…and we, ladies, all wished for a date with David Hasselhoff.

It was a star-studded evening marking the 25 Anniversary of the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Arizona. All the glamorous and beautiful people attended the elegant festivities held at the Phoenician in Scottsdale, AZ. Pat McMahon was the master of ceremonies and the man of the evening. Mr. Hasselhoff was handsome and dashing and a just lovely and endearing man.

Joanne and Scott Fried, Amber at the silen auction A silent auction with some very beautiful items started off the evening. Women dressed in their finest of evening wear and most men wore tuxedos. I understand that was surprising for Phoenix. The extraordinary dinner menu included: Wines by BV Vineyards. Salad of crisp romaine hearts with savory compote of sun-died tomatoes, marinated artichoke hearts and herbs, de Provencal with yellow tomato vinaigrette. The entree was grilled filet mignon with red wine sauce and sautéed wild mushrooms paired with seared sea bass with Dungeness crab sauce, fingerling potato mash, and chef’s selection of seasoned vegetables. Dessert consisted of lemon chiffon cheesecake and chocolate dipped shortbread. Gorgeous presentation that tasted as good as it looked.

During dinner heart felt speeches were made and remembrances of the children that Make-A-Wish helped to make happy. Make-A-Wish Foundation is a wonderful gesture of human kindness.

After dinner the auction began with rapid-fire auctioneer. The bidding war began! Items auctioned off were trips to far away places, elegant dinners cooked by well known chefs, and many more items. Though we ladies all deeply wishd that David Hasselhoff would be on the auction block.

I sat at the U-Haul table, with Joanne and Scott Fried, and Amber. We enjoyed ourselves and had a few laughs remembering our love of “Knight Rider” and several photos opts with David Hasselhoff.
