Almost everyone, at some point in their formative years, has fantasized about becoming a "Great American Hero". Some of them do go on to join the Army, Navy or Special Operations forces and become exactly that. And when these heroes fall, it comes time for someone to step up for the ones they've left behind. That's where the Red Circle Foundation Gala comes in...your chance to be a hero's hero.
The Red Circle Foundation Gala
The Red Circle Foundation, founded in 2012 by former US Navy SEAL Brandon Webb, provides enrichment scholarships for children of Special Operators and emergency gap funding for the families of wounded and fallen heroes, which covers medical, memorial and household expenses for the first 90 days.
The Red Circle Foundation Gala is the Foundation's chance to raise a large amount of money in a single night, while honoring those who place themselves in harm's way. This year, the fundraiser will be taking place on September 6 (Saturday) at the Birch Aquarium in La Jolla, with the VIP Cocktail Reception beginning at 6PM and general admission at 7PM. Their aim?...raising $75,000.
The evening will see cocktails, dinner, a live auction, and addresses by noted guests and luminaries including Mike Ritland, former Navy SEAL and author of Trident K9 Warriors, and Navy SEAL Dogs.
Dressing for the "Black Tie Bravery" event
As a black tie event, men are expected to wear full black tuxedos (although a midnight blue tux is also acceptable, if you can pull it off), with black, shines dress shoes. The thing to remember is to match your cufflinks to the shirt button studs, with the metal matching your wrist watch (as closely as possible).
For tips on how to dress for a black tie event, visit this link. Here are some potential cufflink options for this evening:
Onyx Diamond Yellow Gold Cufflinks
White Gold Tiger Eye Cufflinks
Rose Gold Black Agate Cufflinks
Ladies mostly wear floor length gowns in rich colors (although black has an elegance that makes it an eternal favorite) paired with satin or beaded shoes and clutches, and sparkly jewelry...on a night like this, the more shine, the better it is!
We can definitely help you out with finding the perfect sparkle for this lovely evening. Whether you're looking for something out-and-out statement, or an elegant gleam, we're definitely going to have something that matches your outfit to perfection.
