THIS YEAR’S THEME
We invite you to take a “walk in the woods” with us! Guests can expect a captivating evening inspired by the natural world. Prepare to embark on a journey through the gallery, sampling delicious food and drinks, taking in the animated surprise performances, viewing the exhibition of works assembled solely for you and the other attendees of the event, all while being swept away by the woodland atmosphere.
Guests do not need to dress for the theme – but are encouraged to “dress to impress.”
