It’s time once again for the Chase Brexton’s annual Charm Ball! On September 22nd from 6 pm to midnight, Chase Brexton Health Care will host their annual Charm Ball at the Renaissance Baltimore Harborplace Hotel (202 East Pratt Street, Baltimore). The main ball with cocktails, dinner, dancing, and awards ceremony will take place between 6 and 9 pm, followed by the Charm Ball After Party from 9 pm to midnight.
The disco themed flashback 40th party will recall Chase Brexton’s beloved “Retro Dance Night” fundraisers of years past, connecting supporters of yesterday and today with funky music, dancing, and fun. Chase Brexton invites you to join them as they journey back through the decades and celebrate 40 years of caring for our communities, and honoring those who have made a lasting impact on the wellness of our communities.
The event’s honorees will be the Baltimore City Health Department, receiving a Community Partner Award; former board members Joanne Kraus, receiving a Lifetime Volunteer Award, and Franklin N. McNeil Jr., receiving a Legacy Award; and former CEO David H. Shippee receiving a Leadership Award. In addition, a Chase Brexton staff member will receive the Dr. Ronald Taylor Award, given each year to a staff member who best exemplifies the mission of Chase Brexton Health Care.
The after party will feature dancing, a live band, an open bar, and fabulous desserts. Dress is cocktail, or if you dare, your most dynamite duds / totes rad threads / freshest gear from your favorite decade.
“Founded by and for the LGBT community in 1978, Chase Brexton has sustained a critical mission caring for all who enter our doors,” said Patrick Mutch, Chase Brexton CEO. “Today our mission is to honor diversity, inspire wellness and improve our community. With your help, I know we can continue our mission for decades to come.”
