The 58th annual Heart Ball Addressing Luncheon was held recently at the Phoenician Resort in the Camelback Ballroom.  The traditional fall gathering of Heart Ball Committee members and guests featured the first glimpse of the Heart Ball invitation, official committee photos and a festive luncheon.

Attendees enjoyed catching up with each other regarding summer activities while hard at work with the assembly of the stunning Heart Ball invitation. The Heart Ball Committee supported the vision of this year’s Chair, Char Hubble, by adorning colorful designer attire head-to-toe in their favorite shades.

Following the invitation stuffing, the guests were serenaded as they entered the ballroom and were presented with tray-passed glasses of champagne. The décor of the ballroom beautifully illustrated this year’s colorful theme with custom table linens, artistic place mats and towering fern centerpieces. The Addressing Luncheon Committee was co-chaired by Kimberly Jacobsen and Marilyn Alexander.

Char Hubble welcomed the attendees, followed by a glamorous, couture ball gown fashion show presented by Neiman Marcus. Each gown was more exquisite than the last, with creations by Oscar de la Renta, Carolina Herrera, Zac Posen, Jenny Packham, Talbot Runhof and Monique Lhuillier, to name a few designers. Following the fashions, a creative, gourmet brunch was served, complete with individual macarons served under a miniature glass dome.
