Las Patronas’ 76th Annual Jewel Ball, “The South Seas,” took attendees on an exotic island escape. The La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club was transformed into a world of lush tropical foliage punctuated with the perfume of colorful flowers and whimsical pops of mid-century Polynesian design. Guests enjoyed mouthwatering flavors of Pacific Island cuisine and tropical cocktails as they strolled through the deep blues reflecting from the sea. Supporters also enjoyed live music by Wayne Foster Entertainment. This year’s beneficiaires included Alpha Project for the Homeless, American Red Cross, Burn Institute, Feeding San Diego, Forever Balboa Park, Old Globe Theatre, and San Diego Humane Society. The 2022 Jewel Ball chair was Megan Cox; Las Patronas president is Tina Boynton.
