The theme for the ball this year is “under the sea” with the desired attire being listed as “shimmery chic” which is sure to please the fashion fiends out there(don’t forget to check out our picks for best dressed on the day following the event.) The event will be honoring Eva and Michael Chow and will feature an auction which can be viewed now on Paddle8.
