About the Baile
The Baile de las Flores is the signature fundraising gala of the Board of Visitors. It was first presented in 1920 to benefit St. Luke’s and the tubercular patients in their care. Today, the Baile benefits St. Luke’s and the Elders who make it their home.
The spectacular 100th Baile de la Flores continues the traditions of past Bailes on April 6, 2019, at the beautiful JW Marriott Starr Pass Resort & Spa. Guests will enjoy a festive celebration in the spirit of the Baile’s rich history. The evening will feature the raffle of an original painting by noted artist Barbara Gurwitz, a fabulous silent auction and a display of historic items as well as lively entertainment and much, much more. The Baile will also honor the significant service of the Board of Visitors and promote the important mission of St. Luke’s Home.
The Board of Visitors – Celebrating a Legacy of Service
The women of the Board of Visitors have served the Tucson community for an impressive century.
Through several generations, they have demonstrated leadership in voluntarism, project development, program management and fundraising to provide help and resources for those with limited means.
In the early 1900’s, their white gloved hands gave comfort and eased suffering. Today’s women no longer wear the white gloves of the past, but their hands continue to offer comfort to ease the lives of those in need.
Through commitment, dedication and hard work, they have raised millions of dollars and donated countless volunteer hours to ensure the success of the projects they support. It is a remarkable legacy to celebrate.
