Almost 250 guests attended Ryan House’s Signature White Christmas Gala in the Gold Room at the Arizona Biltmore on Dec. 7. Guests enjoyed a festive evening to kick off the holiday season as they celebrated The Board of Visitors Ryan House.
The annual event is held as a thank you to those who support Ryan House’s mission to provide respite and end-of-life care to children with life-limiting conditions. The elegant evening raised $235,000 in direct support of the nonprofit organization.
The evening began with the Luke Air Force Honor Guard presenting the colors in recognition of Pearl Harbor Day. Artists of Convergence Ballet Company followed with a performance, and then guests enjoyed dinner and dancing to the music of The Hamptons.
Petals owner Jennifer Grant created blooming white floral arrangements with green accents in keeping with the White Christmas theme. In spite of the rainy evening, guests enjoyed the event’s magical snowfall tradition on the patio outside the Gold Room.
Pepper Kincaid-Sizer and Jennifer Whitesides co-chaired the evening, and Karie Dozer served as emcee.
