Cotillion Society of Cleveland holds its 46th annual ball

    The Cotillion Society of Cleveland presented eight daughters and sons of its members’ families at its 46th annual Cotillion Ball held at The Country Club in Pepper Pike.
    Janeen Frank, Dr. Linda Neiheiser and Sandra Polgar, mothers of the three debutantes, were chairmen of the ball, the celebratory culmination of the Cotillion Society’s activities that include community service projects, social gatherings and etiquette classes. The Society also funds an education scholarship program that awards financial aid to deserving college-bound recipients.
    Mr. Philip John Moy, Jr. served as master of ceremonies for the formal presentation. He began with the introduction of the five gentlemen (one in absentia) prior to the three young women, each of whom descended the staircase alone, as music was played by harpist Cyndi Lally and flautist Kathleen Mylecraine. Wearing the gold signature lockets and carrying bouquets of roses, each of the debutantes was then escorted by her father to the living room for the receiving line to greet their families and guests.
    Roses in shades ranging from the palest pink to vibrant fuchsia were featured in all the floral decorations, created by Toni Byrne of PF Designs, which included mauve lilies with both white and chartreuse hydrangeas. Mass arrangements accentuated with Victorian palms flanked the doors to the terrace where guests enjoyed a cocktail reception before adjourning to the dining room. Prior to dinner were the traditional first dances of fathers with their daughters and mothers with their sons, as music was played by the Rockin’ Ravers Band. The band played for the ball after dinner that was served at tables covered with pale sage green cloths centered with roses arranged in tall silver candelabra.
    The debutantes and their parents were: Melanie Ann Frank, Mr. and Mrs. Bruce Douglas Frank; Noelle Marie Neiheiser, Mr. and Dr. William Norman Neiheiser; and Aimee Marie Polgar, Mr. and Mrs. Timothy Thomas Polgar.
    The gentlemen and their parents were Colin Leed Bowen, Mr. and Mrs. Richard Lee Bowen; Nicholas James Hostoffer, Dr. and Mrs. Robert William Hostoffer, Jr.; Matthew Eric Rothfusz, Dr. and Mrs. Eric Ralph Rothfusz; Thomas Anthony Visconsi II, Mr. and Mrs. Anthony Thomas Visconsi; and John Griffin Wilber, Dr. and Mrs. John Howard Wilber.
