The Deerfield Chamber of Commerce transformed the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel for their Gatsby-themed gala March 21 — the biggest fundraiser of the year.

 Guests dressed to the nines. La Mystique dancers shimmied and shook on the dance floor, posing for pics. A cigarette girl strolled with candy. A long line of auction items were up for silent bid and a live auction was commandeered by Pompano Mayor Lamar Fisher ($25,000 worth of auction items in all).

Honey Bunch Florist, which created the feathered centerpieces, was one of the Big Shots honored, along with Seawood Builders, Bartell Chiropractic, Broward Health, Oceans 234, Bicycle Generation, Awards by Academy and JP Miller & Sons. Key Club students assisted.                  

Guests dined on three-course meal and danced the night away.
