What: 30th annual Dallas Symphony Orchestra League (DSOL) Presentation Ball

Where: Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center

The 411: Ball chair Nancy Labadie welcomed 42 stunning debutantes, dressed in white and accompanied by handsome honor guards, to the highly anticipated Presentation Ball. This event is rich in tradition — 30 years — and many of the families have been participating for generations.

After months of practice, each young lady showed off her Texas dip as part of the ceremony. First held in 1987, the Presentation Ball is the largest fundraiser for the DSOL, raising more than $10 million for the Dallas Symphony Orchestra.
