The 65th annual Jewel Ball hosted by Las Patronas (a dedicated group of volunteers) was held August 6th, 2011 at the La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club.

And it sparkled like Sapphire. The decor, the gowns and the jewels.....

Guests arrived through an aquatically transformed club. The entrance was flanked in walls of blue hues, bubble lighting and aquarium portholes with fish eyeing the smartly dressed black tie crowd.

Performers from Aerial Revolution walked on stilts, and did pretzel like contortions on a platform over the pool.

Cocktails were enjoyed as well as sushi from Cafe Japengo and mini-sliders from Sammy's.

Among those there were Joe and Cathy Andrews, John and Elizabeth Andrews, Emma Zuckerman and Leo Zuckerman, Elisabeth Bergan and Peter Caruso, Lee Clark and Dr. Jerry Pikolysky, Lise Wilson and Steve Strauss, Dianne and Jim Bashor, Shirley and Ken Hinckley, Colleen and Augusto Angelucci, Erin and Keith Wyer, and Jeanne and Bill Larson.

More there included Tricia and Bill Kellogg, Tiffany Kellogg, Guylyn and Scott Cummins, Hollace Rice and Jeremiah Sullivan, Natasha Reiss and Eric Johnson, Valerie and Harry Cooper, Susan Dunn and Robert Mani, Kimberly Butterwick and Jonathan Scheff, Jill and Joe Cutri, Tricia and Bill Kellogg, Laura Linden and Mitch Goldman, Liz and Peter Gotfredson, Barbara and Mike Mulligan, Sue and Ed Piegza, Darlene Shiley, and Royce and John Campbell.

Jewel Ball chair Sue Wagener wore a sapphire colored Talbot Runhoff gown, co-chair Elaine Murphy wore a blue BCBG, and co-chair Pat Marsch was in a pretty fluttery number by Tadashi. Blue of course!

Las Patronas member and floral designer Kathryn Gayner designed the dinner table centerpieces of 4 foot tall bubble lights dripping with seashells, starfish and more. All coordinated with Jewel Ball designer Kathy Broekema did a superb job tying in the Sapphire theme to resemble a happy aquatic adventure.

Dinner by the Hyatt Regency La Jolla started with a lobster salad, followed by a ‘surf and turf’ entrée of tenderloin of beef and grilled lemon shrimp, followed by a cheese plate and a trio of desserts including key lime pie.

Dancing went non-stop until 1 am with the sounds of Liquid Blue. This is one Jewel Ball that will go down in history as having and keeping everyone on the dance floor!

Major beneficiaries for this year’s Jewel Ball include: La Jolla Playhouse; REINS Therapeutic Horsemanship Program; San Diego Fire Rescue Foundation, San Diego Food Bank Corporation; and UCSD Shiley Eye Center.
