Carousel of Hope Ball
Star-studded Carousel of Hope Ball honors Hollywood Icons Sidney Poitier, Jane Fonda, Sherry Lansing and David Foster
Unless they’re going to a major gala or awards show such as the Oscars or Emmys, Angelenos, in general, tend to dress down most days more often than not.
But they certainly dressed up for the 30th Carousel of Hope Ball, the Oct. 8 benefit for the Children’s Diabetes Foundation and the Barbara Davis Center for Childhood Diabetes — where there were plenty of long gowns, jewels, suits, tuxedos and Hollywood royalty.
