Fun In the Sun Anyone & Other BOND Inc News

Boy Did You Miss It
We had such an amazing time at the BOND Girl Game Night. We laughed, we played, we ate and danced, and we BONDed. It was great to be in the company of familiar friends but it was just as special to be in the space with women who too needed a night of pure fun and games. Thank you to all those who came out and even to those who wanted to come but for whatever reason were unable to.

 A special shout out to The COSL (Circle of Self Love) Club. If the truth be told the COSL Girls really stole the show with their famous dance routines. They were so pleasant and we made sure they felt right at home. It felt as if we’ve known them for quite awhile.

If you missed the Game Night not to worry there will be others to come.

My, my, my…BOND Inc is hosting our 2nd Annual Poetry & Presents Event again this year. Last year’s event was a major success and we don’t expect anything less than the best for this year. (click here to see what you missed last year)

This year we’re looking to include a live neo- soul band. Cross your fingers because we’re working on it.  Last time there were poet’s representing DC, MD, VA, DE, PA, NY & NJ. We’ve already began receiving responses from poets who were interested in being apart as far away as Utah. Yes you read that right Utah. We are seeking poets & spoken word artist to bless the mic during this huge event. If you know of any talented poets that would love to be apart have them email us at for more details. We highly recommend that they contact us sooner than later because spots will go fast.  (Click here for details)

Last year we had a full house and this year we don’t expect anything less. We were so overcrowded that we have to move to a larger venue for this year’s Poetry & Presents. We’re looking high and low to find a location that will accommodate the large number anticipated. So if you know of any venues please pass them us at We’d greatly appreciate it.
