WOW! Another amazing Gatsby Gala this year! Check out the below excerpt from Style Girl Jess James’ website:
At Jess James’ 4th annual Great Gatsby Gala presented by Pat Kusek of Kusek Financial Group at The City Club, guests enjoyed delicious food, Prohibition era cocktails, 1920‘s live music in the garden and in the mansion with Chanteuse Nnenne Terzian and The Justin Lacy Swingtet and the chance to become a member of The City Club at an incredible savings with a VIP ticket.
Coveted prizes were awarded for the “Bee’s Knee’s” best dressed contest and names were drawn for the silent auction benefiting our local Make A Wish.
Gatsby models were styled by Jess James in 1920‘s finery from aMuse, A Second Time Around, Lumina Gem & Cape Fear Formal Wear with hair by Rockin’ Roller Salon and Makeup by Amy Kennison. Jazz Age dancers shook their fringe and bared their knee-highs doing The Charleston while members and VIP guests took in the burlesque show in the speakeasy below.
Artist Kat Christian sketched portraits in the garden while Cammeron Batanides worked on a live painting encompassing the joie de vivre of the enchanting evening set off with twinkling Edison lights in the garden and beaded curtains throughout the mansion via Kickstand Events.
