Sway DiFeo, Artist and Charity Event Coordinator

About 6 years ago a fiery soul swept onto our shores. Hailing from Asheville, North Carolina Sway DiFeo found a community in St. Augustine that was ready to put her talents to use. Through her sincere charm and tireless work ethic she has helped diverse groups of artists, businesspeople, and community service professionals come together in raising funds through memorable events and helping all walks of life find meaning and thrive through exposure to the arts.

She hosted her first signature event, "A Gatsby Affair", in 2014 at Volkswagen of St. Augustine – a family business operated by her husband Joe. By just it's fourth incarnation the event had grown so fast that it was hosted at the Lightner Museum and sold out with a crowd of 400 attending a grand 20's circus inspired party with a surprise appearance by Henry Flagler himself.

The past three Gatsby events were held to benefit St. Johns Cultural Council, raising over $30,000 for their arts outreach programs. Sway is currently working on Lightner Museum's New Year's Eve benefit event.

Sway is an artist herself, and in between raising and chasing down her six-year-old twins Charlie and Sophia and working on community events she finds time to slip away to her studio – The Art of Sway – to paint abstracts and empowering female silhouettes.

Sway and her family love St. Augustine and look forward to growing with this wonderful community!
