WONDERBALL 17

WONDER-FILLED

The thing about the annual Wonderball, planned with so much passion and savoir-faire by a young and crazily creative pack of professionals who are as passionate about the community at large – including beneficiary the St. Mary’s Hospital Center – as they are about making their marks on the planet, is … DRUM ROLL PLEEZ … it’s effectively a beautiful byproduct of all that passion and positive energy. This year’s edition, #4, embracing a cool SIDE A / SIDE B concept, masterminded by Total Events & Entertainment, was no exception, generating record-breaking funds for the Center, and much hype&hawt for the guests til the wee hours …

See fo’ yo-selves! Bravo Wonderpeople!
