Enter the flamboyant world of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s 1920’s classic, The Great Gatsby, for the benefit of Windy Hill Foundation. Arrive in the utmost style at Salamander Resort & Spa, enter amidst the shining lights and flashing cameras to sip champagne, feast on culinary delights and dance with abandon circa the roaring 20s.
Friday night, November 17th is your chance to dress with finesse and party all for Middleburg’s own Windy Hill Foundation’s extraordinarily important mission to provide affordable housing and educational opportunities to members of our community.
Offering services to children through seniors, Windy Hill has grown in 36 years to become a model for what can and should be done to elevate the less fortunate to upward mobility and security within our society. Proceeds from the evening will go towards existing programs and for the establishment of scholarships so that residents who want to go further in their vocational or collegiate educations can do so.
Not unlike the dreams of Nick and his mysterious millionaire neighbor, Jay Gatsby. Can you flirt like Daisy and feel at home in the opulence of West Egg? Are you an incurable romantic or in pursuit of the highlife? Do you prefer the unknown to the known? Then this is your night!
Your hosts have planned an exceptional evening of fun reminiscent of the days of bootleggers, supper clubs and big bands to sweep you onto the floor. None other than Doc Scantlin & His Imperial Palms Orchestra, dubbed the best band in America by Forbes, will be there to get you on your feet. And, Brian Damewood of Damewood Auctioneers will help all those irresistible items waiting to be generously bid upon find their match~ Want to make every moment count? Stay over for the night in one of Salamander’s sumptuous rooms, available at special rates when booked by October 31st.
Follow Gatsby on social media and don’t wait to reserve your tickets, as this event sold out last year! Not sure what to wear? Remember this was the era of “anything goes!” ML
