IONA’s 2012 Gala, The Night Circus was certainly a night to remember! Overseen by the haute couture RingMistress played by IONA veteran Summer Partlon, guests were enchanted at every twist and turn of the evening’s festivities. Sheraton Chef Colin’s yummy circus-themed treats abounded and luscious potions from JMD Wineries lured donors into a world of dreamy brilliance.
IONA ramped up the entertainment for the evening with a plethora of aerialists, acrobats, and fire dancers, weaving their magic aside IONA’s eye catching minglers. From the very trendy animal cart to the giddy clowns, a delightful time was had by all! And yes, Snowball was found, munching on carrots and hopping to the beat of DJ Bart’s cirque-tacular mix!
Thanks to everyone that joined in the fun! IONA’s gala and auction raised $46,000 to support the Company's operations. Enormous appreciation goes to all the generous auction donors and shoppers, event sponsors, the HPU cheer boys and dance team, and of course our fabulous partner the Sheraton Waikiki!
