Tuxedos and cocktail dresses were the attire for the Dallas Symphony Orchestra League’s debutantes Casino Party held in Arlington Hall at Lee Park on July 8. The debs, honor guard, and their families had a delicious buffet dinner, casino games, and dancing with live music by The Ice House Band.
The event was chaired by Eleanor McClendon Bond. Presentation Ball Chair is Lori Routh and DSOL President is Mari Epperson.
The Dallas Symphony Orchestra League introduced the 2017-2018 Debutantes during Announcement Weekend festivities June 2-4. The weekend marked the official start of a season of events culminating with the 32nd Presentation Ball, which will be held February 17, 2018.
The Presentation Ball, which was first held in 1987, is the largest fundraiser for the DSOL. Over $11 million has been raised for the Dallas Symphony Orchestra through the annual event, which was created with the vision of long-time League member Tincy Miller, who chaired the first ball.
