On Sat August 3rd 2019, The 73rd Jewel Ball, “Wonderland”, gave the key to a journey down the rabbit hole, into a fantasy world where the impossible was possible.
Sipping on the signature cocktail guests found a ‘shrunken’ who was surrounded by giant flowers, butterflies and mushrooms. The Queen of Hearts invited the guests to a game of croquet with her flamingo mallets. A deck of cards came to life, and the roses were properly painted red. Guests then whisked into the Mad Hatter’s Ballroom where playful and elegant collide in the most wonderful way!
The first Jewel Ball gala was held in 1947 – attracting 200 guests, and raising $1,357. At that time, La Patronas included 14 members who contributed handmade decorations. Today, the 50 active members of Las Patronas proudly carry on the traditions of our founding members.
