Midyear Luncheon

| August 28, 2018 | Parties

Carolyn Jackson hosted the Phoenix Heart Ball executive committee at a midyear luncheon, ahead of November’s main event, at The Phoenician Resort.

THE PARTY The 59th annual Heart Ball committee and guests sat down to the decadently set tables at The Phoenician for a bruncheon to discuss this year’s event, appropriately themed Driven Hearts. THE GUESTS Chairman-elect Kristine Thompson chatted with chairman and woman-of-the-moment Carolyn Jackson. Ingrid Hass nibbled on croissant and parfait alongside fellow vice chairman Sylvia Shoen. Heart Ball Sweetheart Beth McRae, as well as honorary chairs Nan Howlett and C.A. Howlett, were in the crowd as well. THE HIGHLIGHTS In addition to the jam, Danishes and macarons on the table, even more enticing treats resided in orange Herm├Ęs bags on the gift table. The fashionable lot of ladies enjoyed a fun afternoon of chatter and food while also getting down to business for the highlight of Phoenix’s charity scene, which benefits the lifesaving mission of the American Heart Association. -Lauren Loudermilk
