The Art of Healing
We just couldn’t let one of our favorite social events in RVA pass without sharing its annual spectacular-ness with you. The Children’s Hospital Foundation Ball never fails to impress, and this year was, once again, no exception. Transforming the various rooms at The Country Club of Virginia’s Westhampton clubhouse into galleries filled with larger-than-life references to the works of some of the world’s most beloved and recognizable artists, the Hospital Foundation’s Junior Board wowed its nearly 700 guests. We are delighted to capture all the details that partygoers and those who couldn’t attend might have missed.
The main ballroom became the artist’s home in Giverney in all of its floral and Impressionistic splendor.

Wow! Did you catch all the details, big and small? Congratulations to the Junior Board for another smashing success. We love spreading the joy of your works for the benefit of the smallest patients in RVA!
