Although the crowd was smaller for the Peoria Dating Game event than what we commonly experience, the event was an overall success! Special guest, 23-year-old Kari, from the first panel of contestants exuded a confident, lively personality and asked some pointed questions of her good-looking, charming contestants. It was a battle-to-the-end, but Scott was the lucky winner of a date with Kari to Touche' Restaurant and Peoria Players Theatre. The second panel presented a more "experienced" tone to the evening as they were all in their 40's and 50's. Craig was a distinguished special guest who is a Vice-President of a large corporation. His three panelists were quite spunky and witty. They had already become friends by the time they appeared on stage which led to some lively banter between the three. Phillis was his date of choice to a dinner at Johnny's Italian Grille and Peoria Players. Both couples seemed pretty excited about each other. Kari and Scott took off after the event to go Salsa dancing with some friends.
There were also some connections going on in the crowd and we've heard of date plans from a few who met that evening.
On another note, Linda and I were quite excited to get an email that evening from a contact at a church in San Diego who confirmed the church had given their blessing in proceeding with a Cache' Connections event. Of course, we suggested February or the beginning of March as we have been hoping for warm climates for the winter months.
Enjoy your week!
