More than 400 guests enjoyed a magical evening Dec. 23 when 22 debutantes and 28 honor guard were presented at the 56th annual Hinsdale Assembly Ball.

Friends and family watched a beautiful presentation performance by the Debutantes and Honor Guard during the event, which raised funds for the Hinsdale Hospital Foundation and the St. Thomas Hospice Bereavement Camps. The Assembly’s total contribution of $200,000 is vital to enhancing this community-based program.

To date, the Hinsdale Assembly Board has contributed almost $3 million for special projects and the purchase of state-of-the-art medical equipment thanks to the generosity of Debutante and Honor Guard families, members of our community and local businesses.
