The 32nd annual Night of a Thousand Gowns featured a masquerade carnival theme laced with the opulence expected from New York’s Imperial Court. One of the most extravagant and decadent recurring charity events on the planet was packed with royalty, excitement, entertainment and effervescence.

The event benefited God’s Love We Deliver, which has already raised $150,000 from the event.

The event saw the reign end for Emperor XXVl, Harrington, and Regent Empress XXXl, Madison Mansfield, and welcomed the new Empress XXXll, Gayle Banter, and Regent Emperor XXVll, Rob Hunter de Woofs. President Mark Costanzo spoke, and there were inspiring, strong performances from Beth Ann Sacks and Dawn Tallman. Food and drink was abundant, as was fun and gaiety.

Ultimately it was a night of celebration and glamour that the Imperial Court of New York can be proud of.
