iBAM! Virtual Programming Scheduled for December 12 and 13

You can leave your tuxedos, suits, fancy gowns and dresses in the closet, curl up on your couch at home and watch the 12th Annual iBAM! Gala Awards Presentation on December 11th.

Tickets to the Gala start at only $75 and there is a discount for a group purchase. Tickets entitle you to a passcode to watch the approximately one hour awards show, and it comes with an Irish Gift Box of Winston’s Irish Soda Bread, Irish teabags, and other great surprises as a thank you for buying your ticket. Each ticket bought gets you the Irish Gift Box, so we will need the name and address of where to send it too (in the Continental United States only!)
