This annual event benefits The Light House, a homeless prevention support center in Annapolis, Maryland and will take place from 7-10 PM at the Loews Annapolis Hotel. Highlighting this year’s long-standing traditional event is a new twist, “A Blue Tie Event”. Attendees are encouraged to wear blue to support The Light House.

For $25 attendees will have the chance to win jewelry, valued up to $500 donated by Blanca Flor Silver Jewelry in downtown Annapolis. We are also delighted to announce that Dr. Angela Ponatoski and her husband Edward Ponatoski , both of Anne Arundel Dermatology have generously agreed to be our Gold Level Sponsor.
