10th Annual BULA Cocktail Party

Just this month, BULA held its 10th annual backyard fundraiser – The BULA Cocktail Party.  At its founding in 2007, this fundraiser served as the catalyst to BULA’s later success, becoming the pillar of BULA’s funding strategy.  Each passing year, it also serves as an opportunity for those committed to BULA’s work to get together and reflect on the years’ accomplishments.  Needless to say, it was a remarkable feeling to put on this event for the 10th time.
