What to Wear
MASQUERADE is a formal event, but as far as what we recommend for attire, the possibilities are endless! Whether you are inspired by the extravagant masquerades of Marie Antoinette’s 18th Century France or you tend to gravitate to the cool clean lines seen at Truman Capote’s 1966 Black and White Ball, we just ask that you embrace the air of mystery and come with a mask.
Why We Gather
On Saturday, April 14, 2018, guests that include top entrepreneurs, attorneys, corporate vice presidents, managers and other community leaders will come together at The Black Swan to support our charitable efforts. Our goal is to continue to provide ample funds to organizations that seek our assistance. This exclusive event is possible through sponsorship opportunities, event ticket sales and an assortment of live and silent auction packages from renowned companies and destinations.
We invite you to read more about the organizations we support. In addition to these worthy organizations, twenty-five percent of funds raised at the Gala are granted to the Village of Elm Grove, funding various public initiatives designed to make our community a stronger, safer, and more beautiful place to work and live.
