I’m putting on my top hat,
Tying up my white tie,
Brushing off my tails.
It’s time to don those hats! Show your creativity and you may win a prize. The Hatter’s Ball will be held on Friday, March 9, with the proceeds going to support scholarships for the Creative Arts Summer Camp. Donnie Wahlberg, who stars as a New York police detective on CBS TV’s Blue Bloods, will be honored with an award presented by Kevin Wade, Blue Bloods’s writer and executive producer.
“This is a wonderful event and a great way to help a child this summer,” says Suzanne Clifton Walsh, director of Creative Arts and a former Woman Around Town. (Click on her name to read her profile). Walsh invites everyone to join in the festivities at the landmark Burden Mansion on Fifth Avenue “for an evening of incredible prizes for best hats, amazing silent auction items and a live band!”
The evening’s emphasis is definitely on “creative,” with partygoers expected to arrive with elaborately decorated hats. Grand prize for the best hat will be a trip for two to Anguilla.
The top raffle prize will be $10,00 with only 300 tickets being sold. Silent auction items include a trip to Bermuda, fabulous dinners, and theater tickets.
Tickets are still available. For more information go to the Creative Arts website.
