29th Annual Cotillion: "Peerless Pearls Soaring in Scholarship & Service"

On Saturday, January 6, 2024, 7 Peerless Pearl Debutantes were presented and welcomed to society at The Conference Center at Barefoot Resort. This sold out event showcased the poise, elegance and hard work of the participants and their families.

Congratulations to all of our 2023 Peerless Pearls & Cultivating Pearls on a job well done. They all were beautiful, elegant, graceful and poised...just like a polished pearl. 

The 2023 Cotillion Committee would like to thank all of you for your hard work over the past 6 months. Thank you to our participants for attending the various workshops, rehearsals and meeting all required/requested deadlines.

From the Orientation.... the community service project backpack project at Sandridge Park... learning about different career paths from our panelists during the Career Workshop... understanding the importance of dining and professional etiquette along with developing and maintaining good grooming habits...

...understanding the value of loving the skin you are in...

....and celebrating fascinating women at the Mother/Daughter Tea.

Thank you to the parents/guardians, family members, friends and your village for sharing these incredible young ladies with us during the course of this program. We know that their success is only matched by your determination to see them succeed in life.

We look forward to seeing what these young ladies will accomplish over the next few years.

A special thank you to:
