The eighth annual Ballantyne Ball, presented by Brighthouse Financial, was held Feb. 11 at The Ballantyne, A Luxury Collection Hotel, Charlotte. Ballantyne Magazine was the media partner.

The community celebration and masquerade ball included a cocktail hour, silent and live auctions, sit-down dinner and dancing. Kaitlyn Vincie, Fox Sports broadcaster, was the evening’s emcee.

Proceeds from the event benefit local organizations. This year’s recipient was SherryStrong,  which helps women know their bodies, recognize symptoms of ovarian cancer and learn how integrative and holistic practices may complement conventional medicine.
