There will be a silent auction in conjunction with the gala. If you or your business would like to donate items to the auction, please contact Lirssa al Amat or Jewell Ravenlock by May 29.

((We will be attempting to use the auctions function in conjunction with a board event. Those who win the auctions will get specific item icons on their profile when they win the auction. The auction will run June 8 through June 11, so winners can detail winning in the thread if they choose. More details on the auction as we get closer.))

?Welcome to the Kids of Summer Foundation Gala, Journey through the Jungle. The foundation board and I are so very grateful for your support of our mission: to aide the children of our community who have lost everything and who seek but do not have recourse to shelter, medical care, education, and love.

Enjoy the dinner, the music, and the performance of the West Egg band. Do not forget the silent auction going on for some fabulous gifts donated so generously by local businesses and artists.?



The RhyDin Imperial Hotel Ballroom is transformed into a peaceful jungle through a blend of glamour and physical craft. Magical blossoms open near paper flowers cut and colored by little hands. A small waterfall in the corner has paper cranes gathered at the edge looking at the live koi in the pond.

Between the songs of the live band, sounds of chittering monkeys, songs of birds, and sometimes the purring growl of a predatory feline can be heard. The highly attuned will know the sounds to be fiction, to enhance the atmosphere.

Round tables left a half circle open space in front of the stage for dancing and the performance. Two long tables set near the back wall, one on each side of the manned bar, carried many delectable dishes and sweet treats.

Jewell was present to play co-host for the event. She had secured her favorite arm candy.. err escort in Kalamere with the assurance that no actual children were to be present at the event (which was her own preference).

Despite whatever troubles she had been dealing with in the last few weeks, The Empress was at her brightest and most charming during the gala. She certainly knew how to rub elbows with the social elite in RhyDin, nimbly encouraging them to empty their pockets for the Foundation.

Thorn was probably not dressed appropriately for a run through any sort of jungle. With Roan and 'Dia off on another sortie, she attended the Gala on her own.

If at all possible she'd snag random people for a dance or three, working up an appetite before trying the oh-so tempting selection of tidbits offered. And of course, she hit the bar more than once.

First chore of the night had been the task of scoping out the establishment from the inside for proper exits. Once that was finished, Nayun would be as she always is in these situations. Not at all talkative at the beginning of the night, unless someone (most likely Lisa) spoke to her first. She'd be declining any drink that wasn't water and looking over the food with a scrutinizing eye. Her attention split between the sound of animals, the paper creations, and - of course - the koi fish. She might have even spoken up with an interest of feeding them.

Oh, and Lisa's hair should be on point (or as on point as it was at the beginning of the party), or else she'd find Nayun reaching out and fixing it throughout the night.

When hearing of the `One week holiday on a tropical island from anonymous donor`, her interest shifted to finding out if hunting would be allowed on the island.

After the first slip of hair was pushed back into place by a careful hand, Lisa picked up on the potential game and would soon be exploiting it with a playful and faux innocent expression. Once it became clear she was pushing her luck, Nayun stared at her blankly just a little bit longer than normal, her laughter barked out to show her amusement.

More vocal than her date, Lisa would happily talk to strangers and familiars alike, mingling and rubbing elbows with the city?s philanthropic elite. Not without a glass with two fingers worth of Scotch in her hand though, which seemed to be more of a prop than anything else as only a sip or two was taken over the course of the night. She was driving after all.

The auction items that held a particular interest with her were the pieces of jewelry open for bidding, but when a member of the staff offered to bring the Sterling Silver ?Deer? ring closer for inspection Lisa was thoroughly startled and backed away, ?I can see it from here, thank you.? It would likely be the only time of the night she?d speak sharply to someone.

In a successful attempt to recover her mood and enjoy the party, once Nayun stated that she knew how to dance Lisa was quick to drag the woman to the dance floor with her.

How Amthy loved a party; the olivine-haired Nymphy-pix was something of a social butterfly. Or a moth as the case may be, since she was drawn to the event like one to a flame. She ran a gold lacquered nail over her lower lip. Were there such things as social moths? Amthy wasn't certain. The idea was filed away to ask about later.

As far as she was concerned, there was everything to love about a party. There was selecting the most perfect dress (which she had in a fashionable pink shade that complimented both her complexion and her green hair.), finding just the right accessories and make-up, and of course there was the spa day. A dreamy sigh slipped from her as she remembered the heat of the water soaking into her skin and the texture of the cool mud when it was caked and drying on her face.

Glancing up as she drifted around a table, she wondered if the staff would make her a cucumber and lemon water. Nothing else, Amthy decided, would do. But before she could make that desire a reality the Nymph was distracted by the paper flowers and she spent some time examining them.

