50,000 Daffodils Deck 'Gatsby'-Themed Fund-Raiser
At its 20th anniversary Daffodil Ball, the Canadian Cancer Society incorporated 50,000 daffodils into a 1920s-style setting.
Billed as the most successful cancer-related fund-raising gala in Canada, the Daffodil Ball raised around $1.9 million and drew a sold-out crowd of 700 this year; it had a waiting list since early March. The hundreds who scored tickets donned boas and long strands of pearls for the April 18 event, which had a Great Gatsby theme that brought the 1920s to life at Windsor Station in Montreal.
Here's a look at how the prestigious gala channeled F. Scott Fitzgerald's novel (and the new Baz Luhrmann film) while letting its signature flower shine. After all, the decor included some 50,000 daffodils.
