Welcome! The Silver and Turquoise Board of Hostesses has the delight of continuing one of Tucson’s longest running community celebrations, the Silver and Turquoise Ball. A beloved tradition since 1950, the Ball is one of the loveliest gala events in our city. It celebrates what makes Tucson a special place to live: the mix of cultures that contribute to our vibrant community life, the strong creative influence of the arts, the presence of history all around us, and the dedicated people who work hard, give generously and lead with intelligence to make Tucson a wonderful city.
Each year, proceeds from the Silver and Turquoise Ball support the preservation of Tucson’s historical traditions and diverse cultural heritage. The Ball is a beautiful, magical party that celebrates Tucson. These are words from those who’ve attended the Ball over the years: It is “one of the last examples of gracious, old Tucson…”, “vintage Tucson at its very best…”, “a big happy memory of flowers, colors, beautiful gowns and silver and turquoise…”, “spectacular…intoxicating…” with “elegant traditions, gorgeous gardens and fabulous food…”, “lighted candles inside, dancing under the stars outside…”, and “magnificent floral and silver centerpiece displays that rise above the buffet dinner. So many times it takes my breath away.” These words capture so well the special experience of this memorable annual event at the Arizona Inn.
We hope you will join us for the 66th Annual Silver and Turquoise Ball on April 30, 2016 – a tradition that celebrates our community’s culture and heritage
