One of the easiest ways to give back is by attending a great gala. Supporting a worthwhile cause while sipping lovely cocktails, enjoying hors d’oeuvres and dressing up in our finest? It’s a no-brainer.

Celebrating its fifth season, The Frocktail Party hits all the above, with a healthy dose of fashion that takes this fundraiser to the next level. The evening raises funds for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (they’ve raised more than $140,000 to date), and was founded by Jessica Oliver, Ali Reid and Jen Foster.

Located at the stunning Arcadian Court, guests will enjoy catering from Oliver & Bonacini, delicious drinks, and fun extras, including shoe shines from John Allan’s, manicures by O.P.I. and eyelash services from Winks eyelash boutique.

The highlight of the evening is the live auction, where clothing, accessories and luxury experiences will go to the highest bidder. With stunning gowns from Marchesa, Jeremy Laing, Mary Katrantzou, Herve Leger and more, justify your need for a new party dress knowing that 100% of the proceeds go to the cause.

A few dresses that you’ll be fighting us for:
