"Plan to be immersed in the unexpected at LongHouse," said LongHouse Reserve President Dianne B. "What we promise is that your spirits will be lifted." Attire for the evening? Shades of BLUE, WHITE or STRIPES. LongHouse Reserve likes to challenge its gala-goers because they are a main component of the décor. "If it glistens, sparkles and shimmers—well that's even more fun."
The evening will feature garden happenings which include cocktails and a silent auction, followed by dinner and honors, and finally, dessert and a music party. The dress code for this event is blue, white or stripes.
