Description

The Philadelphia Association of Black Journalists is hosting its annual members-only pool party on Saturday, August 19, 2017!! This is an opportunity for PABJ members to fellowship, network and re-energize for the last quarter of the year. This year's theme is "Welcome Back"- with a "Carnival" flair, which represents us uniting our spirits from the summer's convention and throw in some Caribbean culture as well as to welcome new members who are joining!

PABJ will be providing a gourmet cookout buffet and open bar for you to enjoy throughout. Please feel free to bring your bathing suit, favorite side dish and any bottles you like! Fresh food will be served between 4pm and 6:30pm. Chef Nah Rutling of the LaRue Group will be providing her time and talents to prepare the food for the event. In addition, PABJ will feature party mixes by a DJ O'Boyy! This event is sponsored by KiKi Vodka-- if you haven't heard of them- wait til the party. Johnny's Cakes will be on site to provide their delicious treats for dessert. We will also be having our second annual "PABJ Simone Manuel Swimming Competition"! Bring your goggles and your competitive spirit. Rules will be shared before the event. There will be first, second and third prize winners announced! This will be a time to remember!

This is an exclusive PABJ member event! Members pay $10 (+processing fees) and are invited to bring one non-member guest at the price of $20 (+ processing fees). In connection with our Carribbean "Welcome Back" theme, guests are encouraged (not enforced) to invite a fellow non-member who is a journalist who might be interested in being apart of PABJ. Proceeds from the event go to PABJ operating costs and our scholarship fund and are tax deductible. The address and directions to this exclusive event will be emailed only to the paid RSVP list to protect the privacy of our host.

A Look Back: Thank you to the legendary Ms. Eleanor "EJ" Jean Hendley formerly of CBS-3, who opened her lovely home to PABJ for our annual pool party two years in a row. This year, she has agreed to host us again and we're very grateful for her continuous gratitude and support during this special fellowship.
