Think long Versace gowns and strappy, diamond-studded stilettos on svelte figures of movie icons. Imagine men of stage and screen in Armani and Ralph Lauren tuxedos, their hair freshly trimmed and smelling of expensive cologne.
Now picture yourself walking the red carpet next to those famous screen stars. Parrarrazzo snap pictures as the lights of the cameras flash in rapid succession. No, you’re not at a fancy Hollywood premiere but you might as well be with all the excitement in the air.
Don your most glamorous red carpet cocktail attire! You’ve just entered the world of high fashion, big screen regalia and a place where tantalizing aromas of the finest wines waft through the elaborately decorated ballroom. You are at Biloxi Chamber of Commerce’s UNCORKED: Hollywood & Vines event at IP Casino Resort & Spa.
The evening of April 22nd, 2014 will be one for the record books as the Biloxi Chamber of Commerce and IP Casino Resort and Spa present this very special gala to benefit the community.
The event begins at 6 p.m. and runs until 8 p.m. Proceeds will benefit the Biloxi Chamber so they can award Small Business Grants of up to $15,000 and scholarships of $5,000 in 2014.
The Re-Occupancy Grant program encourages businesses to locate in Biloxi and occupy vacant space. The Junior Leadership Program provides complimentary leadership development to 9th graders at St. Patrick Catholic high School and Biloxi High School.
The Biloxi Chamber also has a scholarship program for graduating seniors.
Sponsorship tickets are available at the $500 Silver medal and $2000 Gold medal levels. Individual tickets are only $40. A sponsorship at the $500 level will receive 4 tickets to the event, entry into the Private Tasting one hour prior to the event, 4 premium seats and a ¼ page ad in the event program with the company name featured in press releases on the website and in promotions for the evening.
At the $2000 Gold medal level, sponsors will receive all of the above with an additional 8 tickets and 8 premium seats added to the package and a full page ad.
