Celebrating ONE Sierra Leone! The GWB Commission hosts the 7th Annual Green, White, & Blue Ball in Maryland




Mark your calendars for April 23rd, 2016 as The GWB Commission will be bringing you their annual gala celebrating Sierra Leone’s 55th year of independence.

“For the 7th Annual GWB Ball, The GWB Commission’s campaign for a ONE Sierra Leone is a call to action to bring Sierra Leoneans together as ONE heart, ONE country, and ONE people first and foremost in the name of Sierra Leone’s betterment, prosperity, and future. “This campaign is a representation of what we want to see Sierra Leone as, but also keeping true to our respective traditional cultures and traditions. After all, what makes Sierra Leone special is the fact that we are a tiny melting pot of differences yet we are very tolerant of one another.” says Co-Chair and marketing director Sarran Lan Jabbie.

The 7th Annual Green, White, & Blue Ball will take place at the elegant and dynamic music and entertainment concert hall, The Fillmore Silver Spring. This night of cultured elegance will feature upbeat sounds provided by DJ No Name, DJ JasonX and DJ JNYCE as well as a live surprise performance by Sierra Leonean artists.

The GWB Commission has released 3 of 11 images depicting the vision of ONE Sierra Leone accompanied by beautiful poems by Akindele Decker reflecting the differences that ultimately bring Sierra Leoneans together.

      Every year they support an organization on the ground. Let’s worry about our government making an impact. Not everyone is a mother Teresa. The plan an even every yr to make Salone look good. I think that’s impactful to our apperance and how others see us.

    What have we (Sierra Leoneans) accomplished since independence? What are we celebrating? Our country has been in a state of decline for decades. One negative outcome after another stemming from the callousness of politicans/leeches who plunder our resources.
    Sorry but this ball makes no sense! While you are celebrating, mothers are still dying due to avert able child birth complications, millions are living on less than a dollar a day, corruption runs rampant in government………..

      That through all our plights, challenges, and battles we continue to fight through the resilience. We celebrate the future and our potential. If you think it makes no sense, then simply do not attend any event celebrating Sierra Leone’s independence. It’s quite simple really.
