Junior League to host New Year’s masquerade ball

The Junior League of San Diego will celebrate its New Year’s Eve of the Eve Inaugural Masquerade Ball from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m. Dec. 30 at the Estancia La Jolla Hotel and Spa.

Masks are optional, though more fun as guests mingle, dance, and play at the poker and black jack tables. Hors d’oeuvres and desserts will be served. There will be a nonhosted bar.

At midnight, league president Tina Campbell will choose the most creative mask and award a prize to the winner.

Rooms, exclusively available to Eve of the Eve guests, will be discounted to $129. Make a reservation, by calling (858) 550-1000. Valet parking will be complimentary.

Tickets are $75 per person at and must be bought by Dec. 23. Masks will be sold at the door for $5. Black-tie optional or masquerade attire. The Estancia La Jolla Hotel and Spa is at 9700 N. Torrey Pines Road, La Jolla.
