Attendees can expect exclusive chance drawings, live entertainment from DJ Truth, an open bar with beer and wine, and food stations catered by Sarasota Catering Company. 

Pop-up shopping from Lilly Pulitzer and artist Chelsea Hill, who specializes in custom champagne bottles and coastal inspired designs, will benefit the Junior League of Sarasota.
