WASHINGTON, DC MARCH 26, 2013: Mark your calendars for April 27th, 2013 as The Green White and Blue Commission, bring you their annual ball celebrating Sierra Leone’s 52nd Independence. We are pleased to announce that the 5th Annual Green, White, and Blue Ball will take place at the illustrious and newly renovated historical Howard Theatre, (620 T St NW,Washington, DC 20001). 

For the 5th Annual Green, White, and Blue Ball alongside The GWB Commission’s parent company Abstracts Events, partners include: Face2Face Africa, Applause Africa Magazine, Prince Zamira Photography, Runaworks Studios, Bella Naija, Restycle, African Lime Light, and Miss Dunnie O. This night of cultured elegance will feature upbeat sounds provided by DJ Lebbie and DJ No Name as well as live performances by international artist Janka Nabay and the Bubu Gang; African media mogul, Farai Gundan will serve as the event’s Mistress of Ceremonies.

Last year’s ball was a smashing success with a theme of “Going Back to Our Roots”; at this year’s ball patrons will have the opportunity to grace the red carpet and put on full display their elegant attire. "Every year we aim to outdo ourselves. It is our 5th year and our ultimate goal is to host an extravaganza that will have our guests fully entertained and anxiously awaiting GWBB6,” says founder and co-chairwoman Mrs. Mariama Jalloh-Heyward. 

The vibrant and sophisticated event will highlight Sierra Leoneans making laudable efforts in the community; this year’s honorees include international ballerina Michaela DePrince, Olympic track and field star Ms. Ola Sesay, and Humanitarian Ms. Liesel Renner of the Visao Foundation. Partial proceeds from the 5th Annual Green, White, and Blue Ball will benefit the Throne Room Orphanage and Educational Center (www.troec.org), a Fairfax, Virginia based non-profit organization that assists youth who were orphaned during Sierra Leone’s 11-year civil war.

Sponsors for this year’s event include: F2FA Magazine, Arik Air, Miss Jessie's, and Jabs Group Incorporated. Tickets for this year’s ball are available for sale at: greenwhiteandblueball5.eventbrite.com.
