Cotillion Society of Cleveland holds 47th annual Debutante Ball

    The Cotillion Society of Cleveland presented six young women and two gentlemen at its 47th annual debutante ball held at The Country Club in Pepper Pike.
    Ball co-chairmen were Constance Croasdaile and Stephanie Antunez whose daughters were among the 2010 Class of college-bound young people whose parents are members of The Cotillion Society. In addition to participating in social activities and etiquette classes, this year’s class did volunteer work at numerous community  charities throughout the city. Through its Education Scholarship Fund, The Cotillion Society awards financial aid to deserving recipients.
    Master of ceremonies Mr. Philip J. Moy, Jr. began the formal presentation with the introduction of the two gentlemen prior to the six debutantes who wore the traditional, signature gold locket. After descending the staircase alone, each debutante was met by her father and escorted to the living room for the receiving line where they greeted their families and guests. Harpist Cyndi Lally and flautist Kathleen Mylecraine played music for both the presentation and the reception that followed.
    A palette of vibrant pink and deep purple set the tone for the stunning floral decorations created by Antoinette Byrne of PF Designs. The debutantes’ bouquets featured shades of pale to deep pink roses, whose colors were repeated in smaller bouquets accented with purple flowers that punctuated the lemon leaf garland festooning the balcony and staircase banister. Similar arrangements were used in silver candelabra centerpieces on the dinner tables that were covered with embroidered white organdy overlays.
    Each of the debutantes and gentlemen was introduced before fathers with their daughters and mothers with their sons had their traditional first dance to music by the Rockin’ Ravers who played later for the ball after dinner.
    The debutantes and their parents were: Alexis Gabriella Antunez, Mr. and Mrs. Juan Manuel Antunez; Julia Lynn Borden, Dr. and Mrs. Lester Stuart Borden; Caroline Joan Croasdaile, Mr. and Mrs. Richard Edward Croasdaile III; Samantha Rose Klonaris, Mr. and Mrs. William Theodore Klonaris; Leigh Kyrsten Richards, Mr. and Mrs. John Byron Richards; and Allison Claire Wynveen, Ms. Barbara Booth Wynveen and Mr. Bradley Allen Wynveen.
    The gentlemen and their parents were: Gregory Peter Pasiadis, Mr. and Mrs. Christopher Pasiadis; and John Russell Wilson, Dr. and Mrs. Thomas Stuart Wilson.
