In Dallas, it’s never too early to start thinking about philanthropy. Just ask any one of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra League’s 21-year-old debutantes or their parents who gathered for a casino party at Eddie Deen’s ranch in anticipation of the DSO League’s 28th annual Presentation Ball.

Patrons — including Katie and Lawrence Bock and their daughter Fallon, honor guard president Tyler Armstrong, Ramona and John Locke and their daughter Perry, and Claire McCormack — partied Mardi Gras-style with Cajun cuisine, hurricanes, casino games and, of course, lots of beads.

After filling up on jambalaya and bread pudding, attendees danced the night away to music by Dennis Cavalier and the Texas Zydeco Band.

On the youthful scene were DSO League president Ginger Sager, party chair Cynthia Beaird, ball chair Dixey Arterburn, Elizabeth Dorsey, Virginia Bentley, Rachel Bruddus and Madeline Clyde.

The annual fundraising fete for these beautiful budding philanthropists has helped the DSO raise $9 million in nearly three decades — celebrating the coming of age for young Dallasites and the arts. Mark your calendar for February 8, 2014, to see 38 debs decked in white at the Presentation Ball at the Meyerson Symphony Center.
