Put on your flapper dress or tuxedo and time-travel back to the Jazz Age for the 23rd annual Party in Fort Worth, benefiting the Fort Worth Promotion and Development Fund.

“The Great Gatsby” is the theme for this year’s party planned for Feb. 13 at the Fort Worth Convention Center. Sundance Square is the presenting sponsor, and Ed Bass and Johnny Campbell are event chairs. Professor D will provide entertainment.

Deadline for ticket orders is Feb. 3.

Dress for the event is swanky fabulous. Think men in black tie or a black suit, and women in flappers and fringe.

The Party in Fort Worth is an annual event benefiting the Fort Worth Promotion and Development Fund. The fund, which is governed by a 13-member board, invests funds to promote Fort Worth before regional, national and international cultural, business, sports and governmental organizations. The Promotion Fund also provides resources for the development of local events, attractions and exhibits that enhance Fort Worth’s ability to recruit business and leisure visitors.
