Doors will open at the Anderson Sports and Entertainment Center at 7 p.m., where guests will be greeted with beads, boas, and masks.

Specialty cocktails will be available for purchase.
Reserved tables are available as a “ Table of Friends” sponsorship. The sponsorship is $400, reserving a table with eight tickets and displaying your business or group’s name. Additional sponsorship opportunities are available.
