HonorHealth Foundation presented its annual Night of Gold at the Arizona Biltmore on Oct. 28. Embracing the roaring ’20s theme, the 360 guests arrived in flapper dresses and pin-striped suits to enjoy drinks at the speakeasy bar and listen to swing music from The Instant Classics. The evening benefited HonorHealth Desert Mission.
