Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Gamma Mu Omega Chapter, will present 13 young women to society at its biennial Debutante Cotillion and Scholarship Gala on June 23 at The Shores Resort and Spa.
The goal of Gamma Mu Omega’s debutante program is to provide activities that will enhance the development of outstanding young women in the Greater Daytona Beach Area. Girls selected to participate have taken part in community service projects and attended workshops covering a variety of topics including social etiquette, health and personal finance.
Thirteen debutantes and seven “bud debs” – girls 5 to 7 years of age – will participate in the program. The 13 debutantes are seniors and recent graduates of Volusia and Flagler high schools.
Tickets for the Debutante Cotillion and Scholarship Gala are sold out. The gala, which begins at 6:30 p.m., will include a presentation dance by the debutantes, dinner and music.
