Help Us Celebrate Our 75th at BAPA’s Big Night!  

  1. People were flocking to the theaters to see “Miracle on 34th Street,” Christian Dior introduced longer, slimmer skirts that silhouetted a lady’s shape, and while business wear for men leaned on suits with wide lapels, the guys were slipping into Hawaiian shirts when off the clock. Everyone was dancing to big band music and bartenders were serving Sidecar cocktails and Gin Rickeys. 

From sea to shining sea, there was a party going on and that’s just what you can expect when neighbors get together to celebrate our 75th anniversary at BAPA’s Big Night!  

A lot has happened in our beautiful community between October 14, 1947 when BAPA filed its articles of incorporation and today as BAPA and friends are planning a party to celebrate that event.  

It’s all coming together on Sat., Jan 21 with music by the Outcast Jazz Band, dancing, open bar, and hors d’oeuvres from 7 to 10 p.m., and DJ, more dancing, pizza, and cash bar 10 p.m. to midnight at The Vineyard, 2105 W. 95th St.  

We’re raising funds for the next 75 years of BAPA’s services! Tickets ae $100 per person in advance at and $125 at the door. Limited tickets available.  

Details are still being planned but make sure you put BAPA’s Big Night on your calendar now!
