My family spent this weekend at the two-day fundraising event called, The Rally for Kids with Cancer Scavenger Cup. It was an absolutely amazing experience full of many firsts for us - the first time walking the red carpet, the first time being asked "Who are you wearing?", the first time seeing a different celebrity at every turn, and most importantly, the first time being involved with such an amazing cause.
I took a million pictures because, I mean, come on... it's not like I do this every day! I wanted to capture and remember it all. So, for the next several weeks, I'll be giving you an exclusive peak into this spectacular event. And let me tell you, it was pretty AMAZING!
It all kicked off with "The Qualifiers" Celebrity Draft Party where the drivers (folks that raised money) got to select their Celebrity Navigator. The draft order was determined by the driver who raised the most money.
The invitation read:

The Rally will kick off with "The Qualifiers" Celebrity Draft Party.
