Butterflies & Blues 2016

Monday, October 17, 2016


Follow the neon lights of B.B. King Blues Club’s 42nd Street marquee in Times Square to our Inaugural Butterflies & Blues: a cocktail party to benefit The Rita Langworthy Foundation!

Join us as our Emcee, stage and screen actor Scott McIntyre, leads us through an evening of laughter, love and not-so-gentle nudges, as we all join forces to meet our fundraising goal of $50,000 for the evening.

Be sure to grab your friends and stop by the LA Photo Party Slow Motion Video Station as it records a 5 second clip of you throwing confetti and shooting off streamers as you dance and jump to the live grooves of renowned musician, John Kruth, and his friends, then instantly transforms it into a slow motion video for you to upload onsite to social media.

Get ready to mix, mingle, nibble, nosh, drink, donate, bid and boogie, the night away!
