Don't just live in the world

What are you doing New Years?

December 19th, 2013 | Posted by Amy Boughner in Parenting | Personal | Sponsored

I struggle to remember the last time Joe and I had actual plans on New Year’s Eve. I mean, we certainly haven’t done anything since the kid was born, and before that I’m not even sure.

This year when I got an invitation to the Starfish Events New Year’s Party and Casino Night we took a look at each other and decided we would do it. It’s a little out of character for us, but it’s been a tough year. So we booked a room at the Marriott in downtown Ottawa, and  on December 31 we will head out to party in 2014 and let loose for a little while. I love to dance, and maybe I’ll even be able to coax Joe away from the casino games for a while.

Focusing on just the two of us at midnight will do us some good as a married couple and be a great start to our seventh year of marriage, looking out over my city.

And then after the first kiss of the new year there’s a dessert bar – what better way to kick it off?

They’re even giving away a trip for 2 to the real Las Vegas, which is one of the things on my bucket list.

All proceeds from the silent auction at the event, plus a portion of the ticket sales will go to support the United Way Lunch Box Program. The Lunch Box program helps Ottawa’s 1 in 5 children living in poverty, ensuring they have healthy lunches and teaching them food preparation and food safety skills.

Tickets to the What Happens in Vegas Party are available here.

Disclosure: I received two complementary tickets to the event from Starfish Events.
