Last year’s ball was a smashing success with a theme of “The GWB Ball goes to Hollywood”; with features in various publications such as Shadders, Applause Africa, and many more displaying fashion, pride, and culture. At the 6th Annual Green, White, & Blue Ball patrons will have the opportunity to grace the red carpet with their elegant attire from different periods in time depicting this years theme “Era’s…Reliving the Sierra Leone Experience.” “Every year we aim to outdo ourselves. It is our 6th year and our ultimate goal is to host an extravaganza that will have our guests fully entertained and anxiously awaiting GWBB7,” says Chair and Founder Mariama Jalloh- Heyward. The vibrant and sophisticated event will highlight Sierra Leoneans making laudable efforts in the community with an awards ceremony spotlighting unsung heroes.
Partial proceeds from The 6th Annual Green, White, & Blue Ball will benefit Schools for Salone, a non- profit that partners with local villages in Sierra Leone, West Africa, to rebuild the schools devastated in the ten-year civil war that ended in 2002.
