Winter Ball 

Beginning in 1958, Hill Branch again followed an East Coast model and started the Winter Ball, a black-tie debutante ball that raises money for the hospital through ticket sales and participant fees. During the bleak winter months, while most high school seniors are waiting to hear from colleges, Hill Branch asks young women and their families to put aside that anxious feeling for a bit, to focus on the coming December and the opportunity to celebrate the launch of these young adults while raising money for Children’s Hospital.
