Strands of Elegance Cotillion 2018

Friends for Life Foundation, Inc. in collaboration with Phi Phi Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. will present Strands of Elegance the 9th Biennial Cotillion Ball on March 10, 2018.  

The Alpha Pearls Strands of Elegance Cotillion is a signature scholarship fundraising event sponsored biennially by Friends for Life Foundation, Inc. in partnership with Phi Phi Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.  For the past fifteen years, the Strands of Elegance Cotillion has been a vehicle for many to help support the educational dreams of our youth.  We have awarded hundreds of thousands of dollars towards college scholarships.  The program also offers an opportunity for the youth to develop a commitment to community service and showcases some of North Fulton’s brightest college bound high school junior and senior minority young ladies who have demonstrated a desire to excel.  

2018 Orientation Debutantes

2018 Orientation Debutantes

An eloquent orientation was held on August 12, 2017 at the Manor Golf and Country Club in Milton, GA, representing the first kick-off event.  In the months leading up to the ball, the debutantes will participate in inspiring activities that will devote special admiration to traditions, yet embrace present and future aspirations.  Unforgettable lessons and heart felt experiences from the Mother-Daughter Tea to painting with Dads, college tours, etiquette sessions, worship service and giving back to the community through service projects help challenge and develop the debutantes and elevate their quest to strive for excellence.
