Fond memories for a year, an affiliation for a lifetime.

The Debutante Program of Sarasota and Manatee Counties is an auxiliary of the Sarasota Orchestra and raises funds for our youth programs. A tagline for the Debutante Program is "Youth Serving Youth."

The Deb program is designed to recognize the notable young women who excel academically, socially and morally in Sarasota and Manatee Counties. More than the historical perception of Debs being introduced to “society”, our contemporary Deb program celebrates the accomplishments of exceptional young women embarking on their Senior year of high school in a family fun way.

Those who participate in The Debutante Program benefit as well from their affiliation with and connection to a select group of individuals who are also high achievers and invaluable resources, the program’s Post-Debutantes. The Sarasota/Manatee Post-Debutantes make up a group of accomplished women who have completed their educational endeavors, and are “breaking glass ceilings,” making their marks on professions, industries and communities throughout the US and the world. Regardless of a Debutante’s chosen path in life, she will forever have access to the network of Post-Debutantes who can serve as mentors, friends and role models, as well as sharing a commitment to community service.

To date, the Debutante Program has raised and contributed more than $1,500,000 to the youth programs of the Sarasota Orchestra.


Demonstrating that the modern Debutante is much more than a white dress, the girls show off their varied passions and activities.
