2nd Annual Oscar Night “Great Gatsby Gala”

“Can’t repeat the past?… Why of course you can!”
− F. Scott Fitzgerald

The Academy is announcing their nominations for this year’s Oscars and we are getting ready!

This year’s theme is Great Gatsby Gala, and it will be remembered as the GREATEST Gatsby Gala!

The event is at 5:00 pm Sunday, March 2nd, 2014 at Zapata 32 on the Avenida in La Peñita de Jaltemba.

For each donation made you will receive a ballot packet to fill out before the gala. Bring your ballots to the event and drop them into the appropriate ballot boxes. If you select the correct winner as announced live in each category, and if your name is drawn from that particular ballot box, you will receive an Oscar of your own to take home. Lucy Foster has generously agreed to be our fabulous host and will award the Oscars. There also will be chances throughout the evening to win raffle prizes if you haven’t had a chance to catch up with this year’s nominations.

You will make a grand Gatsby entrance by walking the red carpet and receive a complimentary glass of champagne to toast the gala. Also in your donation packet you will receive one beer/wine ticket to kick off your evening, and five food tickets to sample local culinary delights from several participating restaurants. Additional food tickets will be available throughout the televised show and a cash bar will be open throughout the night until the wee hours of dancing. You still have time to see if you know your ‘Black Bottom’ from your ‘Charleston’. Be sure to bring a camera for candid moments in our photo booth!

Donations are $300 pesos and ballot packets can be picked up at Hamaca Maya, Los Amigos at Tianguis, Hidden Paradise at Tianguis, Xaltemba Restaurant and El Rodeo Restaurant. This year’s proceeds will benefit the Jaltemba Bay Animal Rescue (JBAR) and the Community Center of La Peñita de Jaltemba.

“And I like large parties. They’re so intimate.
At small parties there isn’t any privacy.”

− F. Scott Fitzgerald
