Jazz on the Green a Roaring Good Time

Last night, the flapper ladies and dapper gents of St Patrick’s Green, Kogarah came dressed in the spirit of the roaring 1920’s for Jazz on the Green. Our retirement and aged care residents were joined by guests from the local St George community and St Brigid’s Green for a fantastic evening of live jazz, great food, and brilliant company. 

The weather held out and the sun shone down on our Village Green, as the popular jazz band, Sydney Jazz Collective put on a brilliant show for our residents. Chris Minns MP and local Councillor, Nick Katris were amongst the crowd, and enjoyed getting to know the people who call St Patrick’s Green, home. The jazz music brought back some beautiful memories for a lot of residents, many of whom got up to enjoy a dance throughout the show. 
 
Greengate’s CEO, Ralph Warburton, said ‘What a great energy there was here tonight! Our residents were thrilled with the music, and the food, especially the lamb, has been a massive hit. I hope this is the first of many Jazz on the Green events to come in our beautiful Kogarah village.’ 
 
Head Chef at St Patrick’s Green, Nelson put on a glamourous spread for the evening, complete with stracciatella, cucumber cups, prawns and stuffed mushrooms. Everyone delighted in the food, which went down great with our house-made Pimm’s cocktail.
 
Residents, guests and the village team thoroughly enjoyed Jazz on the Green, with many making the most of the fun opportunity to partake in the Gatsby-style social event from the comfort of home.
 
St Patrick’s Green has an Open House every Monday from 10am-12pm; visitors are welcome to stop by and take a look at the available retirement apartments and surrounding community areas.
