A bidding war developed during the live auction between Days of Our Lives star Arianne Zucker and the ever-hilarious SNL legend Garrett Morris and co-star of the new comedy hit 2 Broke Girls. Each were vying for an in-home personal gourmet cooking lesson and prepared meal by Celebrity Chef Kai Chase, who graciously offered to donate her time and skills to both bidders thus doubling financial donation to the Drawing Hope Int’l organization.

The atmosphere at the Drawing Hope Int’l Masquerade Gala was both compassionate and festive. All of the wait staff bore fun colorful face masks and the centerpieces dripped with strings of clear crystals which caught the light beautifully setting a warm, comforting mood on the entire evening. The music was varied and upbeat, the food, a true culinary delight, the award winners, humble and gracious, the host, witting and engaging.  Overall, a triumph for their first charity gala, Drawing Hope, the guests and most of all for the survivors of sexual abuse.
