Party goers were encouraged to “pull out their best flapper or great gatsby” fashions for EHC’s annual summer gala held Saturday, August 24 at the Dawes House. This year EHC commemorated the 100th anniversary of the 18th amendment and the start of prohibition with “The Blind Pig Speakeasy”. Guests could visit the Temperance Tea Room (located outside on the loggia of the east terrace) for non-alcoholic refreshments, or go straight into the Dawes House to the “speakeasy” where alcoholic drinks were permitted. 1920s music was provided by The Fat Babies Jazz Band and Jane Driscoll, pianist.
It was a great gala and we are grateful to all of our guests, sponsors, and, of course, the wonderful entertainers!
