Who knew that craft cocktails, delicious hors d’oeuvres, and the Charleston could be so philanthropic? Well Volkswagen of St. Augustine does, for one. Through their annual event “A Gatsby Affair,” the dealership raised over $7500 for the St. Johns County Cultural Council, a non-profit dedicated to furthering the arts in our community.
The event attracted nearly 200 costumed guests for a night of live jazz, classic 1920s vehicles, specialty cocktails, craft beer, and palatable fare. The night boasted a silent auction featuring donations from businesses all over the city and a grand prize of a 7-night stay Bachelors Gulch, Colorado.
