The Great Gatsby Inspired Bat Mitzvah Celebration

The Perchekly family of Plainview, New York, celebrated their daughter Gabriella’s (Gabby) Bat Mitzvah service at Temple Chaverim in Plainview, New York.  Later that evening there was a celebration at Temple Or Elohim in Jericho, New York.

Since Gabby loves to dance and the family loves a good party, combining the two was a great way to celebrate.

Using the “The Great Gabby” as her logo, this party had lots of glitz and glamour!

Pictured L-R: Mom Sabina, Brother Aaron, Bat Mitzvah girl Gabby and Dad Alexander.

The photographer was Simon Elliot Events and the rest of the vendor information is listed at the end of the spotlight.

Once inside, guests knew they were in for something unique and special. The dramatic hot pink, over-sized boa feathers with some bling, from Feather Centerpieces, made quite a statement. Hasson Caterers did all the draping.

  PKU Alliance logo

Gabby raised money for the PKU Alliance. Phenylketonuria (PKU) is a rare, inherited metabolic disorder that is characterized by the inability of the body to utilize the essential amino acid, phenylalanine.  This is very dear to Gabby’s heart as one of her close friends has the disorder. It affects the way the body breaks down protein. Gabby had a Shop for a Cause at Carrie’s Closet in Plainview, New York and donated the profits to The National PKU Alliance. This organization works to improve the lives of families and individuals associated with PKU through research, support, and education, while ultimately seeking a cure. The National PKU Alliance not only supports the families and individuals but they are also a leading force in fighting insurance companies to give families the right amount of money to get the proper foods and medicine that individuals with PKU need.

Advice from Mom Sabina:
“Use people you trust and that work with Bat/Bar Mitzvah families on a weekly basis.”
