What is a Piccadilly Gala?!
The Piccadilly Gala is a Ladies Night Out and auction benefit for Downtown Alive! This year’s theme is Ladies in ParaDice. We invite you to a tropical casino-themed night where ladies get to go out, have fun, win prizes and be waited on by the men in our community. Attire is semi-formal; think glamorous Bahamas flair!
Piccadilly Quarter Auction
Piccadilly is a high-energy auction where you could win hundreds of dollars of gifts for only a few quarters! Each guest will have a paddle number assigned to them to bid on items. Items will be presented for a bid, along with the designated bid amount ($0.25 to $3 per bid). If you wish to bid, drop the designated amount in the bucket on your table and hold up your paddle number. A number will be drawn (bingo style) and announced; if the person with that paddle number bid on the item, she is the winner!
Eat, Drink and Celebrate
Dinner will be provided by the wonderful chefs at the Adams Pointe Conference Center. A full cash bar will be available. Cash bar, silent auction, live Piccadilly auction and more! Don’t forget your quarters for the Piccadilly Auction!
