It’s never too early to start planning for a major event such as West U’s Park Lovers Ball — and five newly named chairs are already hard at work for the landmark 25th anniversary gala.
Judy and Comfort Cheng and Michele and Paul Marvin will be chairing the ball, “Celebrating Our Parks,” which will honor all the past chairs. Sami Morrison is serving as underwriting chair.
The city’s premier social event will take place from 7 p.m.-midnight Feb. 13, 2016, at the Omni Riverway Hotel. As always, plans include dinner, dancing, silent and live auctions, the Big Board, and wine and whiskey pulls.
Proceeds from the ball benefit the Friends of West University Place Parks Fund, Inc., a nonprofit organization which has raised more than $5 ½ million to develop and improve the city’s parks and green spaces.
