Formal for the occasion. Black tie optional. Costumes for the adventurous. And don’t forget your mask!

ACT I 

Benvenuto! Welcome! 

Your transformation begins! Don your mask, assume your anonymity and enter a magical and mysterious world of wandering performers and intriguing happenings. Sip on signature cocktails (The Illusion and The Wingéd Lion) and enjoy tantalizing hors d’oeuvres. In the Grand Lobby, it’s Italian arias. In the Knight Stage, a musical surprise! In the Arcade, our auction invites you to indulge in pleasures of all kinds.

 ACT II  

Mangia! Bevi! Sii felice! Offerta!

Eat! Drink! Be Merry! Bid! 

Dinner is served in the elegant strolling style, inspired by the Italian spirit of D’Agnese’s Trattoria. Enjoy ambient music and delightful amusements at every turn. The lure of the auction calls. Don’t resist. Bidding ends at 9:00 p.m.

ACT III  

Andiamo!

Let’s go! 

Embrace everything! Gather in our extravagant auditorium for The Reveal! Will you dance the night away under the stars? Will your mask free you from your inhibitions in the karaoke lounge? Or will you enjoy intimate time with friends in our Grand Lobby café to watch the parade of elegant passers-by?

Partake in dolci e caffe — a decadent array of desserts and delicious coffees and a perfect ending to an amazing evening!

Buona Notte!

Goodnight, dear friends. Until next year!

Thanks to our 2022 Spirits of the Civic gala sponsors!
