Notable Moments: The festive evening kicked off with a lovely cocktail party surrounded by vibrant magenta décor as the Debutantes and their families arrived to be welcomed by the Auxiliary Desert Foundation leadership. The ballroom reveal evoked 1920’s draped backdrop, chandeliers and a custom black and gold dance floor as well as table settings and individual charcuterie plates for each guest. The traditional presentation of each young lady was beautiful and filled with cheers from families and friends. The transition to dancing immediately created a lively energy as everyone joined in the fun. The funds raised from the 2022 event will benefit Scottsdale Community Partners and Hope & A Future
