Grab your favorite boots – hikers, cowboy or rubber – and your bow ties and dresses for a night of fun!

Who:  Friends and businesses who share MSHI’s enthusiasm for the Pacific Northwest’s youngest and most active volcano.

What:  At MSHI, we like to do things differently, and it starts with your attire for the evening ~ a combination of cocktail attire and outdoor gear. Ideas include: mud boots with dresses, suits and snorkels, gowns and get the picture! Consider adding harnesses, helmets, hiking boots, and headlamps to spice up any outfit.
