It’s a palpable excitement in the air, increasing by the hour as the 31st Annual Black Tie Dinner approaches. It smells of sweet perfume, and in the gentle breeze you can hear the soft whispers of Meredith Baxter and Chaz Bono beckoning.
But before the grand evening commences, there’s a pre-party the night before that perfectly captures a celebratory spirit mingled with eager anticipation.
It’s the B4 Black Party. And whether you have a ticket to the Saturday night dinner or not, you’re invited to attend this free event.
Hosted by the dreamy Bravo TV star Madison Hildebrand (Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles), B4 Black Party is the perfect kick-off to your weekend. There, you can purchase raffle tickets for the 2013 Mercedes-Benz C250 Coupe. Bid on silent auction items a full day before anyone else (including more than 25 Friday-only travel packages). And enjoy live entertainment.
Oh, there will be featured vodka cocktails and martinis, compliments of Grey Goose Vodka. (How could we have overlooked that tiny detail?)
Best of all, the dress code is simply business casual or festive attire.
You know, in case your bow tie’s still at the dry cleaners.
