The "sprawling, elegant Hall residence" will be the scene of this weekend's fund raiser for the Animal Care Center, according to a news release from the ACC.
Go Wild for the Animals is the theme of this year's soiree.
Guests are being encouraged to wear "animal-inspired clothing." Otherwise, dress will be what's called island fancy or Jungle Formal. Tickets are $125 at the door and 150 will be sold. Ticket holders have a chance to win vacations, a custom oil painting, and catered meals.
The villa sounds fantastic, almost worth the price of admission just to see it, never mind the food, drinks and good times. The ACC says guests will be greeted by a "fountained courtyard … a two-level pool, poolside bars and large decks."
The Inquiring Iguana encourages island visitors to attend events like this, and not just to support the good causes. Meeting and greeting locals is a wonderful way to feel at home on the island and to get a sense of the warmth and dedication of St. John's residents.
