Gatsby themed evening draws hundreds of supporters
Over 200 Ridgefield Academy parents, faculty and staff decked out in suits and flapper dresses accented with feathers and pearls joined together at the Lounsbury House in Ridgefield last Friday evening for a roaring good time at the Academy's 1920's Gatsby themed Gala. Guests enjoyed glasses of champagne and delicious hors d'oeuvres, and were treated to live dance performances throughout the night – all for a wonderful cause. The evening surpassed all expectations raising over $150,000 which immediately goes toward students and program enhancing the overall experience for each child. Gala Chair Kelly York and the committee worked tirelessly for months to ensure the success of the event.
