2. What should I wear?

Most of our guests will wear semi-formal or formal attire. Ladies will most likely be in dresses, while men will most likely be in dress pants and a shirt. Renting a tux is not necessary, but you may do so if you wish. We will provide the boutonnieres and corsages!! 


3. Can guests be dropped off? Or do I need to stay with them?

Guests can be dropped off! Many will choose to drop off guests, enjoy an evening away, and return to pick them up at 9:00pm.​Others will choose to enjoy the caregiver room on site.​Some may choose to remain by the guest's side all evening. 


​4. How does the "buddy" system work?

Each guest will be paired with a volunteer "buddy" as soon as they arrive and will spend the remainder of the evening with them. Their "buddy" will serve as a guide and friend throughout the night. The volunteer will help guide the guest, assist with dinner, and of course be an excellent dancing partner!
