The San Antonio German Club Presents Debutantes At Ball

THE SCENE: The 136-year old San Antonio German Club recently hosted its annual Opening German gala in honor of the season’s debutantes. Held on a crisp, cool evening at the The Witte Museum’s Mays Family Center, the ball offered a glorious night of dining and dancing in celebration of the venue’s radiant group of young ladies being presented to society.

THE VIBE: Resplendent in gorgeous white gowns, the debs dazzled as they were presented by their fathers then led to their bows by their escorts. Following the presentation, the celebration continued as guests and debs alike danced late into the night to the various musical stylings of The New Royals. Elegant floral designs and décor for the evening were created by The Events Group in Houston.

THE CAUSE: The event chair was Christopher Hodge and The President of The San Antonio German Club is J.B. Musselman, Jr. Steeped in centuries-old tradition, the organization was formed in 1880 by a group of young men who had originally named themselves the “Ascension Club” and the name was changed in 1890 to the San Antonio German Club in honor of the popular ballroom dance of the era, “The German.” Over the past centuries, the San Antonio German Club has presented its debutantes during San Antonio’s social season.
