The Red Dress Ball

I love the color red.   It’s lively, fun and fills me with energy.  Red is known to be a stimulating color and can be associated with everything from anger to love. In the 1938 film, “Jezebel”, Bette Davis shocked fellow debutante’s and their dates by appearing at the year’s most important ball in a bright red satin gown.  Shocking since unmarried women were to wear white and nothing else.  The dance floor slowly cleared out as the group ostracized Bette and her beau, played by Henry Fonda.  I would have been like Bette, always marching to the beat of my own drummer.


In this case  we’re talking about the color red because February is Heart Health Month.  The Brunswick Junior Woman’s Club is getting ready to host the Red Dress Ball, their annual fundraiser for the Glynn Heart Association.  Not only do the proceeds from the ball go to help patients who are in rehabilitation having suffered a heart attack,  it also raises funds for a Nursing Scholarship at the College of Coastal Georgia.  Miss Davis would have been proud to be the belle of this ball, all decked out in red and dancing to the beat.

This is a lively night with a “Wow” factor built right in.   Studio Pixel Pop will offer a photo booth with all the props for guests to strike a pose and have some fun.  Myrick Stubbs heads up the planning committee this year and her team of dedicated women have put their heart and soul into every detail.  There will be plenty of hors d’ouevres, a cash bar, dance music provided by “Spike At The Beach”, and a silent auction.  To participate in a 50/50 raffle, tickets can be purchased for $1.00, and your presence is not required in order to win.   Last but not least, A Diamond Raffle is being presented by Chadwick’s Jeweler’s in which one lucky guest will win a 1/2 carat diamond.  Just purchase a glass of champagne for$25.00 to be entered.  Red dress is optional, but preferred, as well as black tie……you’ll want to put it on to support this cause!

The event is being held at the King And Prince Beach and Golf Resort this coming Saturday night, the 23rd of February.  Tickets can be purchased online at for the event as well as the 50/50 raffle.  Ticket sales will continue online until noon on the 23rd and can also be purchased at the door.


This important event takes the place of the Oleander Ball which drew a supportive crowd for 60 years in order to raise money for school lunch programs.  As the state began to publicly fund school lunches the ball began to fade away.  The current Brunswick Junior Woman’s Club is one of the largest in the state.  It is a club of service and holds membership in the General Federation of Women’s Clubs, the largest volunteer organization of women in the world.


Buy your tickets!  Get out that red dress, baby, and have a ball!  It’s all for the good and a great evening will be had by all!

    They might have a modest exhibit stand with a handful
    of earrings or instant on it, but the range is
    restricted as they are not able to preserve also much. Exactly the
    same thing happens when it comes to silver jewels additionally.
    Available in a wide array of fabrics and styles, belts offer endless
    opportunities to express your fashion style. The fashion runway is packed with black and white outfits.
