58th Annual Heart Ball Dazzles in Black, White, Gold and Silver

Sold-out crowd of 800-plus raise funds for American Heart Association

The 58th Annual Heart Ball, chaired by Char Hubble, was an elegant affair that attracted a sold-out crowd of more than 800 guests to The Phoenician. Hubble selected the theme Infinite Hearts for the Nov. 18 black-tie soiree to recognize the infinite possibilities of finding health and healing.

Guests enjoyed cocktails in the foyer and dinner in the Phoenician ballroom, which was beautifully designed in black, white, gold and silver by Jose Graterol Designs. A variety of towering centerpieces and table shapes added to the interest. A special touch at dinner was the delivery of pre-dinner bourbon in flasks to male guests and martinis in shakers to female guests. The engraved containers were later retrieved by the wait staff and served as parting gifts. From the moment the ballroom doors opened, guests filled the floor to dance to the music of JB Project.

The executive committee included vice-chairmen Jennifer Moser and Molly Stockley, Sweetheart Lynne Love, chairman-elect Carolyn Jackson, and honorary chairs Sylvia and Joe Shoen.

Heart Ball funds support the work of the American Heart Association. Since its inception, Phoenix Heart Ball volunteers have raised more than $30 million to fight heart disease and stroke. Currently 10 Arizona researchers receive funding from the American Heart Association, totaling in excess of 1.3 million. Today, the Phoenix Heart Ball also is engaged in educational and preventative programs in the community, including the Halle Heart Children’s Museum, which is visited by more than 30,000 Arizona school children annually.
