The perfect way to end 2018 fundraising efforts: 20 young women celebrating with family and friends at the Desert Ball on Dec. 22. The 53rd annual event hosted by Desert Foundation Auxiliary drew 600 guests to the Phoenician, where the debutantes from the Scottsdale, Paradise Valley and Carefree areas were presented to the community. White House Design Studio created the silvery blue and winter white décor. Gina Forster chaired the ball, with Wendy Dewane as her co-chair. Proceeds benefit For the Love of Travis and Kids in Focus.
