It wasn’t exhausting to provide you with a theme for the debutante social gathering in honor of Unique Illinois Membership debutante Anya Washington. Identified for her love of journey — she has been to Germany, Hungary, Mexico, New Zealand, Iceland, Jamaica, Austria, Netherlands, Czech Republic and quite a few locations in the USA – “Wanderlust” was the theme for the soiree on Jan. 27 on the Jefferson Orleans North.
Mini-globes on the tables and a particular cake channeling Physician Who have been simply two of the ornamental touches. The delicacies, catered by the venue, additionally mirrored the around-the-world, cross-cultural theme with egg rolls, muffulettas, meatballs, mini pizza, steak kabobs, candy and bitter hen, fried oysters, Italian sausage, and shrimp Rumaki, as among the choices.
The social gathering had an official program that included an introduction of OIC members and their wives or important others, a presentation of the 2018 debutantes Kaitlyn August, Brice Berger, Alyssa Lastrapes, Andi Robinson, Victoria Thomas and Jaya Younger, culminating with the looks of Anya. Additionally a part of the evening was Anya and her fellow debutantes dancing a waltz with OIC members.
The fete was hosted by her grandmother Mrs. Rogerwene Duncan Washington and late Mr. William James Washington (King Illinois 2001), and attending have been Anya’s father and stepmother Mr. William James Washington II and Mrs. Claudia Bernhart, mom Ms. Krystal Knudsen, sisters Miss Ava Decide and Miss Ildiko Washington, aunt Ms. Marieva Knudsen, uncles and aunts Mr. and Mrs. Benjamin Paul Duncan Sr., Mr. and Mrs. Allan Pierlas, Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Walter Washington, in addition to visitors Mr. and Mrs. Benjamin Paul Washington Jr., Mrs. Doris Porter (who was the social gathering’s Mistress of Ceremony), Mrs. Tracey Wiley, Susan Cooper (Honorary Consul of the Federal Republic of Germany) Mr. and Mrs. H.A. Grienstead, Mr. Raymond Heim, and members of the Unique Illinois Membership.
At present a senior at Thomas S. Wootten Excessive College (Rockville, Md.), Anya was to reign a few week later as queen of the Unique Illinois Membership Ball.
