I decided last minute to go to the Pineapple Ball at the Hyatt.
The recipient of the funds raised this year was MINA, so I sort of felt obliged.
Although I didn't register for the auction, I still manged to buy two things. I bought a $150 gift certificate for a travel agency and a travel DVD player for $75 (what a deal!) and I bought a one night package at the Hyatt's new spa for $350 (kind of expensive, but valued at $700!)
What can I say, Robert Torres is a great auctioneer?
I'm going to give the spa package to my Mom and Jim when they visit in June. I figure I'll let them experience about two weeks of island life, then let them spend the night at the Hyatt while I watch my brother and sister.
Here are a few pictures:
The cocktail party at the Hyatt ended right around 10 PM. Some people (like me) went to Godfather's afterwards.
And yes, that is George Hasselback, Saipan Male Model, singing in a tuxedo.
