13th Annual Twilight on the Terrace

A couple hundred folks gathered at Gertrude’s at the BMA to enjoy a perfect summer evening at the annual fundraiser for The Pride Center of Maryland.

There was plenty of food, drink and mingling in the BMA sculpture garden set against the setting sun.
As night fell, the deejay cranked things up…
…and the dancing commenced.
