70th Anniversary Gala – The Links, Inc. Baltimore Chapter

70th Anniversary Gala – The Links, Inc. Baltimore Chapter

A celebratory air filled the Marriott Waterfront mezzanine as folks gathered to celebrate the 70 years of the Baltimore Chapter of The Links, Inc., one of the oldest and largest volunteer service organizations of professional women of color.

During the cocktail hour, guests had a chance to catch up with old friends…

…and grab a few pics against a beautiful white flower wall.

Then, it was into the ballroom for a seated dinner.
