Krewe of Gatsby Girls

History:

Krewe of Gatsby Girls was established in 2014 by Angela Crooke Stokes, Brannan Rogers Niell, and Holly Cummings.

The inaugural year of Gatsby Girls was comprised of 90 Founding Members. In our second year, our Krewe has grown to an astounding 116 Member Krewe.

About Krewe:

Our vision is uniting together strong, independent women who possess style and class, to give back to our community, while having a fabulous time doing so….Gatsby Style

Krewe of Gatsby Girls is active in the community through philanthropy with partnerships with various organizations. This year, Gatsby Girls, selected Ronald McDonald House Charities of Northwest Florida to receive a portion of proceeds from our Annual Speakeasy Ball and Charity Event that takes place each year on New Years Eve.

Our Krewe is comprised of over 100 women who share a common bond in philanthropy work, placing high value in community service, fundraising, and charity promotion.

Krewe of Gatsby Girls is a 1920’s-era themed krewe – a krewe easy to spot with women dressed in authentic 20’s Gatsby attire, adorned with gold and pearls, and a staple of the 20’s—the headpiece.
