Twisted Pink Masquerade Ball

The Gillespie hosted the wonderful, Twisted Pink Masquerade Ball on Feb 7. Twisted Pink is a themed gala with a cocktail hour, dinner, silent auction, and a talk by Lara MacGregor, a Twisted Pink Board Member, who was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer in January 2014. The dinner program was followed by musical entertainment featuring Burning Las Vegas. The Mardi Gras Lounge was also open and featured a New Orleans vibe and included a bar, desserts, and more.
