The secret’s out: Rhode Island’s best party is turning 15 this March 3, and you’ll need your alias and a code word to enter, darling! This year’s PPS Winter Bash, entitled Glitz & Glamour: A Speakeasy Affair, is hosted by Alex and Ani. The Bash was named both “Best Local Event-Providence” and “Best Nonprofit Fundraiser-Statewide” by Rhode Island Monthly in 2017. 

Admission includes performances by Miss Katie Kleyla & The Italians and Providence Swings; DJ entertainment by All That Events; photo booth fun by WRIK Entertainment and vintage photo opps by Suite Tarte Pin-Up; and complimentary bites from local restaurants and vendors. A cash bar, with proceeds also benefiting PPS, is stocked by McLaughlin & Moran, The Avery and Rhode Island Distributing Co. VIP ticket-holders receive entrée into a private speakeasy lounge presented by Uniquely Chic Vintage Rentals, featuring bottomless bubbles by Bottles plus decadent hors d’oeuvres and tastings. Costumes are optional but encouraged.

Now in its 15th year, the Bash showcases the potential in historic city buildings and supports the PPS mission to improve Providence through preservation and thoughtful design and planning. The 2018 venue, ALCO, was once home to such Industrial Era-giants as Rhode Island Locomotive Works, American Locomotive Works and US Rubber. The period-appropriate event will be held in the final section of ALCO to be rehabilitated as commercial space by The Foundry Associates.
