Event: The Glass Slipper Ball was held Sunday, December 11, at the Ordway Center for the Performing Arts in downtown St. Paul.
Cause: Organized by the Ordway Circle of Stars, all money raised at the ball goes toward the Ordway’s educational programs, which allow students to attend performances and community-engagement events during the year.
Larger Than Life: This year’s featured auction item was Cinderella’s Castle, a 16-by-11-foot playhouse. Instead of being one lucky kid’s prize, an association of individuals and organizations compiled $34,000 to win and give the castle to the Minneapolis Ronald McDonald house.
Who’s Who: Among the 430 attendees were KSTP anchor Vineeta Sawkar and the 2011 Miss Minnesota, Brittany Thelemann.
