The Speaker’s Ball “After Party” was March 12 at the Skirvin Hilton Hotel. House Speaker Chris Benge and his wife, Allison, were hosts and invited guests for cocktails, dessert and dancing to the music of “Souled Out.”
They called it the “Party After the Party That Never Happened.” The original Speaker’s Ball had been planned for January in the Centennial Building of the Oklahoma State Fairgrounds, but was snowed out.
There was a live auction to benefit the Regional Food Bank and the Community Food Bank of Oklahoma.
