When people hear “old Hollywood,” Frank Sinatra, Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn and James Dean usually come to mind.
Last Friday in Richmond Hill, those Hollywood stars came to life when Magnolia Manor on the Coast transformed into a glamorous Hollywood Night Club, where characters like Scarlett O’Hara and Lucy Ricardo appeared vividly for patrons to see.
Fresh-cut roses, alluring décor glistened by candlelight and fascinating costumes were a sight to see for 75 senior adults from the coastal area.
“The ambience was breathtaking, and it was obvious each of our residents and guests had a magnificent time,” Magnolia Manor admissions director Julie Licavoli said.
Costumes and outfits worn by guests and staff added to the atmosphere. People dressed up like flappers, Hollywood stars and even Capone-like gangsters attended the event.
Magnolia Manor on the Coast hosted the Old Hollywood Party as a way to bring awareness to the Greater Savannah Coalition on Aging, an organization whose sole purpose is to bring education and advocacy for senior adults within the community.
The party was held as a part of the coalition’s Senior Safari, which is a weeklong event in which retirement communities in the coastal area host events for seniors.
