WHAT TO WEAR:

It's not our style to go with a formal attire, so our gala dress is a little between denim & diamonds and black tie. We call it COUNTRY CHIC OR COCKTAIL. 

Ladies - that little black dress, cocktail dresses, dress pants, jumpsuits are all acceptable. HEELS and cute shoes are a must with that amazing bit of jewelry from places like Kendra Scott in Green Hills! Shout out KS jewelry for donating a nice piece to our auction! 

Gents - button up shirt, jeans, jacket optional...cowboy hat? We say YES, if it's your thing!
