The evening begins at 6 p.m. with a sunset cocktail hour and complimentary Bacardi spirits followed by a five-course, sit down dinner.
Guests have a chance to bid on rare silent auction items including an autographed guitar from Jimmy Buffet, all-inclusive vacation packages, luxury jewelry, spa treatments and more.
