Transtech is proud to show continuous support to San Bernardino’s Annual Headdress Ball! The presentation of the headdresses is a 57 year-old tradition that has grown more elaborate every year. Community patrons agree to sponsor these magnificent designer creations with all of the proceeds going to charity. The headdresses can weigh 10-50 lbs. and can stand at a height of 5’-15’ before being placed on a models head. The headdresses are designed by local florists and artisans and they must be carefully balanced so they are wearable. The models who wear the headdresses are generally chosen based on their contributions to the San Bernardino chapter of Assistance League® and their community service. The members with the strongest service records are honored by the membership by being given the opportunity to model a headdress.
