Save the Date & Call for Fanworks! Daintiest Charity Ball 2015


It’s that time again! BSI Weekend is approaching in January and this is a SAVE THE DATE and a CALL FOR FANWORKS of our charity ball!

This year it is a Sussex Retirement theme aka 1920s! We want BEEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSS!

The Daintiest (Bee) Under Your Bonnet Charity Ball
Sussex Flapper Party to benefit Wounded Warrior Project
At 8:00 pm January 8th Following the BSI Distinguished Speaker Lecture

The Players Club
16 Gramercy Park South
$45/ticket for Buffet, Goodie Bags, Live Piano, Quiz & Costume Competition with Prizes, Live Auction

Tickets will be released very soon, and we will update everyone when they finally go up on all our social media sites.

Now, as I’m sure you know by now, 100% of proceeds from the Ball go to benefit wounded veterans.

We are requesting if any of you fine citizens of the internet are inclined to clean out any Sherlockian-oriented closets or donate original pieces of art and crafts, we would be thrilled and honored to accept donations to our live and silent auctions.

The cause could not be more important, and we’ve been lucky enough to raise $8,000 in the past two years for our wounded war heroes through the amazing Wounded Warrior Project, and that effort depends on your generosity and the generosity of folk who might hear about this drive from you!

Shipping becomes very difficult during the holiday season.  So if anyone has an item to contribute or a suggestion to make, we’re all ears, and will promptly give you our mailing address or collect the object at a Sherlockian event in the NYC area.

Please email Lyndsay at with any offers of items, art, or crafts with a Sherlockian theme.

Super thanks to mdsora for the gorgeous graphic!

    Looking forward to signing up for the Ball- a highlight of the Birthday season.
    Sussex Retirement/1920’s theme? What does Sussex have that the charming climate of Florida doesn’t?

    Looking forward to the ball – I went last year and had a lovely time chatting with people, admiring costumes, and bidding on wonderful Sherlockian items. I’m hoping you guys do something about the food, though – there really was not a lot of it for the price you charged and it’s quite difficult to eat while standing with nowhere to set your plate down. I realize the money goes to charity, so the price I won’t bicker with – but more food and more convenience in it would make the ball perfect this time around. Otherwise, I look forward to a second lovely evening!
