VIPs from over 30 hereditary organizations joined with the MDSSAR in December for the 54th Annual Patriots’ Ball hitting record attendance of over 130 people. Chairman Doug Favorite and his committee including Holly Atherton and Sasha Quillin who groomed the debutantes for a special entrance should be commended for their hard work. Emcee George Lewis did a great job of introducing the promenade of VIPs and five debutantes Emma Adams, Eva Bogino, Chase Brokaw, Vittoria Flick, and CAR National President Erin Jackson were presented to the attendees and greeted by SAR President General Thomas Lawrence of TX (who flew in for the event) and MDSSAR President James Engler.
