The Downriver Filipino American Association (DFAA) will hold its 12th Debutante Ball and induction of officers on July 27, 2013 at the Fairlane Club at 5000 Fairlane Woods Drive, Dearborn, it was announced.
Outgoing DFAA President Shirley Mataverde said DFAA is looking for young ladies who want to participate in the debutante ball.
The debutante-participants should be 16-21 years old. Prospective participants are asked to call Shirley Mataverde at telephone 734-552-2766 or incoming DFAA President Florence Flores at 313-918-9298.
Mataverde said that the earlier the participants register for the ball the better as ample time is needed to teach them to dance the cotillion.
The fee for each participant is $250.
Ticket prices are: $45 (prepaid), adult; $50 (paid at the door), adult; and $17, children 12 to five years old.
The Amihan Band, composed of Filipino American performers, will provide the music.
During the same affair, the new DFAA officers led by incoming President Florence Flores will take their oath of office.
