Black & White Masquerade Gala

August 27, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 11:00 pm


Essex Auxiliary of Child and Family Agency to Hold Black and White Masquerade Gala on August 27th

On August 27th, 2016 the Essex Auxiliary of Child and Family Agency will hold a Black and White Masquerade Gala on beautiful Griswold Point in Old Lyme, CT to benefit Child and Family Agency of Southeastern Connecticut.

Our inspiration for this event is Truman Capote’s “Party of the Century” held exactly 50 years ago in 1966. Dust off your black tie apparel, don your mask, and step back in time with us to a more glamorous era as we enjoy an evening filled with music, champagne, dancing and good company. Capote’s party was held in honor of newspaper legend Katherine Graham. This gala will be in honor of Child and Family’s own Alva Gimbel Greenberg, who was the editor of the former Gazette newspaper in Old Lyme and longtime Child and Family Agency volunteer. Griswold Point will provide the perfect backdrop as we begin with cocktails on the gorgeous lawn with sweeping views to where the Connecticut River meets Long Island Sound. After we take in a glorious sunset from this perfect vantage point, the remainder of the evening will be devoted to a delicious al fresco dinner and some seriously fun dancing. Seating for this event will be limited. Tickets can be purchased at the CHILD & FAMILY AGENCY WEBSITE or CLICK HERE.

Child and Family Agency of Southeastern Connecticut’s programs provide services that address children’s health care, childcare, children’s mental health, child abuse prevention, the treatment of family violence, accident prevention, and parent education.

Major support for this event was provided by Essex Savings Bank and Essex Financial Services.
