The David Lawrence Center and Foundation’s 2015 destination themed annual gala, “Signatures of Greece, An Elegant Evening at the Parthenon,” will transport guests on a journey back in time to discover the immense beauty of Ancient Greece when artistic expression and the gayety of music danced along with its people through the streets. Cuisine, as colorful as it was delicious, adorned banquet tables while people gathered to ponder the vital issues of the day and benefit from their enlightened states of mind.
The evening’s suggested attire is elegant Grecian attire for the ladies and black tie for the gentlemen.
There will be endless opportunities to bid on luxurious silent and live auction lots while you dine on Greek inspired cuisine and dance the night away to live music performed by Wonderama.
Previous years’ events have been named the Best Themed Event by Gulfshore Life magazine, one of the Spring Season’s most memorable fundraising parties by Naples Illustrated magazine and Best Event Theme by The Journal.
All proceeds will benefit the mission, operations and expansion of the David Lawrence Center’s innovative, comprehensive prevention, intervention and treatment services for the one in four local children and adults who experience behavioral, emotional, psychological and substance abuse challenges.
