Welcome to the Official Rochester Червона калина Debutante Ball Website. Every two years, the Rochester Debutante Ball Comittee is honored to present Upstate New York's young Ukrainian women to the surrounding Rochester, Buffalo, and Syracuse Ukrainian communities. Our next Debutante Ball will be in February 2016. In each Non-Debutante Ball year we sponsor and organize зимова забава (Winter Zabava). This years зимова забаваа will be held on February 7th. CLICK FOR MORE INFORMATION!
The Rochester Debutante Ball Committee consists of various members of the Rochester Ukrainian Community, and are active members of numerous Ukrainian Organizations.(Plast, CYM, UAFGR, ETC).
Every 2 years we host a debutante ball in Rochester for all of upstate New York. Whether you are coming as a guest or as a debutante, you can find more information about the Debutante Ball here.
Because our Debutante Ball is every two years, the committe has started a new tradition, зимова забава. Every other year we hold a Winter Zabava which is used as a fundraiser for future debutantes.
Come join us for an evening, as the Rochester Ukrainian Debutante Committee hosts a beautiful and elegent evening in downtown Rochester. The зимова забаваа occurs every opposite year to the debutante ball. Its purpose is to not only continue our strong Ukrainian Zabava traditions and have a good time doing it, but to also fundraise for future debutantes. The evening includes dinner, a silent auction, as well as a zabava band. All proceeds go to helping keep costs down for future debutantee's expenses.
Thank You to everyone who attends the Winter Ball, and a special thank you to all the companies and indivuduals who donate to the silent auction. We appreciate everyones support as we move forward and continue our traditions. The зимова забава is a fantastic event, and we hope you all can continue to come out and support the youth of our community. Thank You!Katya Kaleta , Chairperson of the Rochester Ukrainian Debutante Committee
