Under the light of the full Florida moon, surrounded by the fall-fresh aroma of gardenia, magnolia, and tuberose, the Junior Service League of St. Augustine will gather for its 35th Annual Fall Gala. The historical and charming waterfront expanse of the Fountain of Youth will be all aglow with sparkling candles and twinkling lights, transformed into an enchanting and glamorous fairy tale.
And naturally, an array of traditional Southern fare from Black Molly is on the menu along with fusions certain to create a nirvana of the palate (and the annual signature cocktail will be announced soon!). As the night progresses, a silent auction will be held showcasing special items and experiences from local artisans and business owners, and dinner and dancing including full open bar and DJ as well as charitable gambling will continue through the night. A string quartet will offer entertainment during the cocktail hour and Sweet City Cupcakes will create sugary confectionary for all to enjoy.
This exquisite black-tie gala is one of St. Augustine’s must-attend events, but it’s not only for the glitz, glamour, and mingling! The Moonlight & Magnolias Gala benefits more than ten local and national charities, including tag! Children’s Museum, Kids Bridge Supervised Visitation Center, Boys and Girls Club of America, and the landmark St. Augustine Lighthouse. The event will begin at 5:30pm on November 4.
Tickets to the event are $150 and can be purchased online. For more information, visit www.jslgala.com.
