A debutante ball in St. Louis, MO. Debutantes are from the most prestigious families of St. Louis and are presented to society and the archbishop during their first year of college. Most girls are second, third, or fourth generation debutantes and attended private high schools in St. Louis. Throughout high school they take dancing and etiquette lessons in preparation for the ball. Proceeds from the ball benefit Cardinal Glennon.
