We kick off the night at 6:00 p.m. with cocktails and appetizers at the home of Becky and Dary Mozaffarian. Then at 8 p.m. we divide into smaller groups for dinner at the homes of local Zervas families. We meet up again as a big group for dessert at a surprise home that will be revealed that evening. It is a wonderful way to get to know other Zervas parents better and make new friends!

We look forward to seeing you all!
