Hope Uncorked

We spent Friday evening at an event benefiting the Alzheimer's Association in Augusta, GA. It was held downtown at the River Room and was called Hope Uncorked, A Night to Remember. The following pictures were all taken by Ryan Wehmeyer.

We tasted many different wines, from Australia, France, Argentina and California, and lots of good food.

They held a silent auction throughout the night with items ranging from a golf cart to jewelry to a black lab puppy. We really wanted to bid on him because he was soooo cute, but we just don't have room for a dog.

At the end of the night they had a live auction for this artist's work:

His name is Richard Worth, and he is one of the artists whose talent is featured on the Augusta Water Works' walls. Cary and I really liked his work, and we are thinking of getting him to do a piece for us.

We had a great time, and if you want to see more pictures from the evening go to the "Spotted" website.
