You will be enjoying an interactive outdoor cocktail hour followed by a short hike up to our luxe, heated tent for dinner, so please be sure to wear comfortable shoes and layers.
Remember that there will be the option to have your portrait taken with the stunning backdrop of the Pacific Ocean - something to consider when choosing your outfit!
Please reach out to Isabel McComish at firstname.lastname@example.org to explore options for subsidized tickets.
We strive to host inclusive, accessible events that enable all individuals, including individuals with disabilities, to engage fully.
Given our location in a national park, there is some uneven terrain. Dinner is a short uphill walk from the reception and a shuttle will be available to transport individuals to dinner. Please let us know if you have specific concerns and we will do our best to accommodate them.
Valet parking is provided.
