A ’70s themed event demands a certain decor and attire, and for that the 2017 Jesuit High School’s annual benefit, themed as Celebration at the Disco Ball Gala Auction, created just the right mood on Oct. 28.
A large disco ball loomed at The Cannery, the party site, which was also adorned with colored lights highlighting the walls and most guests donned bell bottoms, platform shoes, wigs, T dye, and sequins. The mood music started with The Blue Jay Jazz Band at the entrance, followed by DJ Pat Barbaro who spun disco from the ’70s. The evening also featured food from area restaurants, a specialty drink called “The Travolta,” and silent and live auctions. The silent auction offered 250 plus items, including a David Yurman cable wrap ring, donated by Aucoin Hart Jewelers; five course food and beer dinner for 20 people at Ale NOLA; Nashville Get Away to the Holston House Hotel, donated by HRI Properties; and Cakebread Benchland Select Cabernet Sauvignon Vertical 2006 2011, donated by Alicia and Michael Johnson. John Brown, with a guest appearance from Fr. Christopher Fronk, Jesuit’s new President, who jumped into the mix sporting a 70’s wig,
which thrilled the audience. Among those lots were a seven to 10 day stay in a home in Camden, Maine, donated by Mr. and Mrs. Elliott Carpenter; Napa Valley getaway, donated by Meadowood Napa Valley, Darioush Winery and Fontanella Family Winery (both of which almost burned in the Napa Valley fires earlier in October); dinner for six with Fr. Fronk at Ralph’s on the Park; and a highly coveted parking spot on campus, which saw the most bidding.
