Jewel Ball: Fais Do-Do – Laissez Les Bon Temps Roulez

Fais Do-Do – Laissez Les Bon Temps Roulez was the theme for a Jewel Ball party at the Alexander Majors Barn on June 10th. Hosts for the event were Katherine Hamilton, Abby Himmelstein, Calin Lane, Mary Lauren Mason, Annalie Polen, Caroline Thrun, Lauren Tinsman, John Benson, Henry Fountain, Jack Miceli, and Tommy Moreland. Guests enjoyed dancing to the tunes of a zydeco band – and even did a little waltzing.
