We were lucky to be invited by Toyota to attend the MASKquerade ball, which was a charity event to raise money for a really great cause- MASK. I know, clever right? MASK is mother’s awareness on school-age kids. Essentially it’s a charity that knows kids are online 24/7 and moms weren’t at that age. There’s a lot of issues associated with it- depression, cyber-bulling, pornography, and a pressure that never stops at school. MASK is meant to help educate parents how to help their kids deal with issues and how to be aware of these issues. As a former teacher it’s a cause near and dear to my heart.
The fact that we got to wear a mask to a masquerade wasn’t so terrible either!
Luckily we have some friends who had a Phantom of the Opera themed wedding at an opera house, and their bridal party all wore fancy masks, so we had our choose of some really cool masks to borrow for the night. Thank you guys, they were perfect for the event and so fun to wear!
When we walked in I felt like I was in a scene from the modern The Great Gatsby. I think even the floor took after the logo! So many fancy people looking amazing all dressed up, with and without masks.
This is when Jacob informed me that people could still see me and the awkward things I was doing even while wearing a mask.