Kate wasn't particularly pro-child but hey, there was a silent auction for really good stuff, stuff that would let her spend more time on herself. That was always worth an effort!

The jungle theme intrigued her but she took it a different direction. Instead of looking like a tropical flower, Kate opted to gird her loins like an Amazon. An Amazon whose game was on point.

She put her name down for the 3-day boat excursion, the 5-day cruise and the week-long holiday. All of those sounded wonderful - fingers crossed!

Colleen had requested a table for 8 and paid in advance. Six of the seats were already spoken for, but she wasn't certain about the last two. Rhiannon and Dennis Harker had already claimed their places. Rhiannon Brock and Eregor would be along later.



Colleen took her seat alongside alongside Maggie, who was her date for the celebration.

Saila and Quinn arrived together. Taking care of kids who had lost everything -or never had anything to begin with - was a cause that was dear to both of their hearts, considering, and anyway the girl had never been to a foundation gala before. It was hard to want to get dressed up in pretty clothes and go to a fancy party, what with everything that had gone down at the Camp, but. All the more reason to go out and celebrate life, right?

The purple haired girl was fascinated with all the food choices. She didn't try any of them, preferring to spend her time and money at the bar, but Quinn assured her that everything he tasted was delicious. They both got a good snicker out of the atmosphere-enhancing jungle sounds, particularly the muted growl-scream of a jungle cat. Whispers of puma puppets were likely exchanged.

When Saila found Lirssa, she stopped to congratulate her fellow student on the success of the event. The decorations were beautiful, she said, and everyone seemed to be having a lovely time. She would also introduce Quinn to her, if the two had not previously met.

It wouldn't be hard for Thorn to coax Saila into a dance or two, and Saila probably cajoled the white wolf into it in turn.

Sabine would attend with Josiah as her date for the event. There were a few well timed photo-ops that took place and when she wasn't posing per her manager's instructions, she spent time near the koi pond and paper cranes.

Bids were made on the auction items, a sampling of all the available foods was eaten, and of course there were a few drinks over the course of the event.

Despite some of the topics that arose which stirred painful memories, she managed to keep smiling through the night and even danced a few times with her date.

Accompanied by Peaches and trying her best not to chomp her gum too loudly. Blame it on how she's trying to quit smoking, again, for the third time. Phone kept on permanent silence, but that didn't stop the buzzing rumbles coming from her right pocket off and on throughout the party. Terry'd make small talk with whoever felt like it, waved and gave her normal casual half-smile to Maggie, and tried her hardest not to follow after Peaches to bum a smoke when the blonde dipped out to light a cigarette.

Good thing she didn't go... Or else she'd miss the bidding on the ring that Peaches had been eyeing and commenting on. So, doing her friend a solid, she'd bid and win the ring in her stead. Needless to say, Peaches totally owed her one. Something she made sure to say aloud when she set the ring in the city sirens hand upon her return.

Liv and Johnny weren't the sort to pass up a date night for a good cause, not these days. With all their children under trusted, watchful eyes following a Granger wedding earlier in the day, they slipped away from the Grove to lend their support to the Kids of Summer Foundation Gala. And a good time was had by all, no doubt.

Lirssa was nervous, which meant she was moving. It was the best way to handle pretty much any and all emotions she was feeling. Unless she was actively avoided (and could not really blame some for that), she greeted and thanked everyone for coming to the gala, for their support of the foundation, and to wish them a wonderful time.

She spoke to people as individuals, asking after family when she knew they lived nearby, how new business ventures were going, or, in some cases, how they were holding up. It was good to see friends, family, acquaintances.

No less than five times did she thank Aric for accompanying her, and going through whatever Jewell and Amthy had put him through. Aric helped Lir pace herself by drawing her into a dance or two and letting her catch her breath at times with easy conversation. When he was not mobbed by others. Lirssa told him it was the beard, just to tease him.

At the close, she watched as members of the board announced the auction winners and thanked everyone for their support. It was time to take off the shoes.

((Please keep posting attendance. I will keep this open for another week, and will try to get icons out as soon as I can. Thank you!!))

Aric was more than happy to assist Lirssa in any way she needed. After all, if it wasn't for her inviting him along, he wouldn't have been there at all!

His beard trimmed and hair neatly styled, he would make sure to thank Jewell and Amthy for their help this week and invite them to dance if they so desired. Aric would also find Kate and compliment her on her choice of clothing again, and ask for a dance as well. He would also be very friendly and gracious to anyone who was part of the group that mobbed him, or just approached him without anyone else.

