Several hundred well-dressed art lovers turned out for the Marco Island Center for the Arts' biggest fundraiser of the year, a gala masquerade ball at the Island Country Club.

Jim and Allyson Richards chaired the benefit. Cochairs were Dave and Tiffany Homuth. Honorary chairs were Bob and Moya Chase. Presenting sponsor was BMO Harris Private Bank.

The benefit featured a formal sit-down dinner, live music and a silent auction.

Members of the Marco Island Charter Middle School jazz band provided before-party music as attendees arrived.
