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.
