Lakewood Ranch's Christy Carey went all out for her Gatsby-themed outfit.
She had on a red flapper dress, patterned tights and a feather headband.
"You have to do the fringe," Carey said with a laugh.
She wasn't alone.
Almost every one of the more than 300 guests dressed in 1920s fashion for Sisterhood for Good's Gatsby Speakeasy Soirée on Feb. 17 at the Hyatt Regency in Sarasota.
"It's great to see everybody looking all fun and glittery," said Lakewood Ranch's Maria MacDonald. "Everybody is dressed for the occasion."
The Gatsby Speakeasy Soirée benefited Sisterhood for Good's grants program, which provides money to nonprofits throughout Sarasota and Manatee counties. Early estimates were the special event raised more than $70,000.
Lakewood Ranch's Rosemary and John Gurski were thrilled to attend the sold-out soirée. Rosemary Gurski said she was impressed by the event and wanted to learn more about the nonprofit.
