With Fox 45 Chief Meteorologist Vytas Reid as emcee, the black-tie optional celebration will feature flavorful dishes, wine, beer and cocktails provided by Baltimore’s best restaurants and caterers.
Adding to the fun, guests can enjoy Cirque-style entertainment, as well as dancing to the jazz, rock, R&B, funk, reggae, Top 40, swing, soul and pop sounds of Fifth Avenue.
Silent and live auctions will have a variety of items up for bid, including: a week’s stay in a Paris apartment, a long weekend’s cabin stay in the West Virginia forest, Camden Yards skybox parties, premium Ravens and Orioles tickets, and signed Ravens’ memorabilia.
Co-chaired by SBLC Board Vice President Ian H. Neuman (principal, Abbey Drum Co.) and SBLC Board Secretary Darlene Davis (an attorney with Ober, Kaler Grimes & Shriver), the gala will honor Barry Blumberg, longtime board member and donor, and Bank of America for their longtime commitment and support of SBLC.
Proceeds will benefit the South Baltimore Learning Center, a community-based nonprofit organization providing functional literacy and life skills training in addition to career preparation services to educationally disadvantaged adults in the Baltimore area.
