Thank you to the vendors who supplied the art, gear, & grub. Thank you to the volunteers who dedicated their Saturday to helping us make the #B2BBB happen. And of course, thank you to everyone who came out to dance for a good cause! All proceeds from the Block Bash will be going to Radical Hospitality at Broad Street Ministries, and we will be continuing to work with them on other fundraising events! If you care to check out the vibes, you can head to the Facebook Album or our Instagram Highlight. We are thrilled with how everything went, but we are even more excited to bring it back next year, bigger and better. Finally, if you couldn’t make it out to the Block Bash, but still would like to contribute to the cause, please head to Broad Street Ministries to get involved or donate!
