The birth of this ball began in the 1940s, when founder Khyentse Georges’ grandparents met at a Pennsylvania radio station (WCDL Carbondale).
Her grandmother was a singer and her grandfather became an announcer upon his return from World War II duty. Years later, their love story inspired Khyentse’s passionate interest in the culture and music of the 1940s that brought her grandparents together. It was when Khyentse was working at the Boulder Airport and earning her pilot’s license that she got the idea to hold an event in the large hangar to celebrate that culture.
