Please bring a valid photo ID and proof of COVID-19 vaccination (vaccination card or state phone application i.e. Excelsior Pass). Guests without these items will not be admitted.

* All in-person guests are encouraged to get a booster shot before attending the Gala.



Masks are required upon entering the building. We strongly recommend all guests to wear a surgical or medical mask in all indoor public spaces whenever not actively eating or drinking. All vendors and onsite staff will wear masks for your safety. Masks will also be provided at the check-in table for your convenience.


Social distancing:

We have taken steps to ensure proper spacing between guests to avoid overcrowding, including adding distance between tables and in the cocktail areas. Attendees are discouraged from partaking in any close physical greetings including handshakes and hugs etc. Hand sanitizers will be provided across the venue during the event.


Virtual live stream: (for general guests)

Unvaccinated individuals, anyone feeling ill, or those who prefer not to attend in person are encouraged to tune in via our virtual attendance link that will be available to all of our friends online. The Gala will be live-streamed on the event date.
