The Village social season will kick off on Saturday evening, Nov. 3, when Pinecrest Gardens hosts its “Masquerade in the Gardens — A Night at the Moulin Rouge” annual benefit. The evening under the stars in the botanical gardens will be a night that recalls exotic fantasies and pleasures of the famed Parisian nightclub. The gala event begins at 7 p.m. on Lakeview Terrace with cocktails and entertainment, including renowned jazz diva Debby Orta and her trio (provided by KCC productions), stilt walkers, jugglers and fire eaters.
A full bar will be provided by Bacardi and there will be martini bars and wine bars for libations. Several food stations from Macy’s Catering will serve up a selection of gourmet entrees. After dinner, there also will be an array of desserts provided by Lily Pâtisserie, Sinful Sweets Pastry Shop and Filled & Frosted. The night continues in the Meadow, staged in true night club form complete with dance floor, ringside tables, music and dancing featuring the Continental Brass Band. And no guest will leave empty handed, as everyone will get a goody bag filled with an array of gifts.
Alore Events is lending expertise and attention to detail to assure the event will be a night to remember for all who attend. Proceeds from “Masquerade in the Gardens” will benefit Pinecrest Gardens and help defray annual operating expenses.
CALL FOR SPONSORS, DONORS
The Gardens needs sponsors and donors for this event to help fill gift bags with memorable surprises for all attendees. Also needed are wine and sparkling wine sponsors and a sponsor for a gourmet cheese station.
There will be a step-and-return photo station that will carry major sponsors’ names and logos, and sponsors also will be featured with their logo/ad in all printed collateral materials, including the program, banners, press releases and invitations.
The Gardens is also seeking donations for goody bags to be handed out to the expected 250 attendees. This is an excellent opportunity for retailers and manufacturers to publicize their product.
Tickets to the black-tie-optional gala are $150 (all inclusive).
