Statement of Purpose
The Debutante Organization, an affiliate of the Sarasota Orchestra, fosters the cultural and social commitment of a select number of young women of Sarasota and Manatee Counties, their families and their extended families. All monies raised benefit the Youth Programs of the Sarasota Orchestra.
The further purpose of the Debutante Program is to encourage each young woman to discover her own cultural and social identity and to develop a sense of responsibility for the growth of artistic and cultural awareness in this and other communities in which she may reside. The Program is charitable, social and enriching. It offers connections and networking opportunities and an affiliation for life.
The Debutante selection process will not deny any young woman the opportunity to participate based on race, religion, cultural or economic background.
