The Holly Ball Committee has announced the names of the 22 young ladies who will be presented at the 118th Holly Ball to be held at Indian Creek Yacht and Country Club in Kilmarnock on Saturday, December 28, beginning at 7 p.m.
The Holly Ball, the fund-raising charitable arm supporting The Tidewater Foundation, was pleased to make a variety of contributions in 2013 and to many worthy entities in and around the Northern Neck and Tidewater areas.
“The Holly Ball Committee delights in observing these young ladies embrace a time-honored tradition and mission of preserving a philanthropic legacy of giving back,” said Amy Humphreys of the Holly Ball Committee. “The events hosted by the debutantes during the festive holiday season unite these young women and foster a spirit of altruistic advocacy. They also inspire the formation of new and genuine lifelong friendships among likeminded women who wholeheartedly endorse returning gifts bestowed upon them to charitable organizations.”
Miss Elizabeth Lee Rogers of Reedville will reign as Queen of the Holly Realm. Miss Rogers, a student at Longwood College, is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Walter Neale Rogers.
