YAMs know how to party with Black and White Gala

Posted By on Tue, Nov 9, 2010 at 5:36 PM


If you never had the honor of attending Truman Capote’s 1966 masquerade ball — and let's face it, how many of us really have? — then the Black and White Gala, brought to you by the Young Affiliates of the Mint, is the next best thing. The night of Nov. 12 promises to be an elegant soiree “that even the famed author would be proud of.” Feast your eyes on heavy hors d’oeuvres and cocktails and indulge yourself with lavish gifts in the silent auction. The affair will help bring world-renowned artist, Tetsunori Kawana, master of the Japanese art of flower arrangement, to the Mint Museum Uptown, where the event will be held. His larger-than-life work, planned for installment in the Mint, will take the shape of a large-scale, eye-catching bamboo creation. It's sure to be a roaring good time.

Ticket Price: $70 for members; $95 for non-members.

Time: 7 p.m.

Place: The Mint Museum Uptown, 550 S. Tryon St.

Attire: Black and white cocktail attire.
