Reminder on attire:
Our Gala is not a black-tie event. Many of the attendees do dress up. I was told, at my first gala, it’s not black-tie, but women wear their jewels. Men arrive in suits with tie, suit jackets with ties, suit jackets without ties, etc. Women generally are a little more dressed up than the men.
You can check out our Facebook page for pictures from previous CotY Galas. Or, here is a page with some information, https://rtrshift.com/what-to-wear-to-a-gala/ for the women.
Hope this helps you as you pick out your attire for the evening.
