By Jake Gaines Photography by Greg Harrison
THE SCENE: The San Antonio Country Club was the venue for the 2018 Assembly Ball, where the honorees presented were Callan MacKenzie Harrison, daughter of Kimberly and Barry Harrison; Clara Patricia Kelleher, daughter of Lisa and John Michael Kelleher; and Merrilee Negley Agather, daughter of Ruth and John M. Agather.
THE VIBE: Members meet once a year to celebrate with a beautiful ball which honors the daughters and granddaughters of their members. This year the gorgeous floral décor was created and designed by Danny Cuellar of Trinity Flowers. There was an elegance of color added to the room by the collection of Stargazer Lilies, green Hydrangeas, as well as Sweet Unique, Pink Floyd and Esperanza roses.
After dinner catered by the Club, the honorees and guests danced to the music of the Oh So Good Band. Joining in the festivities were new members of the Assembly Ball such as Katherine Buzzini, Erin Harrison and Sarah Rigney Sharpe.
THE CAUSE: Greeting guests as they entered were this year’s officers and leaders: Chairman Lissa Allen, Vice Chairman Josie Dorris, Ball Chairman Lisa Ray, Treasurer Nena Scott, and Secretary Amy Case. Founded in 1925 by forty San Antonio women, the historic Assembly Ball is an always-anticipated event by its current members.
