38th Annual Patrons Ball
September 20, 2014
The Buffalo Bill Center of the West’s major annual fundraising event—and premier gala of the Rocky Mountain region—the Patrons Ball, took place September 21, 2013. We were honored to host His Serene Highness Prince Albert II of Monaco, great, great grandson of the Prince of Monaco who visited this area with Buffalo Bill in 1913.
Attendees enjoyed the music of the Denny Leroux Orchestra and fine dining prepared by Chef Ryan Boehme and Bravo Catering.
