Kansas City Ballet – Sugar Plum Fairy Children’s Ball

December 7th was the date for the Sugar Plum Fairy Children’s Ball. Co-chairmen Lisa Sirridge and Regina Klepikow hosted the 25th annual event, which was held at the Muehlebach Tower of the Kansas City Marriott Downtown. Guests enjoyed a performance by the Kansas City Youth Ballet, an elegant three-course luncheon, face painting, and photos with the Sugar Plum Fairy. Emcee Christa Dubill honored DeVette Ashley for her vision of the event 25 years ago. After the feast, guests were whisked away to a performance of The Nutcracker, a presentation of the Kansas City Ballet.
