Despite a late spring chill coupled with the threat of rain, nothing could hold back The Sweetheart Ball patrons from attending the cocktail reception on Friday, April 28. In addition to supporting Ball Chair Amy Prestidge’s fundraising for heart disease research, the setting for the party was a sight to behold.
Thanks to family connections that included Amy’s dad being Jerry Ford and her stepmother/2012 Sweetheart Ball Chair Kelli O. Ford, the site was Kelli’s and Jerry’s magnificent mansion in Volk Estates.
Not only did the picture-perfect settings and delicious servings surpass expectations, the guests themselves did themselves proud looking quite splendiferous with white being the fashionable look of the night thanks to Nancy Dedman, Annette Simmons, Heather Washburne and Linda Custard.
But that’s not to say that splashes of bright colors weren’t provided by Lisa Troutt, Patty Dedman Nail, Myrna Schlegel, Kimberly Schlegel Whitman and Pam Perella.
