The Venue: The Deromedis offered tours of their English garden and newly reconstructed Jens Jensen woodlands, while a quartet of students from Midwest Young Artists entertained.
The End Result: The event generated excitement for the upcoming gala and announced Graff Diamonds as the leading sponsor.
