The White Party 2019

Hosted by the Young Friends, the annual White Party is our biggest event of the year. Guests are encouraged to dress in white as they enjoy live music, live performers, drink specials, raffle, a photo booth, complimentary light bites and more. 100% of the proceeds from the door admission go toward The Wilkinson Center.
