Event description

Description

More than 67 years ago, several local African American women started an effort to help girls be successful, high-achieving citizens. This movement evolved into the Les Femmes, a Portland-based organization focused on helping teenaged girls, build self-esteem, self-confidence, leadership skills and develop a heart for community service -- all attributes needed to thrive in society. The girls’ participation begins in middle school and culminates in a rites of passage event and Debutante Ball for high school seniors where they are introduced to the Portland community. We would like to invite you to our 67th Anniversary Les Femmes Debutante Ball.

The rich history of Debutante Ball is still vibrant today and ingrained in Oregon’s African American history. In fact, you will find that many of our Les Femmes graduates are college graduates and have become successful business women and leaders in our local community and beyond.

Each June, we host our Debutante Ball, a formal, elegant event for the family, friends, and community members to witness these promising young women. We would like you to become part of the maintaining the legacy of this historic organization and event by particpating to show your support and commitment to local youth.
