||The Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego's 33rd annual Monte Carlo gala will be a night of high style-revelry on Saturday, September 12, 2009 at MCASD's oceanfront La Jolla location.
Selected by event chairs Nancy and Matt Browar, this year's theme -- Club Monte Carlo -- will transform the Museum's galleries into a multi-level club with an eco-chic feel, featuring live DJs, a sultry stage show, charity gaming tables, and many other surprises. All proceeds from the night's festivities will benefit the Museum's education programs and exhibitions.
Starting at 7 pm, gala guests will see and be seen at a stylish cocktail hour with champagne, specially crafted hors d'oeuvres, and a caviar and oyster bar, followed by dinner (featuring local sustainable cuisine by Waters Fine Catering) in the stunning private Dining Lounge.
Late night (from 9:30 pm to 1 am), step behind the velvet ropes for The After Party, where the bouncers call the shots at the door, and the dance floor is all yours. Take a break in the Zen-inspired Buddha Lounge, grab a breath of fresh air at the roaming oxygen bars, or double down with the high-rollers at the charity gaming tables, among many other surprises.
