This will be a networking opportunity for area businesspersons, while also raising money for a good cause. The evening will start off with a red-carpet entrance complete with photographers. Once inside, guests will be treated to cocktails, appetizers, and dessert. There will be a basket raffle and the screening of a movie.

Each guest will also receive a swag bag filled with promotional products, coupons, and various samples from Frankfort businesses.

Sponsorships are available from $100 up to $300. Sponsors will have the chance to place their items in the swag bags. Basket donations for the raffle are being accepted until February 23.
