Twenty-six young women who have completed six years of volunteer work and training were honored at the senior presentation of the National Charity League, Stanford Hills chapter, on March 6 at the Crowne Plaza Cabana Hotel in Palo Alto.

The young women made their debut at "Presents" wearing white formal gowns.

The National Charity League includes mothers and their daughters in grades six to 12. The purpose of the organization is to foster a close mother/daughter relationship and encourage volunteer work in the community.

The nine local girls honored were Margaret Beim, Melissa Benevento, Jessica Blocker, Sophie Emmerson, Katherine Howard, Kristen Howard, Jennifer Krantz, Ann Madding and Christina Ring.

The National Charity League is a nonprofit national organization with 155 chapters in 16 states. The Stanford Hills chapter was started in 1987.
