Dewey Business Partnership Winter Gala set for Feb. 22

The Dewey Business Partnership will host its annual Winter Gala at 8 p.m. Feb. 22 at the new Lighthouse Cove, 1301 Coastal Highway, Dewey Beach.

This intersectional party intends to bring together the town for a single event for all to enjoy — local business owners, property owners, town employees and commissioners, coming together to volunteer time and resources for a grand occasion.

A decade ago, Steve “Monty” Montgomery, owner of the Starboard Restaurant, started the Winter Gala as a way to come together in celebration during the shoulder season, and raise money for town projects. He quickly merged his gala with the Dewey Business Partnership to involve more businesses and expand his initial vision.

“There is nothing that makes me happier than partying with a purpose, and bringing people together,” said Montgomery. “The gala is another way we do that, so get your fancy dresses and suits out, and come party with us.”

This year’s theme is “Vegas,” and the Starboard and Starboard Raw, Woody's Grille, Grotto Pizza, Hammerheads, Nalu, Dewey Beer Company, Gary's, Sirvida, Mezcali and host venue the Hyatt Place/Lighthouse and Events Center, provide food and drink. Entertainment will include Paul Ruggerio's Blue Cats Blues Band, Amish Outlaws and Dewey favorite Kristen and the Noise.

Tickets are $90.
