Guests will hear from some of the ‘54 legends as well.

The reception begins at 6:30 p.m., followed by a 7 p.m. dinner and speakers. Guests will have the opportunity to mingle and dine with the Milan ‘54 legends and others. A silent auction will also be held, featuring a large assortment of autographed memorabilia and photographs.
