This year, the Thursday Club will present 12 young women to society on Sunday evening, Dec. 27, at a black-tie gala to be held at the Omni Hotel in downtown Los Angeles. The Bal Blanc de Noel is the culminating event that celebrates their completion of a 16-month program of social and community service, as well as cultural education, personal development training and etiquette instruction.
The presenter for the evening will be La Cañada Flintridge Mayor Laura Olhasso. During the ceremony, Judith Cooper, Thursday Club president, will present the traditional camellia charm to each debutante as a gift from the club. Following the presentation, the debutantes will dance the traditional first waltz with their fathers.
