Christmas Gala Event

December 10, 2010 § 1 Comment

Last Friday, not only did I have the honor to photograph a gala event held by the Day Away Organization in Basel, but I  hemmed the tablecloths, assisted to prepare the venue, served a bit (however almost tripping in the stairs due to my long dress!) and helped to clean up afterward. I really enjoy being part of such a wonderful group of women, putting on seminars on current life issues for women, a few times a year.

This is a special event, where also men were warmly invited. Last year we celebrated our 10 th seminar with a Gala Event before Christmas which was so well received, we decided to do another such event this year. A light dinner was served at cosy dinner tables while the guests were listening to piano jazz by Oliver Friedli and all were dressed up in gala attire enjoying the gorgeous venue at the Hirzen Pavillon in Riehen by Basel, Switzerland. Snow was lightly falling outside and a fire crackling in the fireplace. Like in the movies. Heavenly!

Everyone was given a symbolic gift of salt and light as they left, as well as a free CD from Oliver himself. A truly wonderful evening it was!
