SUBMITTED BY DENVER DEBUTANTE BALL
The Denver Debutante Ball invites accomplished young women from respected families with a history and commitment to Denver and its institutions. The celebration of the Denver Debutante Ball continues to honor the tradition of presenting young women at a formal Debutante Ball, but is also charged with encouraging and aiding these debutantes during the course of the coming year to become good citizens through philanthropy, volunteerism and leadership. At the core of our mission is the Mentor Program, established in 2014, which provides a network for our debutantes, on the threshold of becoming leaders in business and volunteer work, with avenues and opportunities for them to become contributing members to the cultural life of the community. To that end, each one of these young women is matched with one of over 1,000 past Denver Debutantes who share an interest in the same profession, attended the same college or university or share a passion or avocation.
Proceeds from Denver Debutante Ball are given to the Denver Botanic Gardens to support their cultural and education goals. The mission of the Denver Botanic Gardens is to connect people with plants, using its core values of transformation, relevance, diversity and sustainability.
The history of the Denver Debutante Ball is a long and honorable one, with more than 1,000 young women having been introduced to the Denver community since 1956, under the awe-inspiring crystal chandelier, along with post debutantes.
In 2015, the Denver Debutante Ball celebrated the splendor of the 60th anniversary.
The 62nd Denver Debutante Ball will be held at the Brown Palace Hotel and Spa on Friday, Dec. 22. The presentation will begin at 7 p.m.
There will be 27 Debutantes making their debut as well as 16 post debutantes.
