The Jewel Ball
2002 was organized as brilliantly as California
Sunshine by Chairwoman Jackie Helm, Co-Chairwomen
Anseth Richards and Cindy Rushing, and the organizing
group, Las Patronas women led by Las Patronas
President Susanna Lipe. The theme was "Color
It California" and it wasn't just elegant
fun, filled with beautiful begowned women and
smartly tuxedo dressed gentleman. It was an
event with a recipe of hard work and generosity
by Las Patronas women, paying guests and volunteers.
