REMEMBERING SO C I E T Y | FA SHI O N | HO ME | D I NING | ART VOLUME 32, NO. 5

Remembering ... Nick Balich By Bill Dougherty

A gentleman and a scholar, a family man and a truly humble guy. Those are the words you think of when describing Nick Balich. He passed away this fall, leaving an incredible legacy and lasting memories for the state of Arizona and the social community. In 1992 I was first introduced to Nick and his lovely wife Diana at a Phoenix Suns game by Christi Warner Beyer. At the time, the Suns were in the playoffs and the energy in the newly built America West Arena was high. Not a sports fan, I spent the game picking lent off my sweater while the rest of the stadium worked its self into a frenzy. We all stopped at El Chorro Lodge for cocktails after the game. Nick excused himself and picked up the tab. He would do this time and time again for the next several decades. Diana and Nick were high flyers on the social scene and deeply loved by the community they helped to build. Nick’s long career at Phelps Dodge was more than impressive. The Bisbee native and University of Arizona football star, who spent 37 years with the corporation, became involved in numerous charitable organizations. His community involvement in sports, tax research, government affairs and Phoenix social world would thrust Nick to the pinnacle of giving back to our Valley. He will always be noted for taking the Fiesta Bowl to its highest level. His commitment to ATRA, Kids Voting, Goldwater Institute, Boys and Girls Clubs, Elks, Masonic National Conference of Christians and Jews and on and on, were just a few of the organizations to receive his Midas touch. What a guy! Nick Balich will always be remembered as a soft spoken gentle giant. He was a man whose smile could illuminate the darkest of ball rooms. He had the ability to make everyone he met feel as if they were his best friend. One of the last true empire builders of the 20th century, he did business on a hand shake rather then a legal contract. Nick always put his large family first and beamed when they all followed suit in the philanthropic world. He changed our community and its people from all walks of life for the better. He seldom if ever took credit for his vast accomplishments. People like Nick Balich only come around once in a life time. Heaven just inherited perhaps its most gracious angel ever.

La Dolce Vita Can you believe the holidays are already upon us? Where did the fall go? I’ll tell you where it went, straight to the non-stop luncheons that now canvas The Valley. We had reporters at so many that we decided to dedicate our January issue to them. It would be wrong to throw them into a Best of Everything page in the back of the magazine. Since there’s so little going on in December, we felt it was apropos. People are talking about the triumphant success of the Phoenix Theatre gala. Just the other morning I had breakfast with Marylou Stephens who seems to be the director of just about everything at the theatre. We met at Vincent’s along with one of my star reporters Carol Bennett to discuss, not only the success of the Applause Gala, chaired by Lynn Love, Char Hubble and Jennifer Carmer (watch her fly), but also our great partnership with the Phoenix Theatre. Michael Barnard’s ears must have been burning! You might remember that it was just a short few years ago that he, along with Melanie Dillman and a lot of past Heart Ball chairs, put Char Hubble with Lynne Love and the theatre on the high Jennifer Carmer society map. Starting in

By Bill Dougherty

January, Trends will be showcasing its fine programs and plays. It’s the first time in the 32-year history of our publication that we have embarked on such a great journey. We hope you enjoy the new feature in 2015. You’ve known for years that Linda Pope is a true genius. But what you probably didn’t know is that for the last several years she’s been quietly working on her own television show, which just made its debut on the TLC network. “Ballroom Blitz” follows the lives of ladies and gentlemen who compete in ballroom dance throughout the country and perhaps even the world. We wanted to hold a launch party at our Paradise Valley home, which we have dubbed Green Acres. The home is a 1961 Palm Springs modern and the rather lengthy work in progress included having dozens of trees and shrubs removed recently. Sadly, we can no longer refer to it as Grey Gardens. Anyway the show aired the day before Thanksgiving, so Linda asked us to shelve the party for perhaps another time. Such a shame as our guests could have had so much fun Linda Pope

sively with two reporters on the Watergate scandal, ending the Nixon administration. Mikki Eveloff has great style, wit and intelligence; she will certainly follow the above-mentioned ladies. Just watch her soar!

