Annual Champagne & Diamonds Fundraiser + Performance By Jimmy Wayne
The premier event is scheduled every year on Valentine’s Day and now in its fourteenth year. The Gala is held at the historic Cactus Hotel on Saturday, February 14, 2015, with an exclusive cocktail reception with Jimmy Wayne at 5:30 p.m. At 6:30, an unforgettable evening begins with music, cocktails, champagne, and dinner followed by a live and a silent auction.
The evening will sparkle with anticipation as glasses of champagne are sold in limited quantity for $100 each. One lucky winner will walk away with a glass of champagne containing the $5,000 one-carat diamond, generously donated by Mark Priest with Legend Jewelers. All remaining glasses will contain a one-carat cubic zirconia.
