The Original Black & White Ball
In 1966, the year Clare Hall was founded, Truman Capote hosted the “Party of the Century” in New York City’s Plaza Hotel. To celebrate Clare Hall’s 50th Anniversary, we will be recreating this spectacular event!
Take your style cues from Frank, Mia, Truman, and his ‘swans’!
Some pictures from the original B&W Ball
and a full night of dancing, drinks, NYC-inspired food, and more until 4 am
We'll also have live music, specialty cocktails, crafts, and games in our 60s Lounge after dinner
(Midnight - 2 am)
