Old Hollywood at Cocoanut Grove was hosted March 3 at the Art Ovation Hotel.
Guests partied Old Hollywood style at the Asolo Repertory Theatre’s annual gala March 3 at Art Ovation Hotel.
After walking the red carpet, attendees enjoyed cocktail hour in the lobby, along with a photo booth, silent auction, raffle, laser-guided painting and jewelry on display and for purchase from 503 Burns Gallery.
To help the Old Hollywood theme come to life, Marilyn Monroe, Lucille Ball and Craig Gentry were invited, along with life-sized Oscar trophies who surprised guests by tapping them on the shoulder when they walked by.
After cocktail hour, guests gathered in the ballroom for dinner and a show. The first performance was from Puerto Rican singer Ana Isabelle. Then headliner Warren Priske took the stage with his six-piece orchestra, The Old Hollywood Jazz Band.
The evening ended with jazz music and dancing before guests moved over to Louies Modern for the after party.
