Celebrating 50 years in Palm Beach, the annual Winter Ball black-tie event is one of the most prominent and well-attended galas of the season. The evening event begins with a delectable cocktail hour in the Mediterranean Ballroom. The affair continues in the Venetian Ballroom, where guests will enjoy dinner, dancing and a live auction. This year our guests will be able to enjoy a 10-piece multi-style big band dance orchestra led by Bob Hardwick.
The Winter Ball supports Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County, which is comprised of 17 Club sites serving more than 10,000 youth ages 6 to 18. The Clubs provide award-winning developmental programs to help youth build skills, self-esteem, and values during non-school hours and summer camp opportunities.
Event chair is Gretchen Leach joined by Co-Chairs Tom C. Quick, Jean & Tom Rutherfoord and Helen & Charles Schwab.
