Held in a huge space in The Riverside Church, A Royal Ball in Harlem brought out some of Harlem’s best dressed. Of course, the Harlem Haberdsahery team led the way. Sharene Wood, Guy Wood Sr. Kells Barnett and Louis Johnson, Jr were all impeccably dressed. Immediately upon entering the venue, guests were treated to some of Crown Royal’s best and after a quick stop at the photo booth it was time to party.

It was definitely a fun night at the Fifth Annual Harlem Haberdashery 2018 Masquerade Ball. A good time for a good cause, #TakeCareofHarlem.
