ALBANY — The Charity League of Albany held its 2019 Debutante Ball on December 28, 2019 at Doublegate Country Club. The highlight of the evening was the presentation of the young ladies of the 2019 Albany Debutante Club.
The purpose of the Debutante Club is for the members to become better acquainted with the needs of the community in charitable, educational, cultural and civic areas, to respond with volunteer service and to engage in a fundraising project.
The 2019 Debutante Class worked to raise funds for the Gloria Tongol Wellness Fund to help support oncology patients currently in treatment and give them the best possible quality of life while healing. Representatives of the group delivered a check for $9,500 to help support the Phoebe Oncology Center and the patients it serves.
