6:00pm  Cocktails and Farm-Fresh Hors D’oeuvres
Enjoy the operatic theme of the night as costumed servers hand you complimentary champagne. Begin your evening with gourmet appetizers prepared by Santa Fe’s master chefs who purchased directly from our farmers. The silent auction tables will be filled with unique, useful, and stunning donations that reflect the culture, history and experience of all things local. Spirited music and specialty cocktails created by sommelier Kate Gerwin round out the first hour!
