Dress as you would like…. Toss on your ugliest holiday sweater, a whimsical hat or your basic organizer’s attire…all is welcome for the fun evening.

To make the evening even SWEETER, share your cooking skills in our second (kinda) annual Holiday TASTE-OFF. Amazing prizes will be awarded for the best cookie in two categories:
