GALA F.A.Q page

What is a table of 10? How is this possible virtually?

“Virtual Tables” are groups of 10 that will get their own private chat room at the end of the event. (we were originally going to hold it at the beginning of the event, but this way we can keep it open longer.)  The table guests are pre-assigned to a chat room with their Table Host/Hostess. Each host will either run ice breaker games, or bring in the bar tender, or just lead a chat.

What is the VIP Party?  Will it be fun?

The Vip party will be a half hour party before the main event, that features music, chat, bar tenders and fab prizes.  It’s a chance to see all your friends and check out what they are wearing.

What do we wear to this online Gala?  Do we have to dress up?

Sequins & Sweats means dress to impress on top and dress to be comfy on the bottom.   This is our new fashion life on Zoom. There will be a prize for the best Virtual Gala Ensemble.

Tiaras are optional.

Pants are NOT.

What about dinner?  Drinks?

You provide your own dinner and ingredients for drinks and dessert.  We will have several bartenders teaching how to make fancy drinks, and a chef will teach you how to make flaming Bananas Foster for dessert.  Check out our recipe page for ideas for a New Orleans Dinner.  (The Awards Jury is from New Orleans.)
