A Gatsby Carnival 2017 Rocks the House

Volkswagen of St. Augustine hosted its fourth annual,“A Gatsby Carnival,” at the Lightner Museum on Saturday, April 29th, 2017 from 7 – 11 p.m. Guests were encouraged to get dressed in their finest 1920s attire. Two authentic, 1920s classic cars were onsite as part of the marked circus entrance. There was live music by Amy Hendrickson and the VooDoo Review, as well as local favorites Chelsea Saddler and Chris Kearns. This year’s event was held at the Lightner Museum, where a portion of the museum was open with local thespians performing around you while you strolled through the various exhibits. To boot, a moonshine bar and craft cocktails were present to accentuate the theme. There was also a spread of heavy hors d’oeuvres and a welcome cocktail that was included with entry. It was all about the show this year at Gatsby, and it was bigger and better than ever! 
Over the last three years, the event has raised over $25,000 to benefit local charities. This year, all proceeds will go to support local non-profit, SJCC (St. Johns Cultural Council). SJCC is active throughout St. Johns County furthering visual, literary and performing arts for students, the elderly, and aspiring artists who may not otherwise have had the ability to expand their creative outlets.
