AROUND TOWN: The 2019 Colorado Springs Debutante Ball

20.01.2020 21:29

The 2019 Colorado Springs Debutante Ball, an elegant formal evening at The Broadmoor during the holiday season, mirrored generations of tradition.

The 21 young women in the sophisticated snow-white gown and curtsy red-carpet presentation were ofttimes daughters and granddaughters of debutantes. Former debutantes, past ball chairs and previous debutante mothers served on the ball committee and as advisers.

The 53-year-history was strong, with Dr. Daniel Barret Thatcher, son of the late Hester Thatcher, one of the five founders of the Debutante Ball, serving as master of ceremonies.

The debutantes, freshmen in college who graduated from nine area high schools, had been selected for their community volunteer contributions and school achievements. And, following tradition, they were honored for the community contributions of their families as well.

Philanthropically, the Debutante Balls have raised more than $690,000 for major acquisitions at the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center at Colorado College, with those pieces in a special catalog. The amount added by the 2019 Ball will be presented to the FAC in February, said event chair Sarah O’Shea.

A poignant dedication in the cream and gold Debutante Ball program honored the late musician Jerry Brown, “in honor of his decades of playing beautiful music for the Debutante Ball.”
