Hope and Will Ball April 2018

Modern Luxury | April 19, 2018 | Parties

Over 600 warmhearted guests joined together at The St. Regis Atlanta for the 15th annual Hope and Will Ball.
THE PARTY Dressed in black-tie attire, supporters of Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta kick-started their elegant evening with an exquisite cocktail hour and silent auction—where items such as beautiful artwork by local and renowned artists, courtside seats to an Atlanta Hawks game and a relaxing getaway to Kiawah Island, S.C., were up for grabs to the highest bidder—before heading to their seats to revel in a three-course dinner (think compressed melon, beef tenderloin and a bevy of pastries and desserts). THE GUESTS Elaine and John Carlos, ball chairs Bonnie and William Curtis, honoree Mary Ellen Imlay, Stacey and Paul Ollinger, Ann and Will Shearer THE HIGHLIGHTS The night’s grand total? A jawdropping $1,032,170.72—the largest amount raised in the ball’s 15-year history. We’ll certainly raise a glass to that! -Dana Gardner
