Family, Children's Services


May 06, 2001|By Sloane Brown

Where better than a museum to have a party with a theme about a previous era? The Baltimore Museum of Industry was turned into a 1920's speakeasy for Family and Children's Services of Central Maryland's "Spring Thaw 2001." A few fedoras were spotted bobbing above the crowd of 300, and occasionally one could catch a glimpse of a feather boa or flapper dress here and there. In costume or not, partygoers definitely caught the free-flowing spirit of the Roaring 20s.

The bash raised about $47,000 for Family and Children's Services.
