The Friends of OHEKA held their annual garden party on Wednesday evening, celebrating 30 years of growth since owner Gary Melius purchased the dilapidated castle and began restoring it to the splendor of the Great Gatsby era. 

As hundreds of guests, many in Gatsby era attire strolled the grounds, they were greeted by the sounds of classical music and cool jazz. Congratulations to Allan Deitz and his incredibly talented Jazz musicians and to Frank Yolango and his equally talented Walt Whitman Chamber Orchestra for providing the perfect musical backdrop to an always beautiful evening on the grounds of this magnificent castle.
