Gin Blossoms to Headline the Diamond Angel Fairytale Ball to Benefit Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital (11/8/14)
The Diamond Angels of Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital Foundation is a volunteer membership support group formed by the Foundation’s Board of Directors in 2004. The Diamond Angels serve as advocates for Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital to support its mission – to provide safe, quality, cost-effective, patient and family-centered care regardless of one’s ability to pay, with the goal of improving the health of the community it serves.
The Diamond Angels premiere event is the always memorable Fairy Tale Ball. Since the Inaugural Ball in the Fall of 2004, the Diamond Angels have hosted seven events that have raised over $1 million dollars for the Pediatric Oncology Unit and $1 million dollars towards the new Wasie Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, and over another $1 million dollars for various other programs including building the free standing hospital that opened in 2011.
Last year, Joan Jett was the headliner talent for the Fairy Tale Ball and it was one of the most exciting evenings since the inception of the Ball. What made it even more spectacular was the fact that it was all for a very good cause. Here is a link to some images from last year’s event and below is a slideshow of the event.
In 1992, Gin Blossoms rose to fame with their very successful album, New Miserable… Experience which kept the band on the charts for almost 3 years with singles like ‘Hey Jealousy’, ‘Allison Road’, ‘Until I Fall Away’, ‘Mrs. Rita’, ‘Til I Hear It From You’, ‘Lost Horizons’ and ‘Found Out About You’. The album took the airwaves by storm and held MTV hostage with multi cross-over hits in 4 different radio formats. With their next release in 1996, Congratulations I’m Sorry, the band went full mainstream. Having created their own unique blend of Pop & Rock, now referred to as Jangle-Pop, Gin Blossoms became a musical force that helped define the sound of 90’s radio.
Please join us as we welcome Gin Blossoms to the Fairy Tale Ball at the Diplomat Resort & Spa on November 8th 2014 for what will be a totally rockin’ evening, as we celebrate the 11th year of this wonderful event benefiting Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital. See you there!!
