We had a great opportunity a few weeks back to participate in an event that the Naval Special Warfare Family Foundation organized at the home of Craig and Rebeccca Irving. Their Annual Point Loma Dinner (and auction) raises funds for Naval Special Warfare personnel and their families. (Please feel free to donate here.)
The event was quite the gala affair and featured keynote speaker Geraldo Rivera.
The Tweet House contingent included Twitter maven Jon Huertas – a U.S. Air Force vet — who is widely known for his ongoing role as crime-solving cop Javier Esposito on ABC’s “Castle.”
Here are a few highlights from the evening:
We spy the wine “ring toss” game. Ring a bottle, take it home:
Jon takes a few tosses:
We learn why Jon’s nickname is “Hawkeye”. The gentleman in the background was the donor of the wines (and a very nice guy), who we don’t think was prepared for some of his top bottles to leave the party so soon…
Jon did extremely well, that 2001 Mouton Rothschild alone is worth $500.00!
Some other cool things to bid on included:
Guitars signed by several platinum performers:
Lots of impressive weaponry…
…including one item no auction should be without:
Many thanks to the foundation for including us!
