We will reveal the location by email 24 hours prior to the event. We strongly encourage our guests to carpool. In addition to musical entertainment provided by Skip Hancock, there will be some “surprises”. New this year, we invite all of our guests to participate in a table dressing contest. Local celebrity judges will select the top three most creative, elegant and beautifully presented tables.
Napery, tableware, candles, guest attire and wine should be white. We provide the tables, chairs, tablecloths, ambience and music. You may bring alcoholic beverages for your consumption and to share with your dining partners age 21 and above.
