Ballard Begins Season with a Friendraiser


Emily Jenkins Loftus and Myra Jenkins Emily Jenkins Loftus and Myra Jenkins For the seventh year, Carol and Les Ballard hosted a fundraiser for the Friends of Ballard Park. This year the party was held under a tent on their Edgehill estate. More than 250 people attended the cocktail soiree, which featured food by McGrath Clambakes, Inc., music by The Ben Shaw Quartet and a terrific silent auction, with items like a cruise for 25 aboard one of Mc- Millen Yachts' luxury vessels. Mr. Ballard hand selected wines for the event and all of the guests received a gift bag from Sequin.

More than $55,000 was raised to support educational field trips and family friendly events at Ballard Park, like the recent Father’s Day Hike and the upcoming free Wednesday music performances in July, beginning July 9. Another summer-time favorite is the Mad Hatter Iced Tea Party slated for Monday, August 4. For more on Ballard Park programming, visit ballardpark.org.
