7–11:45 p.m.
Westminster Hall 

Hearts (and wings) were aflutter as more than 200 guests—who “flew” the extra mile with mythological costumes and their own faerie character names—descended on Westminster Hall for an evening of fun and fantasy last weekend. 

“Why do we do faeries?” said Nina Amaya, who started the annual event in 2015 and has been organizing it since. “Because after people meet their basic needs of food, safety, and shelter, they need flowers and love and imaginative fun.”

After an evening of dancing, dining, crowning a new king and queen, and even a little shopping, all of the guests also left with a feeling of having done good—with the evening’s proceeds benefitting the Ocean Renaissance Foundation.
