This year’s debutante ball took place on Saturday, February 25th in Parsippany, NJ. Five girls from our riy Rakety, Sophia, Julia, Olivia, Tatiana, and Christina, debuted and all three of the boys in our riy, Danylo, Stepan, and Zachary, were escorts. This was a very special night for us all and one we had been waiting for our whole lives. Being presented into society with our fellow cymivtsi and best friends from different oseredoks was an extraordinary experience. The zabava really showed how strong our CYM community is and how fun CYM events are. The ball helped our riy remember how lucky we are to part of such an amazing organization. It was a night we will remember for the rest of our lives.
