DLC Magical Musical Tour
Music, dancing and fundraising was at the forefront of the David Lawrence Center Magical Musical Tour: Dancing Through the Decades signature gala held in January at The Ritz-Carlton, Naples Beach Resort.
From the décor and the highly sought-after, 13-piece band to the auction items and menu, the gala committee outdid themselves. The memorable evening was filled with dancing, music and entertainment inspired by the 1960s to today in celebration of the
Center’s nearly 50 years of serving the mental health and addiction services needs of our community. Guests, all decked out in decade-inspired cocktail attire, spent the evening shimmying to blasts from the past and today’s best party music and bidding
in support of children’s mental health. To help people travel back in time, the Atlanta-based band, Big Swing and the Ballroom Blasters changed outfits three times to reflect the passing decades and the creative décor included Rubik's Cubes, disco balls and go-go boots.
The committee promised a fun, inspiring and interactive experience and they delivered! More than 300 people attended the gala and, along with our sponsors, helped raise $277,000 exceeded our fundraising goal of $250,000.
