Peninsula Ball committee welcomes debsFifteen debutantes were introduced at the Peninsula Ball tea on March 20 at the home of Jacque Jarve in Atherton. The young women invited their mothers and other important women in their lives to the tea.
The debs will bow June 19 at the Peninsula Ball, which benefits the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Peninsula. Proceeds from the ball will provide funding for the Boys & Girls Clubs' College Bound program.
Co-chairs for the Peninsula Ball, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary, are Valerie Soltau and Jayne Mordell. Bridget Madigan is honorary chair.
This year's debutantes are Gabriela Currier, Meaghan Gerhart, Ryanne Haught, Tori-Marie Moore, Hathaway Moore, Elsie Kruberg, Anne Robson, Christina Ring, Samantha Hiller, Ann Madding, Ashley Roberts, Megan Brown and Katherine Kerwin.
Over the past 50 years, the Peninsula Ball has raised more than $5 million to assist children and families in the community.
