AL Bahr Shrine Potentates Ball

On Saturday evening January 21st, at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Fashion Valley, Al Bahr Shrine held it’s annual Potentates Ball. This event is with out a doubt the biggest event of the year…Attended by Nobles from all over the three state area including Zelza, Al Zeribah, El Bekel and Al Molika to name a few! The entertainment was provided by the Potentates Daughter and Son….Wow…His Daughter’s Soprano voice was amazing…and his Son was just as amazing with Broadway tunes …which explains why Illustrious referred to him as Mr. Broadway. It was my privilege to again photograph this event and it will by my Continuing pleasure to serve Illustrious Larry Parker as his photographer…He will be the 19th consecutive Potentate I have had the Honor to serve! Here are just a few photos to tease you with….the rest can be seen at http://www.mindseyephotographies.zenfolio.com