The other afternoon we met with Mikki Eveloff of The Clotherie at Vincent’s Bistro, the hottest place to see and be seen in the community for lunch. Darling Mikki, like the rest of the Valley, is devastated over the loss of her spouse Greg who died suddenly over the summer. We spoke of what a fine man Greg was and his gentle and quiet philanthropy and style. Under his leadership The Clotherie shot to international recognition and great fame. We also spoke of the future of the gallant men’s store. Our sales manager Patrice Metzler and I were both clothing buyers in another life and we told Mikki that we were happy to help, should she need anything. Mikki assured us that it was business as usual and that she would be taking over the operations. After our lunch concluded, I began to think of widows who had gone on to take their late husband’s companies to the pinnacle of success. Olive Beech quietly assumed the role of CEO of Beechcraft and took the light plane manufacturer to all-time highs. She would become the most awarded woman in aviation in the 20th century. Joan Crawford became an international ambassador for Pepsi Cola following her husband’s untimely death. She would spend the next 22 years opening Pepsi plants around the world and helped the soft drink company achieve record profits. Kathrine Graham, noted more for being an international socialite in the 1950s and early ‘60s, became the publisher of the Washington Post, when her much-troubled husband took his life in the fall of 1963. Ms. Graham would become the first women to head a Fortune 500 company and collaborated exten-

When was the last time you were served caviar at a charity ball? Probably in the roaring ‘80s? Well just the other night at the Biltmore Resort, the 2014 Phoenix Heart Ball Chair Brenda Howard did just that and a lot more too. I’ve attended the ball since the 1980s. It’s had highs and lows, like any other ball in town, but the other night was magical! I have to be careful since my own wife presided over the 50th anniversary of the ball five years ago, so I’ll just end by saying it was an absolutely extraordinary evening and that it was simply flawless. From all of us at Trends, Happy Holidays. We’ll see you next year! In Cocktail Polo News You Should Know: That karma’s a bitch and so is a woman who now has little good karma because she was so mean to so many. That the social community has grown tired of men and women who can’t seem to stay away from their phones at charitable events. That a couple you all know and adore seem to be party-crashing cocktail receptions at opulent affairs, fleeing minutes before dinner is served since they didn’t pay for seats. That an inconvenient woman needs to In Cocktail Polo News you should know: go back to the west side and stop stalking former boyfriends. That a breathtakingly beautiful socialite, who once spread sunshine and loveliness, seems to have soured, criticizing all but her closest friends. That a philanthropist you all know will quietly gift the less fortunate this holiday season and refuse to take any credit. That two beautiful socialites are coming unglued as their ex-husbands are being seen around town with very attractive women. Now you’re all caught up until next year.

INTERVIEW

10 Questions for … Chiara Boni of La Petite Robe

For more than 2 decades Florentine designer Chiara Boni has outfitted the world in her amazing fashions. In all natural fabric that stretches, they give the lovely ladies of Milan designs for the rich and famous as well as the everyday woman. She dropped by Neiman Marcus, Scottsdale and we had the chance to speak with her. What happens to your line when you die? I hope it continues. Look what Karl Lagerfeld did for Chanel. He resurrected a line that had almost vanished. I know Coco Chanel is looking down on him and

although they had different styles, she has to be happy. I hope my line goes on for a long time.

magnificent. And of course Lucio Fontana. His paintings and sculptures still mesmerize me and also my fashions.

Who are your favorite designers? Emilio Pucci was a great inspiration to me. He used fabrics in his ski line in the early 1960s that stretched with the body. Although his fabrics are no longer available today, I hope my own fabrics are much like his were then.

On what occasion do you fib or exaggerate? I always try to be honest. If you lie, it always catches up with you in the end. What’s the hardest part of your job? I would not say my job is hard. It’s very challenging at times. I wake up happy every day, because I know there is someone out there I can make beautiful.

Where would you like to live? Florence! Although I enjoy living in Milan, there is nothing like the beauty, culture and art of my native city.

What are your most cherished possessions? My two dogs, my son and my collection of handmade furniture.

Who are your everyday heroes? Doctors and anyone else who has a soul. Someone that can cure the Ebola virus.

Ruby is quite the gem! Her stunning tortie point markings and captivating blue eyes make her one exotic looking kitty. Very curious, Ruby likes to hide in fun places and leaps out to chase her toys! She appears reserved at first, then she steps into the light to have you entertain her. Her favorite thing to do is pop up as you’re reading or writing. She tries to help you turn the page or assist in your penmanship. She uses the spiral binding of a notebook or binder to scratch her chin. Ruby is available at the Arizona Humane Society’s Campus for Compassion located at 1521 West Dobbins Road in Phoenix.

Buster Brown

Buster Brown is an 8-week-old Mastiff and Boxer mix who seems to be aware of his high rating on the adorable scale with his wrinkled brow and droopy puppy eyes. This pup is big on play and with oversized paws and clumsy puppy antics; Buster performs somersaults as he attempts to carry a stuffed toy that’s twice his size while romping across the yard. Thanks to a dedicated foster family, Buster is partially housetrained and has mastered the sit command but he will need a family with a large house, a spacious yard, a full-sized car and a heart big enough for a dog that will one day grow to be colossal sized. Buster Brown is available at the Arizona Humane Society’s Campus for Compassion located at 1521 West Dobbins Road in Phoenix. To visit additional animals in need of a home, visit www.azhumane.org.
