The BREEF ‘Bootleggers’ Ball’ has attracted over 60 Silent Auction treasures, not least, a one of a kind, ocean inspired Astengo & de Lama Necklace, as part of their glamourous fund raising evening at Albany this Friday.
BREEF executive director Casuarina McKinney-Lambert, said she is thrilled with the response and the programme of events organized by the Ball committee.
“We will recreate the 1920s, and the grand traditions of that era with a mock casino where any winnings are cashed in for prizes, a chance to bid on an array of rich bounty in the silent auction, a bootleggers treasure-trove of raffle and door prizes, engaging Charlston dancers, live music for dancing under the stars with the Dion Turnquest band: ‘Tingum ‘dem’ and Bahamian jazz singer Stazzy, cocktail party, full open bar and gourmet dinner prepared by noted Chef Leudders.”
Co-chair Etoile Pinder explained that the Bootleggers’ Ball will celebrate a time in The Bahamas when our oceans were filled not only with ships laden with barrels of forbidden liquor, but also an abundance of groupers, lobsters and other marine-life. Astengo & de Lama is available at Seacret designs, Elizabeth on Bay.
Ball Tickets are still available from the BREEF office in Caves Village, call 327 9000. 1920’s dress for men and women is encouraged but not obligatory. The Bootleggers’ Ball is this Friday March 30th at Albany.
