Khyentse George,1940โ€™s Ball Creator, Producing Director, Marketing & PR Director Khyentse George is the Creator, Producing Director, and Marketing & PR Director for the 1940โ€™s Ball. The 1940โ€™s Ball is a nonprofit organization that produces two annual events, the 1940โ€™s WWII Era Ball and the 1940โ€™s White Christmas Ball.
