The Carrollton Cotillion recently announced that it will formally present its 2020 debutantes at the 29th Noel Debutante Ball at Sunset Hills Country Club on Saturday, Dec. 19, 2020. The event will commence at 7:30 p.m.
This year’s young women have completed one year of college and distinguished themselves as active, involved and respected in their community.
They continue a tradition that began in 1992 when the Carrollton Cotillion presented its ﬁrst group of 12 debutantes. Since that time, the club has presented more than 300 young women and offered their families and friends the opportunity to enjoy an elegant evening of festivity where they are formally presented.
The 2020 debutantes have donated their time and energy in many different areas of service, both locally and at their respective schools. Some organizations that have benefited are CASA Atlanta, Carroll County Animal Shelter, Red Cross, Ronald McDonald House, YoungLife, Storybrook Farms, and the Alzheimer’s Association.
The goal of the Carrollton Cotillion is to present young women who represent and serve their community well. Traditionally, the debutantes host a party during the summer months for friends and family as a way to hone party-planning and hosting skills. Due to the pandemic, these young women were not able to participate in this tradition but each continued to support their communities in various ways.
The founding sponsors of the Carrollton Cotillion are Mrs. Wyche Thomas Green, Jr. and Mrs. Charles Henry Lumpkin, Jr. The sponsors present names of eligible young ladies to the Carrollton Cotillion board of directors in early February. The future debutantes are then invited to attend a mother-daughter tea in May, hosted by the current board of directors.
The young ladies who have been selected for presentation in this year’s 28th Noel Ball are:
Brianna Marie Colquitt, Jacksonville State University, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Jason Lamar Colquitt.
