Join ACBA for the Fifth Annual RED Party Fundraiser!

Drawing inspiration from the 1920s, the Old Charleston Jail will become the set of The Great Gatsby, transforming this historic landmark building into the Gatsby mansion with overflowing champagne, swinging jazz, revelers dressed in their best ‘20s outfits and more to set the stage for our annual celebration of traditional artisans.

EMBRACE THE EXTRAVAGENCE OF THE ROARING 1920’s and be a part of this worthwhile fundraiser. This is a costume party so, whether you wear your finest vintage cocktail attire, create the greatest fantastical get up seen in Charleston or sport the utmost dashing attire in red, dress to impress and be prepared for a red hot night not to be forgotten!

Get into the spirit of the Red Party. During the coming months leading up to the "Gatsby" Red Party, ACBA will be hosting pop-up events throughout Charleston and on Facebook.

Why is it The “RED” Party?
Red is the most emotionally powerful color and really catches people’s attention. It signifies intensity and energy that stimulates a faster heartbeat and breathing. Red adds sparkle to a party and perhaps even hints at a dash of danger.

Red encourages artistic skills and talents; hence, it is an inspiring color for creative individuals who represent the college’s students and all the people who attend the party.
