Yes, it’s true, you can dress up for Auction Night 2008. Read our recent post, Get Your 70’s Costumes Lined Up!, for costume ideas. Although this year’s theme is “Strawberry Night Fever” we’re looking to see many of you sporting all of the the hippest styles from the 70’s whether it’s the peace loving grooving hippies from the early 70’s to the swinging disco dancers from the Studio 54 era of the late 70’s. This was an era of big hair, big collars, and big attitude. (Remember that this is a no stress night. Casual dress is acceptable if you don’t feel up to it. However, please wear a smile and dress to boogie!)
