Bachelor's Club Christmas Ball debutantes selected
Twenty-eight young women were invited on Thanksgiving Day to be debutantes for the annual Bachelor's Club Christmas Ball set for Dec. 22. Bachelor's Club members, dressed in formal attire, asked the debutantes personally with an invitation and a rose. They also toasted them with a glass of Champagne.
The black-tie Bachelor's Club Christmas Ball is at the Oklahoma City Golf & Country Club and begins at 8 p.m., with the debutante presentation beginning at 9 p.m. Debutantes will be escorted by Bachelor's Club members. After the presentation, guests will dance to the music of Souled Out and there will be a late breakfast.
Sunbeam Family Services will be the recipient of the proceeds of this year's ball as designated by Club President Cole Terlip. The Bachelor's Club of Oklahoma City was founded in 1938 by a group of young men to promote social and philanthropic events. The debutante presentation began in 1945.
