The National Charity League, Los Angeles Founder Chapter, held its 66th annual Coronet Debutante Ball on Friday, Nov. 28 where five Palisadian young women made their debut at the traditional black-tie ball in the International Ballroom of the Beverly Hilton hotel.
Eleven high school seniors were presented on the arms of their fathers, wearing their customary debutante 14K gold lavaliers for the first time, including Palisadians Amy Lynn Bailey, Kayla Anne Temple, Catherine Ann Bigelow, Nile Ruth Pierre and Whitney Kay Yost.
Two of the young ladies made their debut as legacies.
Catherine Ann Bigelow’s mother was presented in 1976 and served as a former Coronet Debutante Ball President.
Her grandmother, Juanita Kamm, is a 70-year resident of the Palisades and a former National Charity League President.
Amy Lynn Bailey also debuted as a legacy, following in the footsteps of her grandmother, mother and two sisters.
The young ladies were invited to debut based on community service criteria.
The girls have volunteered in a variety of places including The Timeless Treasure Thrift Shop, St. Anne’s and the Ocean Park Community Center in Santa Monica.
“We were pleased to have such an enthusiastic group of girls debut this year,” said Candy Beaver, Coronet Debutante Ball Director.
“It is wonderful to know that these young ladies see the need to give back to a variety of philanthropic causes and will continue to carry this mindset as they head off in the world,” added Mary Montalbo, Coronet Ball Board President.
Proceeds from the ball go to National Charity, Inc. LA Chapter Founder for their various philanthropies.
The first Coronet Ball was held in 1949 and since then, over 1,500 women have been presented over the past 66 years.
