Although we are serious about raising funds for AIM, the event will be a fun-filled evening where guests will enjoy a magical night of magnificent music, in an elegant setting -- up close and personal with these talented artists. All of our guest artists are performing at the benefit without a fee because they love children and want to do all that they can to help AIM provide more lifesaving services."
In addition, Ms. Hill noted that the evening will include a cocktail reception with heavy hors d'oeuvres, musical performances and a dessert buffet.
