2013 Pineapple Ball Sells Out: Part II

This second set of pictures from the 11th annual Pineapple Ball was taken at the Grand Ballroom of the Garden City Hotel on Friday, April 19.

Entertained by the swinging tunes of the renowned Alex Donner Orchestra, the nearly 400 attendees came out to honor some of the village’s more community-minded citizens.

Randi, D.D.S., founder & chair of the Jay Gallagher Memorial Lacrosse Tournament, was honored as the Citizen of the Year; Diane Chapman received the Community Achievement Award; and Dale Brokaw, Jan McDonough and Lois Tighe, partners of the Pear Tree Shoppe, were named Businesspersons of the Year. Additionally, Edward W. Blatz, Jr. was recognized as the winner of the Althea Robinson Excellence in Business Education Scholarship awarded by the Chamber of Commerce Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the chamber.
