UCP - THE GREAT GATSBY GALA
The Great Gatsby Gala, in aid of United Cerebral Palsy (UCP) of New York, was an event that consisted of a group of generous people including a list of celebrities getting together to support a worthy cause through fun, fine food and gambling. The Dreamland Orchestra contributed to the evening’s 1920’s inspired theme with a repertoire of songs that had your toes tapping and shoulders moving. Guests had access to gaming tables and an exquisite buffet dinner provided on location by Fino Ristorante Italiano.
Celebrity host for the evening Jill Flint, from the hit television show, “Royal Pains” shared a very personal story as to why she has recently come on board to support such a worthy cause. “I grew up with someone who was affected by cerebral Palsy: my baby sitters son. She was not only taking care of my brother and me but she was also taking care of her son as well”
