Ball Celebrates Decade Of Giving

Television star Ian Somerhalder, center, enjoys the spotlight Sunday night with siblings—from left to right—Brooklyn, Jake, Kade and Kyle Andrew at the 10th annual Share Your Heart Ball to benefit Camp Rainbow Gold—a Wood River Valley camp for kids with cancer. Nine-year-old Kade, of Meridian, has been diagnosed with cancer and is a returning Camp Rainbow Gold camper. The event at Sun Valley Resort’s Limelight Room attracted 450 people in paid attendance. Somerhalder has one of the three main roles in the popular drama television series “The Vampire Diaries,” currently in its third season. His sister, valley resident Robyn Balmer, co-owns McClain’s Pizzeria in Hailey with her husband, McClain Balmer. Event organizer Kris Cronin said Somerhalder was a big attraction. “We were really honored to have him with us. The 10th anniversary proved to be an incredible cap to a decade of giving.”
