A Night In Paris

Wellington, Florida

January 21, 2011

 

It was three cheers for the “bleu blanc et rouge” as JustWorld International celebrated the most romantic city in the world during their eighth annual fundraising gala in Wellington, Florida. 

Once again, Dazzle Creative Events was there to see that it would be a night to remember.

The party was once again held at Maria Newman’s Belle Herbe Farm and was aptly named “A Night In Paris.”  From the patriotic colors of the French flag to the ever so famous Eiffel Tower, Wellington was treated to a taste of Paris.   

As guest arrived to register, they were greeted by a strolling accordion player who filled the night air with romantic French standards.  Other entertainment included a dance troop that performed routines from the hit film Moulin Rouge… and of course what night in Paris would be complete without a bevy of beauties kicking up their heels to a lively rendition of the Can-Can? 

Silent auction items lined the length of the huge tent and were the evening’s tribute to the Champs Elysées as guests bid on specialty and designer items all to benefit the cause.   

True to any Parisian celebration, Champagne and fine food was the call of the evening.  Guests were treated to a varitety of French delicacies that would have made Julia Child proud!  Thanks to a generious donation by Whole Foods of Wellington who graciouly donated all of the food used for the evening’s gala, caterers extriodinaire, Chez Gourmet prepared everything from coq au vin to melt-in-your-mouth filet de boeuf with gratin dauphinios to an ever so light and buttery assortment of freshly baked quiches! 

The evening was a smashing success for JustWorld, pulling in a record number of supporters who turned out for the evening (over 650!) as well as for the delighted guests who danced the night away.  As the French say, “C’est Si Bon”… and it sure was!
