Debs bow at Peninsula BallFifteen young women made their debut before 250 friends and family members at the 50th Peninsula Ball, held June 19 at the Crowne Plaza Cabana Hotel in Palo Alto.
The debs wore traditional white gowns, long white gloves, and carried bouquets of white roses. The hotel ballroom was transformed into an all-white garden setting. Tables were decorated with gold cloths and white flowers in silver vases.
The debutantes are Kristina Morris, Samantha Hiller, Gabriella Currier, Ann Madding, Megan Brown and Ashley Roberts, Meaghan Gerhart, Christina Ring, Sanam Amid-Hozour, Katherine Kerwin, Elizabeth Moore, Elsie Kruberg, Anne Robson, Toni-Marie Moore and Ryanne Haught.
Valerie Soltau and Jayne Mordell were co-chairs of the anniversary event, with Bridget Madigan as honorary chair. The evening, which benefited the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Peninsula, was a time for memories for those who had made their own debuts at past Peninsula Balls. Elizabeth Ross, a founding member of the ball, was greeted with a standing ovation.
The evening was concluded with dancing to the Robert Vickers Orchestra.
