Color of Hope Gala

This was the first event of my busy weekend. Friday night, Matt co-emceed the Color of Hope Gala for the Arkansas Children's Hospital. Here are some pics of our fun night...

They had this really neat red carpet that everyone walked down before entering the event!

Neile and Matt were the emcees for the night. Neile's husband Greg is my date at these events since our spouses are on stage! :)

They did a great job as usual! :)

Herschel Walker was at the charity event. Matt was excited to meet this former Dallas Cowboy!

Another former NFL player was at the event too. Bo Eason played for the Houston Oilers.

Arkansas Razorback basketball coach, John Pelphrey helping raise money during the live auction!

We got to talk to Bo and Dawn Eason for a while at the event. If Dawn looks familiar it's because she was on Melrose Place!!

It was a huge event with about 1200 people in attendance! Tons of money was raised for Arkansas Children's hospital and I loved that everyone wore red!

Next up... Jennifer's baby shower and weekend photos!

Former Dallas Cowboy!? Before he was a Cowboy, he was a Bulldog! Ha! Go dawgs! These are fun pictures - you get to do such fancy stuff! ;) And I love the red top, that is a great look and something different from all the red dresses.
