Join the Rhode Island Black Heritage Society at the Old Brick Schoolhouse in Providence for the annual Boys' Bow-Tie Event. The Boys' Bow-Tie Event is a chance for boys ages 6-12 to learn to tie a bow-tie and a number of other useful skills to know as they transition into young adulthood. Attendees will be instructed by Casby Harrison, Esq. and other mentors on how to properly shake hands and introduce themselves in public. Attendees are asked to wear a collared shirt. Refreshments will be served during the event.
All Participants Get A Free Bow-Tie For Attending!
The Boys' Bow-Tie Event is free to attend. If you would like to sponsor a child by covering the cost of his bow-tie you can donate to the Rhode Island Black Heritage Society by using either this site or sending a check to our office at 123 North Main Street, Providence, RI 02903. The cost to sponsor a child is $15.
