Rick Braun’s New Year’s Eve

More Information


  • Seven hours of music over two days that will keep you on your feet!
  • A gourmet meal, champagne midnight toast and even more dancing.
  • The large reception area with entertainment and passed appetizers to start your night.  And of course, music and some fun!
  • The event raises funds for families affected by autism and an additional charity to be determined.
  • And because everyone continues to love the more casual event the night before, we are once again providing a show at the resort on December 30 only for our New Year’s Eve attendees. This show stars none other than Peter White this year!  Come make it a long holiday in the sun to start the New Year.  (Link to purchase tickets for Start the Party Early with Peter White available in your confirmation of your ticket purchase for the main show.)
  • A celebrity golf tournament with Rick Braun (and other surprises) – Scramble Play with Cart, Goodie Bag, Hats, a Meet and Greet with Rick, and a chance to help us raise more funds for our charities.  You will be able to register for the golf tournament in the fall…when you are ready to think about it. Stay tuned for more information.
  • Spa and Golf Discounts will be available.  The resort is offering a 20% discount on spa treatments, and golf is offered at $90 before 2 PM and $70 after 2 PM.
  • Reserved seating for both the main show and Start the Party Early – so NO lines!
  • Scanning your tickets for entry – so really no lines!  That worked great last year.
  • You keep loving the themes to the event, so this year it is a Rat Pack influence!
  • And in keeping with that theme, there will be a Rat Pack (think Vegas, Palm Springs, and Hollywood) influence in the décor, dinner and appetizers.
  • The ability to order your wine by the bottle for purchase PRIOR to the event so it will be available for you at dinner.
  • The Silent Auction is back!  Jazz festivals, great vacation stays, and much more…
  • Ability to pre-purchase an event shirt (remember how you wished you would have bought one last year?!) in the fall.  Stay tuned for that.
  • And even more in keeping with the Rat Pack theme you might even want to wear our all black look this year just for fun!  Totally optional, but who doesn’t love a black dress?
  • See below for timeline and menu.

To Be Announced


We get a lot of questions about this…so here you go! Normally ladies wear cocktail attire (pants or dresses) and many wear long dresses. Men normally wear suits and some wear tuxedos. You can dress any way you would like, but it is New Year’s Eve, so please no jeans or tee shirts.
