WHAT IS IT?
The Great Gatsby was written almost one hundred years ago, but one message behind the story lives on. Just as the Green Light situated at the end of Daisy's dock in F. Scott Fitzgerald's novel represents the hopes and dreams for the future, our Gatsby Gala which is set during the Jazz Age, is also meant to be serve as our premier fundraiser because your donations help fund a large part of our summer program. Whether you attend as a guest, or volunteer as a helper, we welcome you to be a part of our extravaganza as we try to fulfill the hopes, dreams and desires of our sailing school. Ladies and Gentlemen, it won't be much longer before it's time to get out the feather boa and bow tie!

HOW CAN I HELP?
As you might imagine planning and preparing for the Gatsby Gala is a huge undertaking. The more hands we have on deck, the less we each have to do. We already have the ball rolling for our August 5th event. There is a long list of tasks, including such things as gathering gift certificates from local businesses, preparing auction baskets, writing item descriptions, preparing invitations, marketing and publicity, cleaning and setting up the venue, and on and on. We ask that you please contact us should helping out be your cup of tea. We truly appreciate any and all assistance that you can muster. Thank you!
As you can see, our archive has plenty of room for more pictures and videos. We invite you to submit any media that you would like to share. We ask that you please include a description of what each item is. We recommend that you email us your submissions. Thank you!
