Just as Turkey and dressing are synonymous with Thanksgiving, so are the Debutante Cotillions of the Milwaukee AKA Epsilon Kappa Omega Chapter and the Christian Business and Professional Alliance.
Each year on the Thanksgiving weekend, the two cotillions present young ladies of color to society, providing them a forum for expressing and sharing their God given talents and skills.
The cotillions also provides scholarships to the participants who undergo a rigorous regimen of scholastic endeavors, community service, fundraising and exposure to–in the case of AKA debutantes–the principles of exemplary service and exceptional character embraced by Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority.
