The enchantment of talismans welcomed guests to Las Patronas annual 67th Jewel Ball. Over 800 guests toasted to the Lucky 13 themed event as all 53 volunteer members of the organization dazzled and celebrated with offerings of dancing, an amazing array of food, live music and splendid silent auction items. The yearlong fundraising efforts, along with the culmination of the Ball, have donated almost $17 million to more than 1,000 charitable institutions in San Diego since 1946, all with a little luck and countless volunteer hours!
