BOOM Goes Out: The Black and White Ball

BOOM Goes Out: The Black and White Ball

The provocative and newly annual Black and White Ball has been revived in high style by Decidedly Jazz as their flagship fundraiser. The Decidedly Jazz Fundraiser was originally hosted at the Fairmont Palliser Hotel, but its rumoured the party was seen as simply being too wild and for the upscale atmosphere of one of Calgary’s most opulent venues.  A few years later, and popular demand resulted in last night’s return of one of Calgary’s most standout events. The Ball and White Ball left us buzzing and possibly a little limp from too much ‘jazz hands’!

Set on the first and second floors of the decadent Fairmont Palliser Hotel, guests enjoyed fabulous jazz bands, delicious bites, a silent auction, and (a personal BOOM highlight) impromptu dance performances by the talented members of Decided Jazz Danceworks.

IMG_1862IMG_1862 IMG_1862Calgary socialites never shy away from a chance to support local arts and culture- or to step out on the town in style. Guests were out in full-fashion-force, in a mixture of New-Orleans jazz age and ballet inspired ensembles. Feathers everywhere, and- of course- almost exclusively in black and white.
