Guests at the 10th Annual Fairy Tale Ball will spend a magical evening in the Land of Oz when the Diamond Angels of Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital Foundation host the popular event on Saturday, November 16 at 7 p.m. at The Westin Diplomat Resort & Spa. Event-goers will follow the yellow brick road and mingle with Dorothy, Tin Man, Scarecrow and the Cowardly Lion, along with other fantastically memorable characters in the ballroom, which will be transformed into the fascinating world of “The Wizard of Oz.”
The 2013 Diamond Angels Fairy Tale Ball co-chairs are Allison Antevy, Elizabeth Jacobs and Robin Steinman.
“There is no place like home.” Just as Dorothy wished to go home, every parent who has a child hospitalized wants their child to return home. Physicians and hospital staff at Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital provide world-class care 24/7 so pediatric patients can get well as quickly as possible. Funds raised from the gala will help make this happen.
The fantasy-themed evening will feature a cocktail reception, dinner, dancing and an auction. The highlight will be an intimate musical performance headlined by Joan Jett & the Blackhearts. The band will perform many of their chart-topping hits including “I Love Rock ‘n’ Roll,” “Crimson and Clover,” and “I Hate Myself for Loving You,” plus songs from their latest album, Unvarnished, which was released in September. Attendees will also enjoy a smashing opening performance by Jack Blades & Kelly Keagy of Night Ranger, known for their power ballad “Sister Christian” and their rock anthem “Rock in America”.
Throughout the night, Mike Marino, aka DJ 1Tre, will keep the beat pumping while comedian George Gray, announcer for “The Price is Right” and host of “The Weakest Link,” returns with his signature humor to emcee the festivities. Auction prizes include designer accessories, sports and entertainment packages, five-star vacations, cruises and staycations.
