R&R Pools spends a Night out with Friends to Support Cystic Fibrosis
It was on October 17th that the night we all will remember forever took place. The ladies in the office were scrambling around; running from here to there making sure everything was in its place. We had to be ready for the guest to arrive by 6pm. A little panicked but so excited to be hosting our first Charity dinner and live auction. We arrived at Son Vida in Bedford around 4pm to start setting up. As we were unloading the car, it finally hit us; WOW the support we received from our supplies, friends and family for the auction items was complete amazing. The one table we had ready for our auction items was just not going to work. We needed more room. So the wonderful staff at Son Vida, Jeff in particular, helped us run around and collect more tables from their other location. Without even a blink, Jeff was there by our sides making each step a delightful and happy one, making sure we weren’t stress out. Once we had finished setting up, flowers on all tables, napkins folded, mic and amplifier set up, we had a chance to look around and breathe a sigh of relief, everything thing looked perfect. Now it’s time for the guest to arrive.
One by one the guests started to arrive, including our reps from BioGuard, and the new MLA for Timberlea Iain Rankin, and Lisa Weatherhead from Cystic Fibrosis. Son Vida was buzzing with happy noises and smiling faces. Delighted to be there, supporting us in 2 big events. First being our 30thAnniversary in business and the other, Our Charity Dinner and Live and Silent Auction. All proceeds from the sales of the tickets and auction were being raised for Cystic Fibrosis. We at R&R Pools have been sponsoring Cystic Fibrosis for over 5 years now and wanted to add something new for our 30thAnniversary with the Dinner and Auction.
By 6:30 everyone was sitting waiting for the first course to begin and the silent auction was off to a great start. We had a bidding war happening before the appetizers arrived! Anyone that has seen our menu knows that it sounded fabulous and it was one of the best meals I have had in a long time. The wine pairing was an absolute perfect match. Thanks to Boris, the owner of Son Vida, and Chef Joel for working so closely with me to make this dinner a success. Chef Joel and his team did an amazing job. This is a beautiful location, with lots of parking and fabulous event from beginning to end. Thank you again the Staff from Son Vida in Bedford, for giving us these memories to last a lifetime.
After our dinner was complete we followed it with the Live auction items, which consist of items like $500 gift voucher for Maritime travel, Signed Brad Marchand Boston Jerseys, Beautiful Lia Sopia jewerly sets. $500 gift certificate from BioGuard, and much much more!
The support was endless. We were able to raise almost $6000!!! what an amazing night we had. We don’t know where to start in thanking everyone. The support you gave us not only in this Charity event but for the 30yrs we have been providing our service to you, is astonishing! We couldn’t ask for better friends and family. We at R&R Pools are proud to call you our family and look forward to the next 30 years of great times and happy gatherings.
Thank you all again!!
