With a wine and diamond pull, yummy appetizers from famous Memphis chef Kelly English, dancing and drinks, this event, hosted by Make-A-Wish Mid-South, will be an evening to remember, and all proceeds directly benefit the organization.
What to wear: This is what we like to call a creative cocktail look. It means something different for everyone, but we recommend a fun dress with a pair of heels and some bold jewelry to make a statement.

Up your Valentine’s chocolates this year with perfect pairings from Philip Ashley chocolates with select whiskeys, wines and craft beer. Hors d’oeuvres from Strano by Chef Josh and A Moveable Feast, along with a cigar and fireside cocktail lounge, will be featured.
What to wear: This event is more on the casual side, so we say either a casual dress paired with a fun handbag, or a pair of jeans with some statement jewelry and a comfy sweater!
