  • Open Bar
  • Three - Course Dinner
  • Raffles, Silent Auction, & Live Auction
  • Music, Dancing, & Fun with Friends
  • VIP Cocktail Hour for DPMMR Members

The festivities kick off at 5pm with a private VIP Cocktail Hour featuring live music, an open bar, and access to early bidding on silent auction items!
