    • We will have Express Cash Lanes for the Bar AND Silent Auction check-out. Be sure to bring plenty of cash to cut down on wait time!
    • DRESS CODE: This is a semi-formal event, so we recommend that you dress to the 9’s (or 80's)… Beyond that, anything goes! Costumes are not required, but we certainly don’t mind if you want to go a little crazy, either—just wear whatever makes you feel 80's fabulous and VICE groovy!

    Wear shoes you can dance in!

    Thanks to our Silver Sponsors for the fourth year running, the law firm of Gilbert Bird Sharpes and Robinson!
