Debutante Club Presentation Ball is Dec. 29

Sixteen young women will be celebrated on Wednesday evening at the St. Petersburg Debutante Club's annual Presentation Ball, which will take place in the Coliseum. The tradition dates from 1937, when parents of 15 young women entertained at a dance for family and friends in the old Soreno Hotel. The event occurs during the week between Christmas and New Year's, when many of the debutantes are home for the winter holidays.
