The 71th Las Floristas Headdress Ball

On May 1, The Ladies of Las Floristas host "An Affair to Remember 2009", The 71st Las Floristas Headdress Ball. This wonderful volunteer group is dedicated to helping physically challenged children and adolescents lead more productive lives. The annual black tie dinner and floral headdress fashion show will be held at The Beverly Hills Hotel. Las Floristas is affiliated with Rancho Los Amigos National Rehabiliation Center and The USC Keck School of Medicine.
This year I have the privilege and honor of being one of the Las Floristas headdress judges!
Bravo to 2009 Las Floristas President, Susan Dilday, Ball Chairman, Barbara Gaylord and all the participants for a stunning "Affair to Remember".
