2023 Cotillion & Debutante Ball
The Southern Crescent Pearls Foundation, Inc. is excited to announce our 2023 Revealing the Excellence Within Cotillion and Debutante Ball. Historically, a debutante was a young lady that had reached the age of maturity and was ready to make a “debut” to society. We have embraced this concept as an opportunity to mentor young ladies attending high school and preparing for post-secondary education. Our Debutante Program is designed to broaden perspectives educationally, socially and culturally through a series of program activities that include personal development and college preparatory workshops, community service projects/opportunities, etiquette training and more! The season culminates in the formal presentation of the debutantes during the much-anticipated debutante ball.
In addition to the activities and the formal ball, our program also provides the opportunity for each debutante to earn scholarships for use in their post-secondary educational endeavors. Prospective debutantes are rising juniors and seniors. Demi-debutantes are rising freshmen and sophomores. Our 2023 season officially begins in July 2023 and ends November 2023.
The 2023 Revealing the Excellence Within Cotillion and Debutante Ball Application opens May 20, 2023. Those interested in applying should begin completing the forms on the site and acquiring the recommendation forms to submit with the online application.
