“A Night at the Peacock Terrace, circa 1922” The JLD is celebrating the 90th anniversary of the organization.
Saturday, February 25, 2012
The Junior League of Dallas Ball, will take guests back in time to the 1920s to the famous Baker Hotel. Demolished in 1980, the Baker Hotel was located in downtown Dallas where the AT&T buildings stand today. High atop the Baker on the 18th floor was a fabulous ballroom modeled after an old English Inn by the renowned Dallas architects, Fooshee and Cheek.
The famous terrace has relocated to the Omni Dallas Hotel for the celebration including dinner, dancing and a silent auction.
Join the ball chair Elizabeth Gambrell and honorary chairman Dianne Cash at the twenties themed ball sponsored by Sewell Automotive Companies.
Known far and wide as the Peacock Terrace, the ballroom was wildly popular with debutantes, movie stars and swing bands in the Roaring Twenties. The elegant 50th Annual Ball will take place in a recreated 1920s Peacock Terrace and will include memories from past Junior League balls.
And that’s not all. 1922 was the height of Prohibition – so after A Night at the Peacock Terrace, head on over to the hidden speakeasy known as Club 1922 for the Ball’s Late Night Party. You will need a password to get in!
