As the signature event for the ABOA, we'd be honored for you to join us at Bubbles & Barrels to create AND celebrate our impact in the fight against cancer. All proceeds from the event will benefit the American Cancer Society to help advance research, patient support and much needed hope.
Guests can expect to travel back to the era of prohibition parties and experience the new Roaring (20)20's, as we toast to the accomplishments of the Society, the strength of our survivors, and the passion of our community to create  a world without cancer... 

Throughout the event, there will be on-theme entertainment, a silent auction, flowing libations from local vendors, carnival games for all ages, a Charleston-worthy dance floor, and more to ensure a swell time for a swell cause.

local health department guidance including event size.
Thank you for your partnership in this endeavor.
