- $25 for one ticket to The Big Toast ($50 value)
On September 27th, from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., join the charitable organization Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Ocean State for an evening of 1920s-themed entertainment, loosely based on The Great Gatsby. Held at the historic Linden Place Museum, the event provides an opportunity to sample fine wines, beers, liquors, and gourmet cuisine while giving to a good cause.
The Big Toast
The Big Toast, a Great Gatsby-themed benefit for Big Brothers Big Sisters of The Ocean State, blends the decadence of the roaring 20s with the philanthropic spirit of the modern age. Partygoers are invited to dress in flapper dresses and fedoras (or business casual). They can also sample their fill of fine wines, craft beers, and quality liquors, celebrating just like the Prohibition-Era speakeasy dwellers did.
The evening's entertainment takes place at the Linden Place Museum. Throughout its storied history, the well-maintained mansion has entertained four presidents, generations of socialites, and famous performers such as Ethel Barrymore Colt. Appropriately enough, it even served as a set for the 1974 film adaptation of the The Great Gatsby.
