Tickets are on sale now for the 16th annual Black Tie and Diamonds Gala hosted by the Rotary Club of Annapolis. The benefit will be held from 6:00pm to 11:00pm on Saturday, March 2, at the Hotel Annapolis (formerly the Loews of Annapolis) at 126 West Street in Annapolis. Valet parking will be available.
Guests can enjoy an open bar and hors d’oeuvres while browsing a silent auction with many great items up for bid. A seated dinner with a live auction will follow. There will be special items, exciting trips, and a signature diamond piece donated by Zachary’s. The evening will be topped with a decadent dessert and dancing to music by C&J Entertainment.
Annually, the Rotary Club of Annapolis selects a charity to benefit from the proceeds. This year, the beneficiary is Partners in Care, which services Anne Arundel County, Easton and Frederick. Founded in 1993, Partners in Care is a community nonprofit that empowers older adults to remain independent in their own homes. Using time exchange, the organization provides transportation, minor home repairs, civic engagement and advocacy via volunteer members. Participants contribute to the well-being of each other. Contact 410-544-4800 or visit www.partnersincare.org for information.
Gala tickets are $150 per person and $1,500 for a table of 10. It is possible to select a table in the ballroom. To purchase, contact Sue Weber at 410-507-6020 or email her at email@example.com or visit www.annapolisrotary.org and click on “events.”
