We’re getting back to posting updates from Auction Night and will have more content up this weekend.

It was an awesome evening out at Auction Night 2008 - Strawberry Night Fever. As we left the sitter and approached Mill Valley Community Center we spotted the lights emanating from the parking lot, directing us to our big event. It was amazing to see so many people decked out in full seventies dress. Everyone looked fabulous! From sexy short dresses and long go-go boots to groovy tie dye shirts and way out hair. There were peace signs and disco balls adorning our party goers and smiles everywhere. You had to wonder how seventies fashion went out of style when everyone looked this good!
We are working on the blog today and will be posting updates on last night’s fantastic event! If you couldn’t or didn’t attend Auction Night, we’ll have photos and videos of the evening’s highlights online as fast as we can so you can see what you missed. Come back soon!
Check out this wonderful welcome video put together by a Strawberry parent for Auction Night 2008. It will be on display at tonight’s event. If you don’t get teary watching this video, you might have to check to see if you still have a heart.

ONLY THREE DAYS TO THE SCHOOL PARTY OF THE YEAR!
We hope you are all coming on Saturday! (if you change your mind, just show up!! - you can buy tickets at the door).

BTW, we are short on Auction Night catalogs, so if you don’t need yours, then please drop it by to the cart or the office - we’d appreciate it!
The seventies was the decade of big hair and big attitude. It was also the decade that introduced us to big box office hits. When Universal released Steven Spielberg’s Jaws in the summer of 1975, it was the first movie in US history to gross over $100 m at the domestic box office and ushered in the era of the blockbuster.
