This signature event, hosted by Modern Distinctive Ladies, Incorporated (MDL) cultivates elegance and poise. MDL Inc. will use the Debutante Cotillion as a means to award young ladies for their pledge for purity, scholastic achievement, community service, fundraising efforts, and overall participation in the Purity P.E.A.R.L.S. Debutante Cotillion program. We embrace this belief by serving as instruments of faith, fortitude, and integrity. We are quite confident that we can make an impact on your daughter's life as well as leave an imprint on her heart. We will encourage, polish, and stimulate your daughter's personal purpose, by teaching the essence of what makes ladies who are PURE great! For many young ladies this is truly the WHITE DRESS EXPERIENCE OF A LIFETIME! Although this is our first year we are planning a memorable and rewarding experience for our participants.
