This year, we will once again benefit a local Orange County group, CASA, which is dedicated to helping children in need," commented Director of Operations John Nye. "With expectations set high for this year's event, we are going to focus on sourcing an incredible array of fresh oysters, pouring terrific champagnes, wines and spirits, and presenting lively entertainers, including the talented Addie Hamilton, who joins us again this year! As always, guests can look forward to a few surprises along the way."
