Our next major fund raiser is the Winter Ball. It’s “black tie and glamorous frocks” and includes a three course meal at a local golf club, with a band and an auction of promises.
It should be a wonderful event. Tickets sold out the day they went on sale (at £100 a pop). I was one of the lucky ones.
The problem is my husband does not want to go to the ball. And I bet that most of the husbands do not share their wives' enthusiasm for attending this fund raiser.
