Join the Arts Council of Princeton for an evening of friends, food and fine wine at their annual fall fundraiser, Dining by Design on Saturday, Oct. 28 at the Frick Chemistry Laboratory on the campus of Princeton University. Funds raised support high quality arts programs that enrich the lives of underserved youth and seniors.
The evening features cocktails and outstanding hors d’oeuvres, dinner and dessert catered by Jules Boutique Catering, wine-pairings, fabulous party boards, an exciting live auction with renowned special guest auctioneer, Sebastian Clarke of Rago Auctions and Antiques Roadshow, a live dance performance curated by Dawn Berman of The Pennington Studio in Pennington, New Jersey, and more.
“The gala’s theme, ‘Edge of Dawn,’ was inspired by the daily if not hourly contradictions we face and the decisions we need to make that are not as black-and-white as we hope. This led us to the Garden of Eden and the decisions that were made and the consequences of those decisions,” said Dina Riad of Dina Riad Interiors who will transform the space at Frick Chemistry Laboratory into a modern Garden of Eden.
