The Angel Ball is Tucson's most prominent single charity event (so we're told), the ultimate "see or be seen" scene. Even at $300 a ticket, this gala show sells out quickly. So why would folks like us want to hang with a fancy-pants crowd like this? There are more than 15 million reasons. That's how much Angel Charity has raised for local children over the past 20 years. Recipients range from Reid Park for playground equipment and the Tucson Symphony Orchestra's music education program to nearly a half-million dollars for La Paloma Family Services. The next Angel Ball is scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 13; cocktails and casino games begin at 5:30 p.m., with dinner and dancing at 8:30. Get tickets now, or you'll be on the outside looking in.
