Families gather for Sweetheart Ball and Cotillion 

Firestone Country Club was the site for the 63rd Annual Sweetheart Ball and Cotillion March 9.

Fifteen outstanding young women, representing five area high schools, made their debut at this year’s event. Family members and honored guests, some whom are past debutantes themselves, shared in this memorable evening as these lovely young women are presented at the ball. Invitation to participate in the Sweetheart Ball and Cotillion is based on academic achievement, school and community involvement. 

The proceeds from this year’s event will once again benefit the Special Olympics of Ohio. In support of the Special Olympics, the debutantes baked cookies for The Special Olympics Valentine’s Party.  Throughout the year, the Debutantes also sent cards and letters of encouragement to their Special Olympic athlete pen pals.
