What is the dress code?
Guests are encouraged to dress in semi-formal summer attire suitable for a garden party. It is recommended that attendees wear a comfortable pair of shoes since they will be walking on different terrains. The event is mostly outside, so guests should dress for the weather.
What items will be up for auction?
This year’s events will include a series of online auctions with the opportunity to win amazing prizes focused on unique experiences. Each Friday starting on August 28, we will open online bidding for two different items.
