Great Gatsby Bash

May 23, 2013, BBALP started off the summer by going back in time to the Roaring Twenties with a grand party full of dapper gents and flapper darlings. This exclusive fundraiser at the elegant Griffin, benefited the Bisila Bokoko African Literacy Project. The event included an hour-long open bar to kick things off! By helping us sell out the event, attendees helped to build a beautiful library in Africa during the summer. Guests dressed the part for the Great Gatsby party, and were swept away into another era.
