For nearly nine decades, Pittsburgh has been presenting its young ladies to society as part of the second-oldest debutante ball in the country, the Cinderella Ball.

As part of a longstanding tradition of supporting the city through charitable fundraising, each debutante fulfills a minimum of 30 hours of volunteer service for the designated beneficiary, which in 2013 will be the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust. The debs then will be presented by their fathers during the ball on Jan. 26.

On Sunday, co-chairs Catherine Loevner and Diana Rath welcomed 21 debutantes during the Cinderella Women's Committee Mother-Daughter Tea at the Benedum Center.

"We're really excited about the girls we have; they're really nice young ladies," said publicity chair Heather Chronis.

The debutantes are Isabel Aiken, Anna Arnn, Samantha Ballengee, Stephanie Betts, Lyndsay Bozzone, Maclean Calihan, Hanna Chait, Rose Egan, Katherine Girdhar, Samantha Goodman, Olivia Loevner, Sydney Mordoh, Caroline Muse, Campbell North, Athena Petredis, Madison Pollock, Brooke Roberts, Caroline Stamy, Maegan Stump, Julia Teti and Meryl Warshafsky.
