J is for jammin

My J words this week:  jammin, joyous, joy, jewelry, jovial and jeans.

My Sister is in the health care industry and each year there is a fund raiser for KU Medical Center. The event is called "Treads and Threads" and is held at the Kansas Speedway.

She invited us and some others for the joyous event.  Sister is 2nd from left and I am next to her.

Here we are in our black-tie finery NO jeans allowed. Lots of sparkling jewelry though.

We were jammin to the "Bare Naked Ladies".

Many 5 Star Restaurants served all the food and drinks you could hold for the evening.

We had a jovial time watching the jeweled-toned fireworks.

Since 2002 they have raised over $8,000,000.  Many of the contributions coming from companies in our State.

Linking with ABC WEDNESDAY

Great idea to fundraise for a good cause! What is "jammin"?
Thanks for your visit. The 3D puzzle is not so difficult as all the pieces are numbered.
