Daintiest Thing Ball 2015
On January 8, 2015, during the official Baker Street Irregulars Weekend in NYC, we presented the third annual Daintiest Thing Under a Bonnet Charity Ball, a banquet benefiting Wounded Warrior Project in honor of all our courageous men and women in uniform. We owe inspiration for this event to those who tirelessly serve our country, and to Dr. John Watson, army doctor, whose recovery from the ravages of the Second Afghan War once required the help of an extraordinary friend.
It was hosted at the historic Player’s Club in New York City with a bustling 1920s theme in relation to Sherlock Holmes’ later years as a beekeeper. It featured an auction of Sherlockian swag (artwork, rare books, crafts), a quiz, a raffle, a costume competition, and live music
Together we raised $8,000 and 100% of proceeds from the ball benefited the Wounded Warrior Project, www.woundedwarriorproject.org; 1-877-TEAM-WWP.
As of January 13, 2015 that brought our three year total to an amazing $16,000 raised for The Wounded Warrior Project. We cannot thank all of you who have contributed towards our charity balls these past three years enough. Whether you bought tickets, bid on items, donated items, or entered into a multi-thousand dollar bid war, you have helped us do this and you should be very proud.
