2019 The Great Pineapple Ball
Just a few days left to purchase your tickets for an evening of great food, fun music and dancing the night away!
The Pineapple Ball was conceived as a way for the entire community to come together to celebrate and pay special tribute to those individuals in our community who have gone above and beyond in their efforts towards the betterment of our village. Highly regarded as Garden City's premier black-tie business and social event, the Pineapple Ball is held annually at the Garden City Hotel and is one of the Chambers largest fundraisers of the year. The evening boasts 300 + attendees each year, Journal Advertising, Silent Auction, Dinner, Dancing, and a night filled with first class elegance and fun!
The Garden City Foundation promotes and supports Garden City’s civic and charitable organizations for our neighbors in need. It also annually awards ‘The Althea Robinson Excellence in Business Education Scholarship’ to a deserving GCHS senior. This year proceeds from the Pineapple Ball will go towards funding that scholarship.
This year, the 17th Annual Pineapple Ball will be held on April 26th, 2019 from 7pm – Midnight at the Garden City Hotel. The Garden City Chamber of Commerce looks forward to honoring the following extraordinary individuals:
