Celebrate 30 years of AMSET at the Anniversary Gala! 

Professional photography will greet party-goers at the door with print-on-location keepsakes. Cocktail hour begins at 6:30 p.m., featuring a signature cocktail, the white Russian.  Fine Dining by Bando’s Catering will be served at 7:30 p.m., including appetizers, delectable entrees, and pearl-themed desserts.  Silent and live auctions featuring travel packages and beautiful art selections will keep party-goers enticed with dancing to follow.  The live, musical entertainment of Sharon Montgomery and the Golden Triangle All-Stars will set the tone for the evening.  Attire is black tie optional; guests are encouraged to don their pearls.
