Lay

Missy Lay, owner of Wild Goose Chase Events, is the new organizer of the annual Gatsby Party fundraiser.

The eighth annual event will be held Saturday, March 21, 2020, at the Stones River Country Club. Early bird tickets are $100 and go on sale Dec. 15 at borogatsby.com. The price goes up to $125 on Feb. 1. 

Tickets include heavy hors d'oeuvres, wine, custom cocktails, a silent auction, charity black jack, selfie booths and dancing. Attendees dress in their best Prohibition attire.

The Gatsby started as a fundraiser for the Alzheimer’s Association, but with the change in leadership, there will also be a change in beneficiaries, Lay said.

Lay said she plans to rotate the nonprofit beneficiary, starting this year with Amelia’s Closet. Amelia’s Closet is a faith-based nonprofit that helps reduce poverty by preparing women for sustainable employment.
