The Virginia Country Club home of Dr. Marlene Farooq and Craig Carter was transformed into a 1920s speakeasy for Steel Magnolias’ annual Signature Event featuring a 1920’s twist, which took place on Sunday, September 15.

It was drop-waist dresses, stylish cloches, plenty of argyle coupled with newsboy hats as guests mixed and mingled to help raise money for the Stramski Children’s Developmental Center at Millers Children’s and Women’s Hospital.  Guests enjoyed Boardwalk Empire-style entertainment with the delightful Satin Dollz and a wisecracking ventriloquist along the music from the era.

The Roaring Twenties was a fitting theme for this year’s event as Steel Magnolias marks its 20th anniversary.  To sum it up, Gatsby on the Green truly was the bee’s knees – and how.
