The Black and White Ball 2016

August 6, 2016
The Speakeasy

Located in the Lexington Distillery District on Manchester Street, the Speakeasy is the most recent addition to the Barrel House Events facility. The Black and White Ball will bring the 1920’s alive, with a Ragtime band and swing dancing. Music will be provided by the Walnut Street Ramblers, accompanied by a dance lesson from LexSwing Dance. Guests will be encouraged to dress in era-appropriate attire to contribute to the atmosphere.

The Goal

The Black and White Ball is the annual fundraiser for the BRCC.  All funds raised from this event are used to directly support victim services and community prevention and awareness programs.
