Celebrate Atlanta invites all members to a night of Broadway at the Georgia Ensemble Theatre. Tickets while normally $25 to $40 will be $10 for Celebrate Atlanta members with 90% of the proceeds going to Relay for Life of Ruach Atlanta. Relay for Life benefits cancer research, provides support for those that have cancer and support for those of us that have lost a loved one to cancer. In honor of the survivors, while optional, I hope you will wear purple or pink and if you have a cancer ribbon, proudly wear it on your lapel.

I do not need to explain the impact cancer has on people's lives, not only the person with cancer but those that are part of their life, especially family. I myself lost my mother to cancer as a child (I alway wear a pink ribbon on my jacket lapel in support of ending cancer.

Therefore join us on February 26, 2013 for The Great Gatsby at Georgia Ensemble Theatre in Roswell. As I said, your $10 admission with 90% going to Relay for Life of Ruach Atlanta and with your help, maybe the letters of children about their parents, grandparents, brothers, sisters, cousins, aunts, uncles and friends will be a thing of the past.

So come out and show your support for all cancer victims and lets stamp out this nemesis once and for all.

Celebrate members will enjoy discounted food and drinks and great conversation before the show at Diesel. Come to Diesel between 5:30 and 6 and then it is about 3 minutes to the Georgia Ensemble Theatre.

As to the play:

We are so excited to bring this thrilling literary classic to our stage. Jay Gatsby, a self-made millionaire, passionately pursues the elusive Daisy Buchanan. Nick Carraway, a young newcomer to Long Island, is drawn into their world of obsession, greed and danger. The breathtaking glamour and decadent excess of the Jazz Age come to the stage in F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic novel, and in Simon Levy's adaptation, approved by the Fitzgerald Estate.
