2020 DEBS, HONOR GUARD ANNOUNCED
The Hinsdale Assembly is proud to announce its 2020 Debutantes and Honor Guard.
These young women and men will engage in a number of social and community service projects throughout the year and will participate in the Hinsdale Assembly Ball Dec. 23 at the Hilton Chicago/Oak Brook Hills Resort.
For 2020, the Hinsdale Assembly has committed to donate to Hinsdale Hospital’s Behavioral Health service line. Mental health is an extremely important need for children and families. The assembly is determined to make a positive impact in the community with improving mental health awareness, treatment, and access to the help for those in need. By coming together with AMITA on this increasingly alarming reality, the assembly hopes to elevate the entire service line and truly improve the well-being of the community.
