Still going strong
Last year, the program celebrated its 34th anniversary of honoring outstanding young women in our community. The Program began with the first Debutante Ball in 1981, and since that time, 451 young women have successfully participated in the program. The purpose of the program is to foster social and cultural awareness in a select group of young women to benefit this or any future community in which she will reside.
Benefiting the Orchestra
ostPThe Debutante Program supports the Sarasota Orchestra, Inc., a multifaceted organization that embraces a dual commitment to both performance and education. To date, the Debutante Program has donated almost $1,000,000 to the Youth Programs of the Sarasota Orchestra.
