The glamour, the Jazz, the redefined American woman, the taboo speakeasies — who doesn’t want a flash of the Roaring Twenties? Then again, who says you can’t repeat the past? This Saturday, April 28, at 6 p.m., Historic Beaufort Foundation presents “The Great Gatsby Lafayette Soiree.”
The fundraiser soiree is promised to a “beautiful, elegant event,” according to Executive Director Julie Good. A large backdrop will set the scene at the residence of Dr. Bobby Bell — the historic “Tidewater” house on the Beaufort River, 302 Federal Street. Good says there will also be a speakeasy and a Roadster turned into a photo booth to set the 1920s mood. The event calls for cocktail attire, 1920’s glamour optional.
Aside from enjoying a night of dance, culinary specialties, cocktails and a live auction, The Great Gatsby Lafayette Soiree will have live music by Déjà vu. All proceeds generate funds for historic preservation efforts in Beaufort County.
“So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past,” concludes “The Great Gatsby,” the novel, touching on the significance of the past to dreams of the future. Help Historic Beaufort Foundation continue to preserve Beaufort’s history.
Tickets are $100 per person; $75 for those under 35-years-old. To reserve a sport or for details, call 843-379-3331.
