Kansas City Ballet Guild’s Ballet Ball 2012

On Saturday, March 3rd, the much anticipated Ballet Ball, a fund-raising event presented by the Kansas City Ballet Guild, honored the Kansas City Ballet’s new home, the Todd Bolender Center of Dance & Creativity, at the InterContinental Hotel on the Plaza. Guests enjoyed a lively cocktail party with delicious cuisine by Chef Chris Hall, breathtaking decor by Chuck Matney and Randy Halsey, and crowd pleasing entertainment with KOKOMO and the Kansas City Ballet. Ballet Ball Chairmen Julia Irene Kauffman and Lauren Muriel-Marion LaPointe thanked guests for their support of the Kansas City Ballet and recognized dancer Kimberly Cowen’s retirement after her 20-year career with Kansas City Ballet. Before dancing the night away, Guild President Kimberlee Ried honored the late Mrs. Sally Kemper Wood with the 2012 Pirouette Award for her commitment to the performing arts.
