Speakeasy Fundraising Dinner

Orchard School, in Aptos CA enjoyed A Night at the Speakeasy for their annual fundraising auction dinner. Parents, teachers and friends all dressed the part of flappers, gangsters, guys and dolls. An authentic speakeasy feel was created with a fake brick wall, wine barrels and crates holding moonshine, rented street lamps, wanted posters featuring teachers, and red and gold up-lighting. A cigarette girl sold raffle tickets and handed out gold cigars. Guests sipped Bees Knees and Side Car cocktails while listening to the Sparkler Speakeasy Playlists. A roaring good time was had by all!
