The Board of Visitors Annual Charity Ball is the longest running philanthropic event in the state. Arizona was merely three years old when the first Ball was held. Guests arrived by horse and buggy and were served dinner prepared by the members. In 1938, daughters and granddaughters of members were asked to sell flowers at the Ball. In 1956, the formal presentation of Flower Girls was adopted.
The tradition continues as 45 Flower Girls will be presented at the 101st Annual Charity Ball on April 16, 2016.
Since 1908, The Board of Visitors has granted millions to serve the healthcare needs of the greater Phoenix community.
