  • Black Tie Baltimore to benefit Midtown Academy

    On Saturday, January 24, 2015, many pulled out their tuxes and dresses to support a great cause.  Black Tie Baltimore, was held at the Baltimore Museum of Industry to support three educational nonprofits:  Midtown Academy, Carson Scholar Fund, and Teach for America.

    There were hors d’oeuvres and food from Sascha’s, a DJ playing music, and a photo booth from Pixilated.  Later in the evening the Blue Label band took stage and the dancing didn’t stop.  Members of Blue Label have played over 10,000 live shows and performed at half-time shows for Philadelphia Eagles and pre and post game shows for the Phillies, Flyers, and Washington Nationals.

    The night was abundant with networking, dancing, music, and lots of laughter.  We hope all Midtown Supporters can join us for this special event next year!

    Huge thanks to the host of the event and Midtown Board President, David Ross.
