Actress Lucille Ball and two unidentified ladies. Lucy, Desi Arnaz, Vivian Vance and William Frawley were in town for the annual Crippled Children's Hospital benefit ball, held on November 30, 1956 at the Roosevelt Hotel's International Room. Earlier in the day they made a public appearance at NORD's Lyons Center where they entertained
informally for 1/2 hour (click here for a Roy Trahan photograph taken at the event). Before that they were given keys to the city at
the City Council meeting and had lunch on the yacht Good Neighbor.