He would be sure to not stray too far from Lirssa, however, even if she did like to tease him about the beard. It was only right to spend the most time and to leave with the one who brought him.

Once Amthy had admired each and every paper flower, and there were quite a few, she took her attention to the wait staff. After explaining her desire?cucumber, lime, and lemon rounds accompanied with bruised (not crushed) mint leaves afloat in icy water?the Nymph drifted around sipping on her spa-inspired water. While in the process of making her way around the ball room she became aware of the silent auction.

Delighted, Amthy made sure to leave her mark under a few desirable items. Just thinking that she could win was exciting! It brought a pleasing mix of lemongrass, orange blossom, and cherry scents to the air around her. Satisfied that there was nothing more she could do except wait (and waiting wasn't always her strong suit) Amthy turned her attention back to the meet-and-greet aspect of the affair. A special effort was made to exchange words with Jewel, Lirssa, and Aric; all of which she requested dances with had they space left on their cards.

Though it could come as a surprise to some people, Jake made his way out of the woodwork to support the Kids of Summer Foundation. Purchasing a pair of tables for the employees (and their respective dates) of The Waterfront Blues club, he refrained from mingling with them to give an opportunity to enjoy their evening without the suit sulking among them. Instead Jake would be found looming at the bar, or making an escape constantly to smoke outside should the venue wish for guests to refrain from smoking. Some things the black suit just couldn?t change.

On the lookout for old faces, he?d greet the few familiar ones with a raise of his glass while remaining as stoic as ever.

Thanking Lirssa for co-hosting the evening, he was sure to pass over a small envelope with an additional donation inside. If asked, Jake merely nodded and spoke with the same monotone voice as always, ?This seems to be a foundation that sits close to my heart.?

As usual, Phen kept very close to Ebon through much of the function so people would not think she was being rude in not speaking. It was a pleasure to speak with Collie, Maggie, and family with Maggie's interpreting aide. Ebon, as ever, took time to speak with everyone who desired or required his attention.

It was a wonderful time for a cause that the Ilnarens were keenly attuned to, sharing it's goals, and more than happy to support the foundation.

Fin was on the arm of Lucy, escorting her as he normally did to these types of events. It was a chance to get a slice of life that Fin could only dream of but at the end of every night with the glittering crowds, he always enjoyed going back to his simple home and appreciating the few things he could afford.

Besides, at least there were friends that he knew to chat with, dance with, help to make it a memorable evening. Even if he did have to wear a bloody tie (that ended up stuffed into his pocket less than halfway through the evening).

Lucy was taken for many spins around the dance floor but he didn't hover, letting her have her conversations while making sure that her drinks were kept full and there was a smile on her face. He also danced with Jewell, Lirssa (if she wasn't too busy) and any lass that happened to ask him.

Somewhere near the bar, he spied Ketch and they spent a few moments surveying the crowds, commenting on those they knew and didn't know, passing any juicy gossip back and forth over whiskey.

Jewell was attached to the arm of her handsome date for most of the event. Kal's company made the necessary niceties a little less painful (so did the drinks she sent him off to get now and then). She was also convinced that they looked to the utmost advantage when together.

With the half-elf at her side, she made a point of greeting every guest she possibly could. Far from appearing to run out of steam at any point, The Empress seemed to be in her element. Her perfectly charming smile, with just a hint of glamour at the corner, was there as she made new friends, greeted old ones, and introduced herself to their unfamiliar dates.

Eventually, she found a reprieve from the constant socializing by pulling Kal onto the dance floor with her. Jewell had worn heels appropriate for having her much taller partner spin her about. The only time she left his side for any length of time during the evening was to dance with Amthy, Aric, and Fin. She found her way back to the half-elf in the end, though.

"Help me tape my tits, yea'?"

First question asked of Terry but wouldn't be the last. Getting ready for the gala took more time for the siren than her half-and-half friend who was ultimately like a sister from another mister -- obviously.

Peaches was as much a soothesayer as she was a coy performer when chatting with familiar guests, browsing the auctions (she swore she would get that flower ring if her life depended on it; smoking took precedence so it was her luck that Terry won the bid for her), rubbing elbows with distractions that may or may not end up as a notch on the bed post later on.

The event was beautiful but towards the later hours she began to show Terry, on a napkin, her soon to be crescendo in the current RPG she had been sucked into back home. Terry seemed lost, but not annoyed, and just pointed out that some of the tape around Peaches' chest was starting to show.

"Let's go, yea'? No child is worth the pain this tape is causing my breathing." And they left, the city siren tugging at the exposure of her upper half just as they exited for the cabs.
