Tickets are on sale for the OPUS for Person-to-Person spring Masquerade Ball to be held Saturday, April 21, at the newly renovated Country Club of Darien.
The ball’s proceeds will support Person-to-Person (P2P), specifically P2P’s programs directly benefitting children — including, Campership scholarships for children and youth in need, grants to families, the Holiday Toy Store, Baby Basics layettes for new mothers, and Scholarships for college.
Doors will open at 6 p.m., and guests in formal black and/or white attire will don masks as they sip cocktails overlooking the beautifully-manicured Country Club of Darien golf course.
After cocktail hour, guests will be seated at a gourmet dinner followed by dancing to the nationally acclaimed King of Hearts band. And for the first time this year, guests can plan on celebrating into the wee hours at the afterparty from 11 p.m. to 1 a.m. (admission to the afterparty is included in the ticket price).
A silent auction, raffle and live auction hosted by CK Swett will feature a variety of items including luxury vacation and golf packages, beauty/wellness indulgences, VIP sports experiences, entertaining couple and group adventures, and other fine goods.
For your convenience, tickets for the Masquerade Ball are available for purchase online, here. They are priced at $225 for Opus members and $250 for non-members and can be purchased individually or for tables of 12. Seating requests can be specified upon purchase.
