There are few moments in a young woman’s life that mean as much as her debutante experience. Stepping into that spotlight in the white gown that you spent months and months shopping with your mother, grandmother, sister, etc., for is one not easily forgotten.

Such was the case for 16 young women presented at the Baton Rouge Delta Development Corp. and Baton Rouge Delta Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta sorority’s 48th annual Debutante Cotillion Aug. 3 at the Crowne Plaza.
