Getting Ready for The Joffrey Ballet’s Spring Gala

“Whether you like it or not, people are going to judge you by the way you dress.”

Ruben Harris

The Joffrey Ballet’s Spring Gala to honor the 10th Anniversary of the Women’s Board is coming up (Sunday, May 6) and this is a video of us looking for items to get ready for it.  Again, this event will be a tribute to the Women’s Board who collectively have raised well over $15 million, making them the largest single contributor to this organization.

The night will begin with a performance at the Auditorium Theatre at 6:30PM. Afterward, trolleys will take guests to the Palmer House where a cocktail reception will begin in the State Ballroom around 7:30PM. Finally, the Joffrey Auxiliary Board will be co-hosting a “Grand Finale” party in the Empire Room.
