Notable Moments: Honor Ball guests were welcomed to the Grand Budapest Hotel. Upon arrival, they were greeted by valets in purple “lobby boy” attire for cocktails on the patio as the sun set in the distance. The ballroom entrance experience was a “wow” moment as the hotel imagery surrounded the stage. The band played an incredible opening set, and the candle-lit tables were filled with stunning decor in pink, dusty blue, mauve and purple. The processional included a wonderful tribute to longtime supporters Priscilla and Michael Nicholas before HonorHealth CEO Todd LaPorte and foundation president & CEO Jared Langkilde opened the dance floor as the “Lobby Boys” for the evening!
