Paint the town on Saturday, April 15 at the Susi Q’s Annual Legacy Ball

April can be a taxing time, that’s true. But on the 15th of the month this year, it’ll be time to let loose and paint the town at the Susi Q’s Annual Legacy Ball. 

Zoomers and boomers, and even some seniors, will celebrate an organization that’s making Laguna livable for every generation – not to mention a lot more fun than retirement communities.

The Susi Q’s Annual Legacy Ball takes place on April 15 at the Laguna Cliffs Marriott Resort, 25135 Park Lantern, Dana Point, from 5-9 p.m. The program includes cocktails, dancing, opportunity drawings, dinner, dessert and a live auction.

“Our annual Legacy Ball is a glorious evening of good company, generosity and gratitude,” said Nadia Babayi, executive director of Laguna Beach Seniors, which operates the Susi Q. “Our guests help us raise one-quarter of our yearly budget and we love honoring those who have given exceptional and enduring service to the community.”
