Beach ball chic was paired with black tie flair on September 8th, during the 13th annual GO BO Party
By now, the post Labor Day benefit is practically a Georgetown tradition, with the Johns Family
opening-up the doors to their sprawling 29th Street property each year for the occasion.
The fundraiser was inspired by Bo Johns
' successful battle against cancer, with proceeds earmarked for the Emergency Family Relief Fund at nearby Georgetown Hospital
, where the then sixth grader was forced to stay for 87 days when receiving treatment.
Each year, the party boasts a different, playfully cheeky theme and 2017 was no different. Guests were encouraged to don their finest "island couture" for the night, which combined a buffet dinner with flowing cocktails and a live funk band.
And no one left empty-handed, with all supporters gifted their very own tote bag courtesy of SCOUT
(a chic accessories line co-founded by Bo's parents, Deb and Ben Johns
). It was a (very extended) family celebration, after all!
