The night will feature a dazzling masquerade ball with costumed guests, live entertainment, and after-party. This year we are doing away with the extended program so you can have more time to network and rub elbows with friends, celebrities, and community leaders, or simply enjoy the museum exhibits and our special silent auction!

Volunteer of the Month: October


Wilson Kin lives his day to day life as an account manager at an website company. He works out in his off time to maintain a semblance of health while enjoying various local cuisines & libations just a bit more guilt free. Wilson also enjoys dabbling in photography. You can usually spot him with a retro looking Fujifilm camera during his weekend outings. This is his first year volunteering with PbP (credits to Patrick Lee, his cousin, for introducing Wilson to the organization)!
