Darkness to Light transforming Marion Square into mini-Central Park for one night

Darkness to Light is hosting its 7th annual Circle of Light Gala, transforming Marion Square into a Central Park-themed night.

They talk a bit about the night:
This glamorous evening begins with specialty drinks at the SoHo Cocktail Party at 6:30. Guests will enjoy a silent auction and entertainment. Graffiti artists, break dancers and other street performers will engage guests in high energy acts. Sponsors and Zenith Club members will be escorted into the gala by horse and carriage.

Dinner will be prepared for 600 guests by 15 of Charleston's most talented and generous chefs under the main event tent. Once again, PDA's spectacular visual displays and Soiree's breathtaking decor will take guests a thousand miles away from Charleston. The night will also feature the big band sounds of The Joe Clark Orchestra and a surprise performance during the grand finale that will complete the New York experience. In the main event tent, guests will place their bid on the many luxurious live auction items including vacations to Cabo San Lucas, Costa Rica and Saint Marteen. Ten more incredible surprises await the auction bidders. One lucky person will also drive away in a brand new Volvo, generously donated by Volvo of North America.

The event is Thursday, November 20. Reservations are $300, and for an additional $10 you can enter a contest to win a new Volvo. Register online or call 843-965-5444 ext 21. The event kicks off at 6:30 p.m.
