Old Hollywood comes to Boston.

Join Honorary Event Chairs, Patriots player Steve Gregory and his wife, Rosanne, along with more than 400 of Boston's young professionals at United Way's 6th Annual Emerging Leaders Gala. Hosted by Kiss 108's Rich DiMare, enjoy an evening of hors d'oeuvres, cocktails and dancing reminiscent of your favorite classic feature film. Fantastic silent auction items will be available and all money raised will support youth in our community.

Dress: Vintage Hollywood cocktail or formal attire is suggested, but is not required. Ladies, think of the classics from Hollywood's Golden Age, such as Bette Davis, Greta Garbo and Audrey Hepburn. Gentlemen, arrive in style similar to the famous Fred Astaire, Clark Gable and Gene Kelly.

Directions to Space 57 and parking information can be found here: http://www.reverehotel.com/#findus

Drink Sponsors: Berkshire Mountain Distillers and Narragansett Beer have generously donated drink options for an open cocktail hour from 7:00-9:00pm.
