The Daintiest Thing Under a Palm Tree Beach Party – Save the Date & Call for Donations!

The Daintiest Thing Under A Palm Tree Beach Party - Save the date - The Baker Street Babes -

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!

Completely ignoring the fact that BSI Weekend is held in January, we are throwing a beach party! Come to us with your best coconut bras, banana hammocks, and completely nonsensical sunglasses for a night of wonder and raising money for a wonderful charity: the Disabled American Veterans Trust .

The Baker Street Babes Present

The Daintiest Thing Under a Palm Tree Beach Party

At 8:00 pm January 5th, following the BSI Distinguished Speaker Lecture

Tickets will be released very soon, as well as our location in Manhattan (sadly The Player’s is no longer available), 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 (and you can check out our previous balls HERE).

Call for donations - Baker STreet Babes -

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 $26,000 in the past four years for our wounded war heroes through the amazing Disabled American Veterans Trust , 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. We need all items no later than January 1, 2017.

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

You can revisit our past charity events here.

Super thanks to Sora for the delightful graphic!
