NYE@MFA: Flights of Fancy
More than 400 guests attended the Museum of Fine Arts’ second annual New Year’s Eve dinner and party on Dec. 31, 2019 (and on into January 1, 2020). The theme was NYE@MFA: Flights of Fancy to coincide with the exhibition ‘The Grasshopper and the Ant and Other Stories, as told by Jennifer Angus. The dinner featured a cocktail hour under the stars and a four-course plated meal in the Marly Room, with entertainment by illusionist/mentalist Mio and master violinist Lemay Olano James. After dinner, DJ Anthony C of Inpulse Entertainment picked up the beat as guests enjoyed desserts, light bites, open bar, champagne and a viewing of the First Night St. Petersburg fireworks over the waterfront. Proceeds from the event support the MFA’s mission through exhibitions, programs and events for the community to enjoy.
