So what's on the menu??? (Scotty Fitzgerald would be jealous!)

Many of you have asked 'What is The Sea Turtle Soirée' on April 7th. It is a celebration that will kick off the Vilano Beach Festival in style. Nearly 100 feet of the Vilano Pier will be tented for this private community event with
amazing food and great live music.

Food:
We searched for a restaurant / caterer who could deliver Art Deco inspired gourmet dishes - so we are pleased that Culinary Outfitters will bring this evening to life with a menu including passed hors d'oeuvres and buffet with many select items. Here are just a few to wet your appetite:
- Caprese skewers
- Sausages in filo
- Salmon mouse
- Crudite platter
- Tomato Basil Pie
- Mix of beef, chicken, and veggie kebabs
- Mix of beer, wine, champagne, and French inspired cocktails cocktails!

Music.
We've hired the Bay Kings. These classically trained artists will provide a blend of 20's jazz and Motown greats. You might have seen them light up the night at the Flagler College New Years Eve Gala.

Setting:
We've reserved the west end of the pier for this private event. Both tented and open air with soft bistro lighting and amazing views. Our aim is to provide a wonderful setting for a very special night.

Why are we doing this?
We love this community and want to celebrate its heritage and bring friends, neighbors and colleagues together for a great cause. A percentage of the profits help improve lighting and walkability in the greater Vilano community.

Why is it called the Sea Turtle Soirée?
Because it was the perfect name that brings together the essence of the community coupled with a fun event.

Other info:
- Facilities: We will have toilet facilities out on the pier - no need to have to walk too far!
- Security: We have hired security to ensure a safe and fun environment for all.
- Parking: We will use the public Vilano street parking as well as a lot which we will convert into parking for the night.
- Attire: Roaring 20's attire if you like - or just come looking sharp and fun to celebrate the night.
