The Junior League of Galveston County celebrated its 68th annual Holiday Charity Ball, themed “Rio Carnaval,” honoring Doryn Danner Glenn at the San Luis Resort and Convention Center.

As they ascended the escalators to the Grand Ballroom, guests including Nick and Kari Long were transported to an evening in Brazil by the sounds of samba drums and dancers from LD Dance Studio. Once immersed in the festivities, partygoers including Rachel Lambert, Liz Torres and Yvette Schulz delighted in face painting and a live parrot at the photo booth from Proof it Happened.
