COVID -19 Update: Tables at the Gala are normally seated for 10 with 2 seats reserved for law enforcement and 8 seats for the sponsor. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we may need to adjust our seating plan at sponsored tables by seating law enforcement guests separately. If this occurs the sponsored table will still be allowed, 8 guests. The law enforcement-sponsored seats may be seated separately to accommodate social distancing for our guests.
