2016 Potowmack Ball

Each year the D.C. Society SAR honors the Children of the American Revolution at the Potowmack Ball. As young ladies from across the nation make their debut to society, the grand ballroom is illuminated by their elegance and grace. We would love for you to join us for this magical evening. C.A.R. young ladies between the ages of 17 and 21, or who are seniors in high school, are invited to be presented as debutantes. Young C.A.R. gentlemen are invited to serve as escorts.
