The Joffrey Ballet hosted a luncheon recently at the Four Season's to kick off "Cinderella."  "Cindy's Having a Ball" was co-chaired by Whitney Lasky, Shawna Owen and Elena Besser and brought out close to 300 women for a day of fun.  The fashions were so chic and a lot of the ladies were wearing bright spring colors as an antidote to our long winter.  The magical d├ęcor by Jonathan Ryan made everyone feel like fairy princesses!  The event honored long-time Joffrey supporter, Shelley MacArthur Farley, whose many events have raised $1.5 million for this world class ballet company.  There was a video montage of Shelley showcasing her many performances and then Shauna Montgomery, Shelley's sister, and Elena Besser hosted a raffle that included many wonderful items including a pair of custom designed Brian Atwood shoes, a Michael Kors evening gown and a trip to Paris to name a few.   The event was a hit all around for our wonderful Joffrey Ballet.  Kudos to the creative co-chairs Whitney, Shawna and Elena!  "Cinderella" runs through February 28th at the Auditorium Theatre.
