The annual Other Half Dinner provides the non-riding partners from the club membership an opportunity to share in the fellowship of the club in a fun can casual evening. This year our Other Half Dinner was held on Sunday evening January 28th . The evening began at the Wilmette Golf Clube with a Meet and Greet and cocktail hour (which only lasted about a half hour). Good conversation was had all around.
Dinner was served buffet style and included salad, beef, chicken and pasta, followed by layer cake, carrot cake and brownies.
After dinner, entertainment was provided by Tom Boz, Magic that makes your Event Memorable. He mystified the group with his magic, card tricks and mind reading.
This year we had a Funky Socks Exchange. Some very interesting, unusual and funky socks were exchanged. Poor Andy Freed had her socks stolen several times.
For the first time a 50/50 raffle ticket drawing. 50% of the proceeds went to the winning ticket and 50% will be donated to The Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage, this year’s charitable organization being honored at the Ride 2 Remember ride being held in Cleveland, Ohio. Congratulations to Shlomo A. on winning the first 50/50 drawing. The club would like to thank all those members who participated in the raffle.
The group would like to thank Mara S. for the beautiful center pieces she created and Marcia R. for the wonderful evening. We would like to also thank and acknowledge the vendors who graciously donated gifts to our club for the evening:
