Denver is home to the number one respiratory hospital in the country, National Jewish Health. That may not resonate for those who take their breathing for granted, equivalent to blinking an eye. But for those who fight for air, National Jewish Health is a blessing, a beacon and a lifeline to preeminent research, life-saving answers, and compassionate care. In celebration and support of this outstanding institution, more than 1,100 guests attended the 2010 Beaux Arts Ball, which raised $2.2 million to benefit National Jewish Health.
Romantic foliage, ornamental gazebos and gorgeous rising-green centerpieces gave life to this year’s theme “Midnight in the Garden.” The imagery didn’t end there, though, as women lined up to have blooming flowers or nature scenes delicately painted on their shoulders, arms or backs. The added artwork was the perfect accessory to the glamorous gowns showcased at the event.
