104th Charity Ball 2013
'When You Wish Upon A Star"
The 104th Charity Ball at the legendary Hotel Del Coronado served up a beautiful 'When You Wish Upon A Star' theme February 16th, 2013.
The elegant ball was designed in themes of blue and stars. The true stars were the patrons who came to support the evening's beneficiary, The Peckham Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders at Rady Children's Hospital.
Among the guests there for the evening were Barbara and Dr. Bill McColl, Dotti Howe, Kathleen and Ned Buoymaster, Dulie and Dr. John Ahlering, Rita and Richard Atkinson, Vicky and Chris Eddy, Jane and Tom Fetter, Penny and Harold Dokmo, Bonnie and Scody Hage, the Charity Ball Co-Chair Kim Miller, unstoppable with an arm cast, and her husband Cary Miller, and the Charity Ball Chair Nancie Geller and her husband Marc Geller.
Nancie Geller had this to say later about the ball.
"A dazzling, glittering, star-filled evening making 'healthy wishes' come true for the children at The Peckham Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders."
Guests enjoyed a superlative dinner before the trumpets sounded, and the Wayne Foster Orchestra drew patrons away to the Grand Ballroom for dancing.....until quite late!
Fun Fact - Carley's Magical Garden at the Acute Care Pavilion located outside the Peckham Center is an inspirational and whimsical draw for children. With interactive fun like a tree house that can be crawled inside, and golden eggs hidden about. When all twelve golden eggs are found, the child can place a wish in a special golden locket on the neck of a mosaic bird named Marisa. Wishes are then later collected by the staff to better understand the needs of these special little patients.
..... by the way the garden is specially constructed with artificial grass and the like to keep the risk of infection from germs and mold to a minimum.
