We are excited to announce the MADDY’S will be held February 23, 2013 at the Diamond Room (2340 W. Grand, Springfield, MO 65802) with live entertainment featuring the local favorite 50′s and 60′s rock n’ soul cover band, the Detectives!! Cocktail hour, hors d’oeuvres, and networking will be from 5:30pm-7pm with a full bar (cash or credit cards accepted), live music, and an award-winning gallery. A full buffet dinner (menu TBA) will be served starting at 7pm with the awards show starting at 7:30pm. Bottles of wine for your table will be available for purchase at the bar. Remember, this year’s theme is “the MADDYS,” which means we would love it if you would come dressed in your 1950′s and 1960′s formal attire. We will be having a best Don and best Betty Contest!!
