About the Ball
This year we will sail into the uncharted islands of the South Pacific. Get swept away in the
warm breeze and exotic beauty of The South Seas for an enchanted evening full of
tropical landscapes and a few playful surprises.
Mark your calendars for Saturday, August 20, 2022, for a celebration of Las Patronas’
nonprofit beneficiaries and generous supporters. “After a globally uncertain year, Las
Patronas is hard at work, helping San Diego nonprofit organizations fulfill their missions.
Our worthy beneficiaries provide valuable community services, and their critical needs right
now are greater than ever.
Las Patronas was founded in 1946 by fourteen members who contributed handmade decorations to the first Jewel Ball. Today, the fifty active members of Las Patronas proudly carry on the traditions of our founding members by building the ball design elements by hand and transporting them, piece by piece, to the La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club to create one of San Diego’s best fêtes.
