The “Azúcar Ball” celebrated 25 years with a masquerade-themed throwback to the first “Azúcar Ball” in 1990. Guests were encouraged to wear masks, which were also provided at the main event.

The 2015 Gálvez Cup Recipients were Artists Hernán Caro, Luis Colmenares and Mario Villa. This year’s “Azúcar Ball” Co-Chairs were Maricarmen Huelga Aldana, Elizabeth Dunn Bordes and Francesca Velasco

The Patron Party, sponsored by Dickie Brennan & Company, featured a glamorous entrance, with silver wall drapery and chandeliers as well as musical entertainment by five members of the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra. The formality continued at the main event, with elaborate silver table centerpieces created by artists Hernán Caro and Luis Colmenares.

Twenty-three restaurants catered the main event, presented by Pan American Life, along with Celebrity Bartender Daniel Victory of Victory Bar.

Entertainment by Carl Mack Presents included a champagne lady, donning a skirt holding glasses of champagne, silver Venetian muses, silver Venetian-style stilt walkers and jugglers and a Venetian dancer in a bubble. Performers included Julio y César and AshéSon.

The silent auction, chaired by Yakelis Anzola, included more than 100 items. There was also an online auction, which included jewelry, paintings by well-known artists and vacation packages.

Proceeds are allocated to scholarships for local high school Latino students.
