Recap – Masquerade Ball 2017: Bond

| November 21, 2017

On October 27, 2017, we hosted our annual Masquerade Ball, honoring two of our co-founders and celebrating a successful year of fundraising.

Union Station proved to be an elegant backdrop and venue for the Bond theme as 1,200 guests donned their finest tuxedos and gowns, sipped martinis and raised money for children, families and communities around the world.

The evening held plenty of intrigue and mystery along with a VIP sit-down dinner, silent auction, live auction, and a raffle. DJ Ashton Martin and Lost Wax kept the party going late into the evening.

In total, everyone in attendance and those who purchased online silent auction items raised over $670,000!

We recognized a very special guest in attendance – Shy’ane, one of our case grant recipients, who enjoyed the ball with her family. We also announced our sponsor, associate and court members of the year. We send a hearty congratulations and thank you to JE Dunn, Bill Graff and Lynn Sander and Scott Rowe!

Thank you to our 26 Court members, 19 Community Ambassador Board members and 103 volunteers who made this a record-breaking event that James Bond himself would be proud of!
