The Symphony Orchestra League of Alexandria transformed The Atrium in Old Town into a speakeasy reminiscent of the Great Gatsby and the Roaring Twenties for its 32nd annual fundraiser and gala April 13 benefitting the Alexandria Symphony Orchestra.
More than 130 attendees turned out for Gatsby’s Speakeasy II, an Evening of Drinks, Dice and Dance that included a cocktail hour, silent auction and dinner by Society Fair. SOLA member Gant Redmon conducted the live auction, donning a different 1920s style hat for each item offered.
David Magsumbol and Genevieve Moorhouse co-chaired the event and Claire Schwab assisted Magsumbol with the table theme and room decor.
SOLA has been a major financial supporter of the ASO since 1981. Donations to the symphony can be made at sola.givesmart.com.
