The Orange Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. will present Guys in Ties Beautillion/Girls in Pearls Cotillion Gala on Saturday, March 30, 2019, at 7 p.m. at the Mount Olive Baptist Church Life Center.  The Cotillion/Beautillion will spotlight some of our finest High School Students in the city of Orange. This program has been sponsored annually by the Orange Alumnae Chapter for the past several years. The young ladies will be presented in white formal ball gowns and the male participants will wear black suits.  It truly will be an evening of beauty and elegance.

Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. was chartered on January 13, 1913, at Howard University in Washington, D.C.  One of our Chapter’s programmatic thrusts is educational development which is what this program is all about.  Our goal is to provide the participants in this program with educational scholarships to help them further their education.  

As a part of the program, the participants are also mentored by community leaders such as Mayor Larry Spears; Educator Benny Smith, Retired educator, Bettie J. Curtis; WO-C Food Service Director, Danielle Robinson; and Federal prison guard Rev. Fred Holifield.  The mentoring sessions will be held for three consecutive weeks prior to the Cotillion/Beautillion at the Bettie J. Curtis Library.

There are tickets available for the gala.  This event is open to the general public to purchase for a donation of $25 which includes a dinner meal.  The meal will consist of fried fish, baked chicken, mashed potatoes, green beans, corn, dessert, and drink.    The attire for this event is semi-formal.

So please come out and support the youth of our community and help the Orange Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta provide scholarships to the youth in our community.
