The Red & White Ball returned to the Plaza on Sunday as close to 400 guests ate, drank and danced the night away. Special guest and television personality, Jan Wahl judged the hat contest, bestowing top honors on Ligia Booker for her well-thought out hat full of La Luz memorabilia.
Traditionally held in the Plaza, this year’s event venue was changed to the barracks in the Sonoma State Historic Park. The intimate setting was the perfect spot for local wineries to show off their finest red and white varietals while local caterers and restaurants wooed hungry patrons with the seasons best. Joey Altman’s Backburner Blues Band kept guests on their toes throughout the night.
And while ticket sales and fund-a-need donations are still being tallied, by all accounts, the evening was a success, helping to fill the coffer of beneficiary, La Luz and Vineyard Workers Services.
