THIS year’s Rochester Debu­tante Ball was an­other glit­ter­ing suc­cess, with 19 cou­ples show­ing up in their debu­tante best.

Hosted by Rochester Hos­pi­tal Aux­il­iary on Septem­ber 21, all funds from the an­nual event went to Rochester and El­more Dis­trict Health Ser­vice (REDHS).

Prac­tice for the event kicked off in mid-June, with dance chore­og­ra­pher and in­struc­tor Leon McAsey tak­ing the reins and turn­ing left feet into finely tuned dance steps.

This year’s theme was eclec­tic, with bi­cy­cles and the quote “life is a beau­ti­ful ride, en­joy the jour­ney” the fo­cus.

Or­gan­iser Kate Lee said the aux­il­iary was com­mit­ted to fundrais­ing through­out the year, host­ing many so­cial events with all funds help­ing to pur­chase health aids and equip­ment for REDHS.

“This will be the third debu­tante ball hosted by the Hos­pi­tal Aux­il­iary for REDHS and this year 19 very ex­cited debu­tantes and their part­ners were pre­sented,” she said.

“This great tra­di­tional event is still em­braced by our lo­cal com­mu­nity and cel­e­brates our fu­ture gen­er­a­tion step­ping out into the big world.”
