The History of the Turquoise Ball
The Turquoise Ball started out fifty-one years ago with a mission to become “The Outstanding Social Event of the Northern Arizona Winter Social Season” We have far exceeded this goal, growing this event from a dance held at the Flagstaff National Guard Armory to a spectacular formal evening with cocktails, dinner and dancing for over 500 attendees.
The original 1961 Ball raised funds to help complete the $400,000 expansion that Flagstaff Community Hospital (now FMC) was undergoing. Over the years, monies raised annually have gone to help different areas of the hospital that were identified to be in need. In 2008, the Development Department at Flagstaff Medical Center started a “Turquoise Ball Endowment Fund”. This was to insure that all dollars raised are held in perpetuity, making it possible to provide financial support over the long term.
This event has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars and continues to grow. We enjoy enormous community support, with many of Flagstaff’s prominent businessmen and physicians attending each year. This year’s Ball takes place on the first Saturday of December and is the standard for “kicking off” the holiday season. This well attended event takes place at Flagstaff’s High Country Conference Center.
The evening begins with a champagne reception with professional photographs being offered for each couple while appetizers are passed. The sit down meal follows with words from our President and honored guests. A “Live Auction” ensues and the rest of the evening is spent dancing to the live band.
