Las Patronas presents its 77th annual Jewel Ball, titled Daisies & Disco, which will whisk guests back to the era of peace, love, and funk.
“This year, step back in time to 1977 and let our bright colors and fun surroundings bring a smile to your face. As the sun sets, get ready to boogie the night away to your favorite disco tunes,” says Mio Hood, Jewel Ball chair, who will be joined by co-chairs Jill Peters and Jessica Castagnola, and tables chairs Michelle La Greca and Stephanie Stone. “We are proud to continue our tradition of giving and thank our sponsors, advertisers, donors, and vendors for their unwavering support,” says Las Patronas President Julie Bubnack. Eight major beneficiaries will each receive a grant of more than $20,000 to fund a critically needed capital item. The 2023 major beneficiaries include Barrio Logan College Institute, Emilio Nares Foundation, Just in Time for Foster Youth, La Jolla Playhouse, Nativity Prep Academy, Rise Up Industries, Serving Seniors, and Urban Corps of San Diego County.
