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 Childrenâ€™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 â€œThe Wizard of Oz.â€Â The 2013 Diamond Angels Fairy Tale Ball co-chairs are Allison Antevy, Elizabeth Jacobs and Robin Steinman.
â€œThere is no place like home.â€ 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 Childrenâ€™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 â€œI Love Rock â€˜nâ€™ Roll,â€ â€œCrimson and Clover,â€ and â€œI Hate Myself for Loving You,â€ 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 â€œSister Christianâ€ and their rock anthem â€œRock in Americaâ€.
The special ambassadors are babies and children who have undergone treatment at the hospital. Ambassadors include a set of triplets, twins and other former pediatric patients who will always be a part of the family at Joe DiMaggio Childrenâ€™s Hospital.Â Tickets for the Fairy Tale Ball cost $250 per person.
