Want To Be A Debutante?

Please note that we are no longer accepting debutantes for the 2024 White and Red Ball.  If you are interested in learning about the Debutante process, please review our guidelines found here.  You can submit your information below to join our debutante mailing list for future years.


Dear Potential Debutante,

Thank you for your interest in the Legion of Young Polish Women!  We are always looking for outstanding young ladies to be presented at our White & Red Ball.

Bal Amarantowy Debutantes learn ballroom dancing, charitable-fundraising techniques, and social decorum that enable them to interact with the public at large. These young women develop characteristics and acquire life skills needed for success in their future careers.  The various volunteer opportunities, charitable outreach and service projects they engage in allow them to give back to their communities. Legion Debutantes make lifelong friendships and cherish the memories of their debut forever!

The Legion awards higher education scholarships to our top fundraising earners and crowns a Queen of the Ball.  Scholarship amounts are currently: Queen ($3,000), 1st Runner Up ($2,000), and 2nd Runner Up ($1,000).

Your unique, once-in-a-lifetime "Cinderella moment" awaits...

Please fill out the form below so that we can contact you with additional details related to the White and Red Ball and answer any questions.
