Playhouse Square Partners “Jump Back Ball”

If only Daniel Craig or Sean Connery had been there, the James Bond dream would have been complete. No worries though — there were plenty of handsome men who could have taken the 007’s place. The 23rd Jump Back Ball with the theme “Shaken Not Stirred,” hosted by PlayhouseSquare Partners, was an elaborate show of glamour and the finer things in life.

Beginning with a “For Your Eyes Only” VIP party, bartenders were careful not to stir the martinis and the Bond girls, bombshells in navy blue gowns and diamonds, passed out glasses of Labatt Blue Royale, while Danté and his team served exquisite appetizers like creamy polenta and pork ribs and seafood salad in sardine tins.

Driftwood Catering provided a sumptuous buffet on the State Theatre stage for the 1,000 guests, who were wined and dined and who later participated in a raffle, silent auction, wine pull, Monte Carlo-style gaming, had their fortunes told, and their photographs taken in the photo booth. They also danced to “Your Band My Hero,” and bellied up to the martini ice bar.

This was all before the late night desserts and the band “Pop Rocks” performed.

Playhouse Square Partners, a young professionals group founded in 1991, supports PlayhouseSquare including its educational opportunities for kids and its historic theaters. The group raised about $125,000 for the organization.
