About this year’s theme…
While the evening’s auction items do not follow any single theme, the Venetian Carnival theme will extend to the cuisine, cocktails, décor, music, and more. Guests are welcome to arrive dressed with masks or carnival garb (neither required) as we prepare for an energy in the air that will rival the streets of Venice!
