Get Ready to Gatsby!

Tuesday, May 28th, 2013

West Virginia Wesleyan College and St. Joseph’s Hospital is hosting its seventh annual Gala event on Friday, May 31 at The Gatsby Mansion at The Stonewall Resort in Roanoke, WV.  The event is being held as a fundraiser to benefit both organizations.

The theme this year is “The Great Gatsby,” a modern-day take on the F. Scott Fitzgerald novel. Step back into the Roaring Twenties when the jazz was hot, the cocktails are cold, and a party at Gatsby’s was the Cat’s Meow.  Your decadent evening begins at 6 p.m. as you follow the green light to the Mansion at West Egg. A scrumptious feast, casino gaming in the speakeasy, and live music await you.

This year, the East Egg Echelon sponsors are Dick and Carole Ralston and Friends, Energy Land and Mineral, and Pallottine Health Services, Inc. The West Egg Elite sponsors are The Dunn Family, Graystone Consulting, Harry Green Chevrolet, Premier Bank, Tuscany Gas, LLC, William ’58 and Mara Watson ’58, West Virginia Wesleyan College, and Robert L. Wharton Enterprises.

The event will consist of dinner, drinks, and dancing, as well as a casino and live and silent auctions.  Queen City Funk & Soul from Cumberland, MD will provide the music for the evening.  Tickets are $135 each, or $270 for a couple.
