The theme for our “Winter Ball” at Kissito Healthcare-Hondo could have been “Oh You Beautiful Doll”, but it was “Oh You 50 Beautiful Dolls and Guys. Billie Franklin , pianist, played all the old favorites during the ball, taking the residents on a “Sentimental Journey”.
It felt like the Academy Awards with all the glamor and glitz, flashing of cameras, music and laughter. Ladies dressed in their finest dresses and jewels, men in their bow ties and top hats. The champagne (Welches Sparkling Grape Juice) flowed, finger food and punch was served. Julia Cuellar was voted “Queen” of the Ball. On top of that she was celebrating her 100th birthday with friends and family. Her family brought a delicious cake marking the event. She was escorted by resident “King” Roberto Ochoa.
The “Winter Ball” could not have been possible without the help and donations from the community…. Wish me a rainbow and wish me a star…All this you gave me whereever you are..dreams for my pillow and stars for my eyes, a “Winter Ball” you gave me wins first prize.
