During the holiday season, Las Madrinas honored 35 Southern California families and their daughters for their service to the Southern California community and Children’s Hospital Los Angeles at the annual Las Madrinas Ball on Dec. 21 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

More than 900 guests from the greater Los Angeles area, including the debutantes, their families and friends, gathered to celebrate with the members of Las Madrinas.

The Las Madrinas Debutantes included Lauren Elizabeth Beaver, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John William Beaver (Pacific Palisades) and granddaughter of Mrs. Samuel Wilson Kyburz and the late Mr. Kyburz of Placerville.

Las Madrinas’ president, Diane Follen Hawley, formally welcomed the families and guests to this evening of tradition and thanked everyone for joining Las Madrinas with their support of the research programs at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.

She spoke of the current project, the Las Madrinas Pediatric Simulation Research Laboratory Endowment and then recognized the ball chairman Shannon Tebbetts Williamson and the debutante chairwoman Sarah Ward Cox II for creating the magical evening.

Member husband Gary Allen Darnell announced the debutantes, while member husband David Thomas Balfour served as director of presentation.

Las Madrinas was established in 1933 as the first affiliate group of Children’s Hospital Los Angeles and has been supporting pediatric medicine for 80 years. Since 1939, Las Madrinas has honored families who have demonstrated a commitment to the civic, cultural and philanthropic life of Southern California by presenting their daughters at the annual Las Madrinas Ball.

Donations made in honor of the young women, together with the annual support of Las Madrinas members and friends, have enabled Las Madrinas to complete eight major projects at the hospital since 1988.
