The parents and faculty of Geneva Academy invite you to put on your dancing shoes and 1920s best and join us for an evening with all the fun and flair of “The Great Gatsby” era. The 5th Annual Wig and Stache Bash will be hosted at Vantage Banquet Hall in historic downtown Monroe on Friday, February 17 at 6:30 pm. All proceeds benefit the students of Geneva Academy, a pre-K through 12th grade classical Christian school, located on Oliver Road in Monroe, Louisiana.
This year’s event includes a formal dinner catered by Waterfront Grill, beverages provided by Choice Brands, a live and silent auction, dance lessons and more. Those who make it to the party during the first hour are invited to try the signature drink of the evening, The Gryphon Gimlet. Tables will play to win their choice of dessert in our annual “Dessert Dash,” which is always a crowd favorite.
Guests are encouraged to dance the night away in costumes and period attire from the Roaring Twenties. Ladies, don your flapper dresses, wigs and headpieces. Gents, style those moustaches—real or costume—and come dressed in your favorite gangster getup. Formal dress attire is also welcome. We will have a photo booth on site to capture you and your party looking your finest.
Our live auction promises to be the highlight of the evening, offering bidders a chance to win prizes such as a one week stay in a nine bedroom beach house on Pensacola Beach, a handcrafted ten-foot farmhouse table featuring sunken heart pine from 1815 and a weekend for two at the Viking Cooking School and the Alluvian Hotel and Spa, plus many more amazing packages. Guests will have opportunities to win more prizes in our silent auction, pay-to-play games and our raffle, which features a Kelly Moore Bag, a beach getaway to Gulf Shores, Alabama and an LSU weekend for Fall 2017. Raffle tickets are available for $10 each at rafflepages.com. Search “Geneva Academy” to purchase as many tickets of your choice as you like.
Following the auction, guests may enjoy an after party featuring community vendors such as Governors Cigars and Pipes, Ouachita Brewing Co., Roela Roasters and Caster & Chicory.
“The Geneva family looks forward to this event every year,” says Director of Development, Aleta Eley. “Our event committee has been hard at work, putting together some amazing auction packages and planning all kinds of fun for community members to enjoy. We hope everyone will come out and enjoy this special evening.”
