Gala Dinner

They tell us we throw a mean party. This year, that’s literally true.

 

Villain1

This year we're calling all villains!

Villain2

Fairyland fans dressed in fiendish finery.

PQP3

Princesses, evil queens and pirates galore.

Best Costume

It's always hard to choose the best costume…

Food

There will be fabulous food and drink.

Support

Your support makes all the difference!

Magical Night

A magical night will be had by all.

On Thursday, June 5, we’re going over to the dark side.

A Villain-thropic Evening, our 19th annual gala fundraising dinner, is a salute to the ogres, witches, trolls, wicked stepmothers, and all the other baddies without whom fairy tales
would be ... meh.

Your presence isn’t just requested. It’s required.

Scary costumes. Shivery music. Food to die for. Our legendary storybook sets. All of it under the cold, glittering stars. (We’ll try to arrange for fog.)
