Las Patronas offer preview of Jewel Ball ‘Shangri-la’
La Jolla-based women’s philanthropy group Las Patronas held its advisory preview April 25 at the La Jolla Community Center to pull back the cherry blossom branches for a peek at the decor for the 2016 Jewel Ball, themed “Shangri-La.”
Synonymous with earthly paradise and named in honor of the 1933 novel “Lost Horizon,” Shangri-La will feature “the ageless beauty of Asian culture, arts and antiquities,” said chair Kathryn Gayner. The 2015 Jewel Ball raised more than $870,000 for San Diego-area beneficiaries.
The 2016 Jewel Ball “Shangri-La” is set for Saturday, Aug. 6 at La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club. laspatronas.org — Ashley Mackin
