A double bill of laughs in the form of comedians Bob Marley and Karen Morgan packed The Woodlands Club Wednesday night for a party in support of WinterKids, a nonprofit that works to introduce Maine's children to skiing and snowboarding. After a lively cocktail hour on the deck, we all made our way into the ballroom to hear Bob and Karen's incredibly witty and totally funny observations about life.


In addition to the draw of Bob and Karen, the party had another star that everyone wanted to talk to: Two-time Olympian Seth Wescott, who lives at Sugarloaf in Carrabassett Valley. Here he is shaking Bob's hand as Karen looks on. Seth is the spokesperson for WinterKids, and to prove how dedicated he is to the cause, he even stepped onto the auction block. Karen then proceed to auction off the opportunity to hit the slopes at Sugarloaf with Seth for two hours and then join him for dinner at The Rack, which he co-owns.

The bidding was swift and competitive, and in the end the hammer came down at $1,800. I'll give you all the details about who won the opportunity to snowboard with him in this weekend's Sunday Telegram, but for now I'll say that a few kids in Maine have really awesome parents.

Since Seth has been named one of the Olympics' Hottest Bachelors and an Olympic Stud of the Day, I thought you'd like to know who he arrived with. That would be the lovely Brianne O'Donnell, who lives in Portland and spends time in the winter at her family's place at Sugarloaf. While I think they make a cute couple, Brianne tells me they've know each other for years and are just friends.

The fabulous party came together with help from many different people, including WinterKids executive director Fran Mullin, center, and volunteers Becca Davis and Tara Nau.

I'll have all the details about who I chatted with at the party, who was formally honored by WinterKids and who was the high bidder for Seth in the July 4 edition of the Maine Sunday Telegram.

Until then, I hope to see you out and about.
