Format of the Evening:
Take in the sweeping views of the Carmel Valley as you enjoy one of the evening’s signature cocktails. Join in the excitement that builds as guests pore over the silent auction. Some of the luxurious splurges you can count on discovering are signed movie memorabilia, travel packages, jewelry, and how-can-you-resist items. And with each year’s unique theme comes an array of interesting diversions—from Can-can girls to roulette to live animals—if you can pry your eyes away from the glittering crowd.
Cocktails and silent auction
As the sun drops behind the hills, you will head down to the dinner tent which is dressed to kill in the evening’s theme. There is no bad seat in the house in this intimate setting, and that’s good news since you will want to take in the evening’s A-list entertainer. Before they take the stage though, you’ll be treated to an elegant three-course dinner paired with wine. And you’ll be inspired and energized by the live auction—bidding is intense for these hard to find experiences, and many are moved to participate in the raise-a-paddle lot: ten wishes for local children that will be “adopted.”
Dinner, live auction and entertainmen
You won’t want the evening to end, not yet. You’re in luck—after dinner you can wind down with coffee or keep it going with drinks and dancing. The night sky from the terrace is spectacular too.
