“The Great Gatsby” Wisteria Regale

On Saturday, March 24, the historic Banning Museum barn was filled with laughter and jazz as supporters and friends celebrated Wisteria Regale in “The Great Gatsby” style. Dressed to the nines in Roaring 20’s attire, folks enjoyed an evening of great deals at the silent auction, hosted cocktails and delicious tri-tip for dinner. Guests were also treated to the sweet sounds of 5-piece jazz ensemble, Big Lucky Band as The Atomic Cherry Bombs dance troupe wowed the crowd with lively dance numbers reminiscent of the twenties. The highlight of the evening was the presentation of the $4,000 Wisteria Scholarship awards to Damian Sanchez and Julie Melgarejo from Banning High School. Congratulations to these outstanding students.

Thank you to all the sponsors and guests who helped make the evening such a fantastic success! See you next year!
