Laissez les bon temps roule! (Let the good times roll!) This was the cry of the day as the nation focused upon and prepared for Superbowl XLVII, being held in New Orleans, LA. It was also the cry for The Baltimore City Club of The National Association of Negro Business and Professional Women's Clubs, Inc. as they hosted a card party to raise money for scholarships.
Carrie Singleton-Jeter was the committee chairperson who organized the event over a period of three months.
The members of the organization, dressed in club colors of red and yellow, hosted a crowd of approximately 100 people. The invitees first enjoyed a delicious lunch which consisted of fried chicken, green beans, macaroni and cheese, candied yams, iced tea and cheesecake.
After lunch, the fun began. Attendees broke off into various groups to enjoy their preferences of card games including: Bridge, Pinochle, Pokeno, Sevens, and Bingo.
Prizes were awarded to the winners of each game.
A raffle was held as well with prizes including a Visa gift card, Kindle E-reader and 32" flat screen television.
This annual event for the Baltimore City Club was held Saturday February 2nd at Baltimore's The Forum, 4210 Primrose Avenue. The funds raised will benefit scholarships for selected students.
The president of the Baltimore City Club of NANBPWC, Inc. is Darleen Thomas.
