Diamonds Are Forever Pool Party – Only James Was Missing


Xenophon was fortunate to have some incredible live auction items at this year’s gala. From a private home concert sponsored by Xenophon’s Board of Directors, to an authentic Danish Dinner, to a tour of the Federal Reserve, to a Bond Pool Party. We’ve brought you the details of some of these fantastic events to entice everyone to attend the gala and bid on these one-of-a-kind opportunities. Here is another to wet your palette…

Ann and Greg Welch hosted a Bond Pool Party for 12 people at their beautiful home in Alamo. It was an evening their guests are not soon to forget. Guest arrived to a champagne greeting, that included pictures in a 2015 Aston Martin car. The only one missing in the driver’s seat was James himself. And what would a Bond-themed dinner be without a martini bar? Custom-crafted lemon basil martinis were served alongside the traditional Bond martini choice, all of which were served shaken, not stirred, of course. Those fancy martinis paired well with the scrumptious caviar bar and passed appetizers that began the evening’s gourmet faire. Filet mignon and asparagus with hollandaise sauce came next, paired with French wines. A cigar bar and Port wines rounded out the theme of the evening.

It was quite the night for the 12 lucky folks who were able to join. Thank you to Ann and Greg Welch for providing this wonderful evening.
