WILLIAMSBURG — The Greater Williamsburg Chamber of Commerce has announced the return of its signature Gala on Saturday, March 25 at the William & Mary Alumni House.

The theme, “An Evening in Old Hollywood,” is a black-tie-optional affair that will feature a walk down the red carpet, a welcome reception with cocktails and live music, dinner, and dancing.

The evening will begin with a welcome reception featuring live piano and photo ops, and the evening will include a two-course plated dinner, three champagne toasts, and a dessert bar with music from 504 Supreme.
