BOTAR – Studio 54 Party

The Lead Bank Rooftop in the Crossroads was converted into Studio 54 for a party hosted by BOTARs Meg Burditt, Anna Harding, Tyler Lockton, Bonnie Longan, Maddie Mann, Claire McCann, Emerson Peavey, Alice Rowland, and Ellie Rose Sachs. The vibe at the October 9th event was distinctly ‘70s, and the music was divinely danceable. BOTARs and Escorts dined on Shake Shack cuisine and enjoyed a lighted dance floor, plus spectacular views of Our Town.

Julie McCann, BOTAR president; Claire McCann, and Mike McCann

 

David Knopke, Sam Wilkerson, Jake Schloegel, and John Foster
