How many people will be seated at each table and how do I request who I’d like to sit with?

You can “create your own table” by inviting some of your NPAP colleagues and their guests to share a table with you. Let Ann Rose Simon know the names of the people at your table. Tables will seat 10 people, but if you have fewer than 10, Ann Rose will be delighted to help you find other people to fill your table. If you don’t want to create a table, but prefer to be seated at any welcoming table, Ann Rose will help you find a good match. Call or text Ann Rose at 914 584-1968.

What is the dress code for the gala?

Cocktail attire is the dress code. Cocktail attire aims to strike a balance between formal and casual, as well as elegant and comfortable. For an event with this dress code, such as a wedding, men typically wear a suit and tie while women wear a cocktail dress.
