NACE brought a Mardi Gras Masquerade style Christmas Party to the Hilton Clearwater Beach Resort & Spa. Guests arrived in dazzling attire and masks. They were treated to dainty appetizers and cocktails until the main ballroom opened to all. 

The evening kicked off in the ballroom with live music by one of the amazing Breezin’ Entertainment jazz and soul bands. Guests enjoyed New Orleans-style gumbo, oysters, freshly carved ham, and turkey. Can't forget to mention the desserts: mini cherry cheesecakes, gingerbread, spiked desserts from the Cake Zone, and even hot chocolate with mini marshmallows.

After enjoying such tasty treats, the new NACE board was inducted in front of all guests. Post-inductions, all guests celebrated the evening by dancing the night away to both the Breezin band and Grant Hemond DJ. 

Congratulations to all of our new NACE board members! We had a wonderful time being a part of this fantastic event!”
