With confirmed cases of the coronavirus in the state, party organizers continue to cancel social events as a public safety measure.

Three parties High Profile planned to cover the week of March 8-15 -- the Evolve Gala for Centers for Youth and Families, Arkansas a la Carte for Arkansas Children's Hospital and Easterseals Arkansas Fashion Event -- were postponed.

Today we give you a look-back at what those parties looked like in 2019 -- with the hope that the 2020 events will go on later this year.

"Oh, the Places You'll Go" was the Dr. Seuss-inspired theme of Evolve Gala 2019. Guests were greeted by volunteers in the atrium wearing tall Cat in the Hat-style hats.

This year's Fashion Event is rescheduled for June 11.

Balloons in an array of colors and sizes ran the length of Arkansas Children's Hospital's Children's Hall ceiling providing a cheerful bit of color for the 2019 Arkansas a la Carte.

The hospital has not yet announced a new date for the event.
