Shop & Champagne BBAC

Nearly 400 patrons packed the house at the Birmingham Bloomfield Art Center (BBAC) for the organization’s signature fundraiser, Shop & Champagne. The event served as a preview party for the BBAC’s annual Holiday Shop. Guests perused and shopped the artwork from over 170 artists while enjoying champagne and a strolling dinner. The revenue generated from Shop & Champagne and the Holiday Shop provides critical support for the BBAC’s Art Access and educational programs as well as working artists. This year’s event raised over $50,000.
