You may think the Black Tie Dinner takes place on Saturday, but it has always begun with a discrete preview reception the night before, where folks can show up to check out the auction items and enjoy a little libation. Well, this year, BTD is making a bigger deal out of the preview, bringing in reality TV star Madison Hildebrand to M.C.
Hildebrand, one of the handsome gay Realtors on the Bravo reality series Million Dollar Listing, will host B4 Black, the preview party held at the Sheraton on Friday before BTD. He’ll be there, in part, to encourage attendees to buy raffle tickets for a 2013 Mercedes-Benz C250 Coupe; the winning ticket will be pulled at the dinner on Saturday, Nov. 3.
B4 Black takes place from 8 to 10 p.m. on Nov. 2.
