Special Announcement: IMC reschedules Notte Bianca Gala

Due to tropical storm Elsa’s predicated path and impact on coastal RI & MA for this coming Friday (July 9), IMC’s Special Event Committee has determined to reschedule its NOTTE BIANCA annual summer Gala to Thursday July 29th.

The event location & time will remain as originally planned, and all current reservations and meal orders will be honored on the 29th.

Gala Committee Co-Chairs Barbara Caldwell & Kathy Kiven noted, “while we are not able to control mother nature, rest assured that we will deliver a stunning Notte Bianca on July 29th. We hope you will be able to revise your plans and we look forward to seeing you in Jonna Chewning’s Sheep Shed gardens at the end of the month!”

Existing reservations will be transferred to July 29—and guests will not need to take any further action at this time. You weren’t able to join us on the 9th—but you are available on July 29th—reserve your ticket now here!

The Silent Auction aligned with the Notte Bianca Gala has been extended through to Friday, July 30th. Bidding is open now. For information and to place a bid, go here!
