The Daintiest Thing Under a Bonnet Charity Ball Information

The Daintiest Thing Under a Bonnet Charity Ball

The Baker Street Babes are the web’s only all-female Sherlock Holmes podcast. This January, during the official Baker Street Irregulars Weekend in NYC, we present the Daintiest Thing Under a Bonnet 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.

We are in hopes the ball will prove an opportunity for traditional and fledgling Sherlockians to mingle and revel and palaver and enjoy each other’s company!

Thursday the 10th of January
8:00 pm, following the Distinguished Speaker’s Lecture
Salmagundi Club, 47 Fifth Avenue
New York, NY 10032
$45 Buffet Dinner

Featuring an auction of Sherlockian swag, a quiz, a raffle, a costume competition, and many more activities to be announced!

100% of proceeds from the ball benefit the Wounded Warrior Project, http://www.woundedwarriorproject.org; 1-877-TEAM-WWP.

Tickets are available at http://bakerstreetbabes.brownpapertickets.com
