This year, we threw it back to the 1920's to pay it forward for Habitat homeowners in 2020!  


The Jasmine Room at the Historic Grand Manse
129 North 10th Street, Lincoln

You're invited to step back to the Roaring 20's with Habitat Lincoln as we celebrate the biggest bash of the year, New Year's Eve!

Surrounded by the sights and sounds of the Great Gatsby era, guests will enjoy an evening of glitz-glam, dine on fabulous cuisine, swing the Charleston, sip on Speakeasy-approved libations, bid on unique silent auction and premiere raffle items, capture their era-inspired fashion in the photo booth, and more. You're guaranteed to have a roaring good time! 

Must be 21+ to attend.

Where is the Jasmine Room? 
The Jasmine Room is located in the historic Grand Manse at 129 N. 10th Street. 

Where do I park? 
There is street parking or parking garages nearby. 

What time should I arrive? 
The party starts at 8:00 pm. You must be 21+ to attend. You do not need a physical ticket, we will check you in by name. 

How do you dress "Gatsby?"
Dressing for the era is optional but is encouraged. Black and white should be your main colors-unless you want to shimmer and shine in something sparkly! Hats are an easy way to take a guy's suit and make it retro. Already own a cocktail dress? Simply add gloves, feathers and pearls for something glitzy. Visit Nobbies (120 & Center, Omaha), mention Habitat for Humanity of Lincoln to get 10% off any Gatsby fashion accessory! 

I can't attend but can I make a donation?
