Guess Who's Coming to Dinner

Join BRAVO for a magical night at 
Guess who's coming to dinner


Join BRAVO for a magical evening filled with adventure & surprises! Come out and experience an evening of fine dining, premiere homes and engaging conversation: Guess Who's Coming To Dinner 2017 offers an intimate dining experience with eight to ten individuals in a private home. A touch of intrigue rounds out the appeal, as the mystery of where and with whom guests will dine will unfold at the evening's opening cocktail reception. A cash bar and hors d’oeuvres will be offered at the reception along with a silent auction full of fabulous must have items, plus a short awards ceremony honoring and celebrating excellence in our communities. This year, there will be an additional element of surprise added to the affair as we have a renowned magician that will be performing during the reception. At the conclusion of the opening reception, attendees with dinner tickets will be given directions to their destinations, where they will join dinner hosts and fellow diners.
