think to snap this really quick of part of the venue.  Purple was Kayleigh's favorite color, so purple was everywhere.  Beautiful fabric was draped all over everything, and there were chandeliers everywhere.  They had a cocktail hour with really good hors d'oeuvres and both a silent auction and a live auction.  We listened to a lecture from Kayleigh's oncologist at St. Jude's and then the dancing started!

 I had to battle severe wind walking into the venue so it straightened out one of my curls.  We literally drove through a severe thunderstorm that knocked out half the power in my town on our way to the ball.



 The lady in front of me is Kayleigh's grandmother and she is a sweet coworker of mine





Did anyone else attend a ball this weekend? ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜œ

  3. That sounds so much fun! I’ve always wanted to get fancied up and attend a ball. Your dress is absolutely gorgeous. This is random, but I’m pretty sure you are wearing the same dress as the girl in the Hallmark movie I watched yesterday, Coming Home for Christmas. Lol

  4. BEAUTIFUL dress! I've always wanted to find and wear a cobalt blue dress like that to a ball. What a fun night, and I love that you all supported this family and foundation this way. Thinking of that family and what they went through (and still go through) makes my heart stop. I cannot fathom.

  14. I've told you before..that color is amazing on you! So beautiful friend!! A nurse at my work in the OB department has a granddaughter recently diagnosed with the same thing. Such a sad diagnosis to watch families journey through.
