EIGHT Debutantes were presented to the Bishop of the Port Pirie Diocese, Greg O’Kelly, at one of Port Pirie’s most spectacular nights, the Blessing of the Fleet Debutante Ball.
Also in attendance at Saturday night’s ball was His Excellency the Governor of South Australia, Hieu Van Le.
Flower girl at this year’s celebration was Lauren McGinnis and page boy was James Mudge. The two young ball participants were beautifully dressed, as were the debutantes and their partners, and did a fantastic job in stepping out in front of more than 300 guests.
In keeping with previous years, Young Achiever Awards were presented to university graduates.
James Pisani and Vittorio Ciampi received awards from Mayor John Rohde.
