The Old Line Society's Benefit

About the Old Line Society...
Because of the long service of the high quality regiments, George Washington, according to tradition, referred to the Maryland units as his "Old Line," giving Maryland one of its nicknames as "The Old Line State. As Washington depended on his Old Line to protect Baltimore from the British, we can now depend on it to help the City and its charities.

All proceeds from this event supported the Wounded Warrior Project, a nonprofit organization that provides programs and services to severely injured service members during the time between active duty and transition to civilian life.


The silent auction table was Maryland Flag themed.

Lawyer Liz and I managed to set up the table with the help of my sister.

Merchandise donated by Southern Tide.

A handsome tie from J. McLaughlin.

BlackBerry on behalf of T-Mobile.

SAS arranging the gift certificates from Kail's Court Restaurant Group.

Gift certificate from Smathers & Branson.

There were bags and beach towels galore from Jimmy and Sook.

Top notch parking passes for steeplechase races.



A generous spread of hors d'oeuvres.

The popcorn was a hot item by the end of the evening.

The crowd kept the bartenders very busy.

Happy Jimmy and Sook winners.

After we had closed up and called it a night...we found a lonely pair of Loubs. It's still a mystery to me how you could leave your Loubs especially when it was 40 degrees outside!

Special thanks to everyone that came out for our first event and supported the Wounded Warrior Project. We couldn't have done it without such generous vendors and business owners. We appreciate the donations from our local restaurants and Maryland steeplechase race contacts. All in all it was a successful and entertaining evening.

WOW! I am impressed, what a great event and flawlessly executed, congrats!! You look gorgeous, what a beautiful dress on you, and love the accessories. You're still Miss Maryland to me (and prettier!) Can't believe someone left their Loub's behind! HAHA! You and JCW make such a sweet couple. My hubby loves bowties as well :)

Looks like a very nice event for a great cause, but the Jim Beam Rye and Bud, as opposed to Pikesville Rye and Natty Boh make me question this group's dedication to the Old Line State :)

I hope someone checked under the tables in case the owner of those shoes was still present.

I'm with Trish but not so lady like about it.
Who has freaking lost their ever loving mind and left their C Lou's behind. Unexcusable.
Now that a fashion f*** up.
Can't wait to get to know you better, we are going to get along just fine. Love my Trish, wouldn't trade her for anything.

I love every single bit of the night- per the norm, you two are such an attractive couple, fabulous swag for the silent auction, sumptuous food and booze spread and I just cannot believe that someone took their Loubs off, much less left them there!
