The silent auction items were on display on the terrace, and the live auction was held in the ballroom after dinner. Guests enjoyed an Italian buffet of chicken piccata and pasta with their choice of sauces, and Paul Daniels provided the background music for the evening.
Folks from both Lookout Mountain, Ga., and Lookout Mountain, Tenn., came together as one to support the school. Serving as master of ceremonies, Rob Huffaker did an admirable job of getting the fun-loving crowd under control for the live auction, and the bidding was lively! There were several big-ticket items, including two stays in a five-bedroom home with a pool on 40 acres at the Town Creek Rod and Gun Club, which was won by Joy and Carson Kaeser and Amy and Jeff Hill. Ben and Lynn Brown will enjoy Memorial Day weekend at the Coca-Cola 600 NASCAR race, as well as their stay at the Hyatt, and Laura and Ryan Cleary look forward to their private event for 16 people at Cloudtree Vineyard in Lafayette, Ga. Savanah and Britton Stansell won skybox seats at the UT’s home game opener, and the beautiful and original Margaret Gaither painting of Lookout Mountain School went home with May and Jeff Burke. Emily and Nicholas Hansen will spend a week at a four-bedroom oceanfront home on 30-A, thanks to Night Out For Lookout, but truly, everyone was a winner, as the entire evening benefitted Lookout Mountain School!
All the supporters enjoyed closing out the evening on the dance floor! Congratulations to the event chairs Meagan Duke and Katherine Smith, co-chairs Morgan Everett and Kakhi Wakefield, and the NOFL committee, Beth Ehly, Maggie Estes, Elizabeth Hailey, Mandy Hickey, Lucia Hopper, Tori Jensen, Lesslie Meier and Tara Weise. All of you did a fabulous job!
