The 22nd Annual Sugar Plum Fairy Children’s Ball, sponsored by Merrill Lynch and hosted by chair Mrs. Shelley Zucht, on December 3rd transformed the Muehlebach Tower of the Kansas City Marriott Downtown into a magical snow forest. Guests enjoyed the Kansas City Youth Ballet performance, as well as holiday carols sung by Ginger Frost High School Honors Artists from the Lyric Opera. It was indeed all about the twinkle and sparkle of the holidays as guests were treated with incredible magicians, jugglers, beautiful face painting, photos with the Sugar Plum Fairy and shopping at the Nutcracker market. At the end of the feast, everyone was whisked away to the matinee performance of The Nutcracker presented by Kansas City Ballet and sponsored by Bank of America. It was a wonderful way to celebrate the start of the holiday season.
