Little Black Dress Cocktail Party

Start Date: Saturday, October 25, 2014 - 3:00pm

End Date: Saturday, October 25, 2014 - 5:00pm

Location: Bay Wolf Resetaurant

Address: 21270 Rock Hall Ave Rock Hall, MD 21661

LBDA volunteer, Cora Dickson, is organizing a “Little Black Dress” cocktail party on October 25 at The Bay Wolf, from 3-5 pm. Donations will benefit the Lewy Body Dementia Association (www.lbda.org), which has designated October as LBD Awareness Month.

"Many women have a little black dress in their wardrobe because it’s so versatile, and we love finding excuses to wear it,” Dickson explained. “I want this to be a fun event but also educate people on a disease that is really not so rare.” Dickson’s father, who passed away in 2013 after living with her in Rock Hall for six months, had LBD symptoms but she didn’t recognize them for many years.

“If this Little Black Dress party can open some eyes and help others in my community, that’s the best way I can honor my father’s memory,” Dickson said.

Women wearing a black dress at the party will get a free drink and a purple corsage. Light hors d'oeuvres will be served. 

Suggested donation $20
