 Thursday, Sept 1
Great Gatsby Gala
The City Club


WHAT: Jess James, The City Club and Land Rover present Wilmington’s first Great Gatsby Gala inspired by the Great American Novel, forthcoming remake of the film (directed by Baz Luhrmann, this 3-D film will star Leonardo DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan) and the joie de vivre of the Jazz Age glamourized by Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald. This style-conscious event (transformed by Salt Harbor Designs) will include delicious food, live music by Benny Hill jazz trio and chanteuse Susan Savia, 1920’s inspired shopping with A Second Time Around, Cape Fear Jewelry and Ziabird. Exclusive giveaways, 1920s-inspired models, “best dressed” contest and Roaring Twenties reverie. The City Club will be offering an exclusive discount (over 80% off!) for membership sign-up for the night of the event only, as well as the “code word” into the Gatsby speakeasy.


WHEN: Thursday, September 1st (kick-off to Labor Day weeekend) from 7pm-10pm.
WHERE: The City Club at de Rosset / 23 South 2nd Street in Downtown Wilmington




WIN IT: Jonathan Nelson of J Nelson Designs (located inside Cape Fear Jewelry) has created a custom necklace made with a vintage 1920’s pendant valued at $1,750. Sponsored by Land Rover, this coveted raffle prize will raise funds for the DREAMS Center for Arts Education.

1920’s fabulous!
The evening will be captured by Lisa Brown of Bella Rose Photography and video coverage by The Three Divas

  2. Hi Laura,

    I’m so sorry I missed this but we will definitely keep you in mind for the next Gatsby Gala since this is an annual event. You should attend this year (Sept 20th) to check it out!
