Ding dang it! I have flat nothin’ to wear to the fancy party! No dress, no shoes, tangle-ly dried up hair, tacky unpainted goat nails  . . . And trust me no ding dang bluebirds and small little animals are gonna come over, flitter ‘round and make me an outfit. I’m doomed I tell ya! Doomed! I reckon I’ll just sit alone in the garden and mope, mope, mope cause their ain’t no hope.

What’s that? Tinklin’ bells and sparklin’ fairies! Well knock me down and steal my teeth! She’s real! It’s my fairy Godmother! Whoa! She just picked a jalapeno pepper from my garden and turned it into a huge Ford F150 pick up truck! 

Boy Howdy! She’s takin’ me on a shoppin’ spree all over downtown Madison to get me ready for the Morgan Medical Auxiliary’s 19th Annual Festival of Friends Celebration on Saturday August 24 to benefit the Morgan Medical Center! Yes!

That’s right y’all! Get ready cause this is gonna be The. Event. Of. The. Year!! 

Ok so here are all the details! The fun starts a 7 p.m. at The Hall at the Madison-Morgan Cultural Center! Tickets are $50 per person and includes heavy hor d’Oeuvres, full bar, silent auction, raffle and dancing!

The Raffle is super fab! Honey Whidby Jewelers has donated Lady Rose 14Kt Earrings with 2.08Tw Oval Cut Morganite and 0.34Tw Round Brilliant Cut H/II1 Diamonds! Ok so I don’t have a clue what Tw and Cut H stuff means but honey I know what ding dang diamonds mean and that is this: I MUST HAVE THEM EARRINGS! They retail for $999! So raffle tickets are only one ticket for $10 or three for $25 and the drawing will be held during the celebration party! 

Tickets can be purchased in advance at Whidby Jewelry or from any Auxiliary member or at the event! 

Next up there are gonna be more than 100 auction items to bid on from artwork to international vacations! Yes! Get the passport ready! Oh but my fave is that you’ll also be able to bid on eight dinner events, including a Greek Dinner for six! Opa! There’s also an Elegant Children’s Tea Party for eight! Oh and a Conservation Park Evening Cocktails, a Danish Christmas Dinner for eight, a Haute French Cuisine Dinner for 10 to 12, A Splish Splash Family Pool Party for 40, a Rocking BBQ and a New Orleans Jazz Party! OMG I want to bid on them all! 

The best part y’all is that all the proceeds raised will be used to purchase a ventilator and a portable ultrasound machine for our amazingly beautiful new Morgan Medical Center Hospital!!! 

This event is flat sure to sell out y’all, so get your tickets immediately!! Contact Sarah Burbach at for more info!  

I’ll see all y’all there! 

Ok that’s it for the Buzz! Y’all be sweet, buy your tickets to the Festival of Friends event and keep readin’ the best ding dang weekly newspaper in the great state of Georgia!
