Event: The 71st annual Bachelors Club Christmas Ball was held at the Oklahoma City Golf & Country Club. Twenty-eight debutantes were presented to 550 people, a sold-out crowd. They were escorted by members of the Bachelors Club.

Tradition: The debutantes were invited to become debutantes during the Thanksgiving holidays by the members dressed in formal attire who traveled via limousine to their homes for a surprise visit. They presented the young women with a rose and brought etched glasses and bottles of champagne to celebrate.

Special touches: Decorations for the formal evening were by The Fleuriste and followed a white and gold theme. Gold satin tablecloths and gold chairs were set up and there several tables of large lighted glowing vases of white tulips, hydrangeas and amaryllis. Other tables held the flower bouquets and shining votive candles. The debutantes, in their white long gowns and long white leather gloves, carried nosegays of white roses. The escorts were dressed in white tie and tails. Souled Out Band played for dancing.

At the ball: Bob Ross, CEO and president of the Inasmuch Foundation, was given the Walter Powell award and was introduced that night. He was honored for his community and Bachelors Club activities. Tyler Montgomery Hagan is Bachelors Club president and selected Cleats for Kids as this year's beneficiary. The nonprofit organization received $35,000 from Ball proceeds. Judy Lehmbeck was Ball organizer.
