Casual cocktail attire. We suggest no spiked heels, as we will be on grass and some uneven surfaces. We could not ask for better weather as it will be mostly sunny with an overnight low of 59 degrees. This is an outdoor event under a tent, so dress comfortably for the weather.

No tickets needed. Simply proceed to the check-in table in front of the brick building to claim your reservation. If we did not receive your contact information through online sales (e.g., if you are the guest of a table host), we will collect your name and contact information upon checking in.  and auction! Thank you.
