  • What to wear, what to wear!? We’ve got a fabulous party planned for you – it’s the perfect occasion to dress in your festive finery! We will be delighted to see you, whatever your attire.
  • What’s the menu look like? Instead of a formal dinner, we provide a hearty buffet, thanks to our season and event sponsor, Tuxedos and Tennis Shoes Catering. Wine and non-alcoholic beverages will also be served all night, including in the theater through the live auction program.

  • Can I expedite my check-out process? Yes! When you check in on Sunday, register for Express Check-Out, which lets you securely store your credit card information ahead of time and speed up the process at the end of the night. Pro tip: You can also sign up for Express Check-Out by providing your credit card on the RSVP return card or by calling Development Director Heidi McElrath in advance of the event: 206-733-8228 x 268.
