Bidding farewell to another year, the St. Petersburg Debutante Club celebrated 17 young women at the annual Presentation Ball in the Coliseum. The black-tie event, always a festive holiday party for family and friends, offered trumpet fanfares as each deb was introduced by master of ceremonies and former Mayor Bob Ulrich. Continuing several long-standing traditions, they wore white formal dresses; descended the stairs; greeted their fathers, all of whom were in white-tie formal wear; promenaded and curtsied toward their mothers; then completed the walk with their escorts. The 2012 honorees, all presented by their fathers, are:

Jenn Collins, daughter of Gene and Barbara Collins, escorted by Eugene Collins III.

Brendan Fagan, daughter of Peter and Jocelyn Fagan, escorted by Cullen Wilkerson.
