TWO MUCH TALENT:  Hungarian White Rose Ball awards two college scholarships

The debutants and their escorts: Alexis Enyedy-Beverly Hills and Alex Vickers- Dearborn; Veronica Kontosh- Southgate and Anthony Warren- Port Huron; Haley Feher- Livonia and Shane Danyko-Trenton; Lillian Mihalak-Lake Orion and Alex Marchelletta-Dearborn; Nicole Kovach-Milford and John Budjuso-Trenton

Dearborn - The 53rd annual Hungarian White Rose Debutant Ball awarded TWO college scholarships on Saturday Feb 5, 2011. The annual Debutant Ball which is held the first Saturday of every February usually awards one college scholarship to a student of Hungarian descent pursuing a fine arts degree.

 But this year the applicants were so talented the club decided to bestow the award to two deserving students. Justin Rito, an accomplished pianist and composer from Mount Pleasant and Max Geissler, a talented chellist attending U of M in Ann Arbor were both winners.  The winners performed at the ball and wowed the crowd.

The ball also introduced five young debutants into Hungarian society. Alexis Enyedy lives in Beverly Hills and attends Groves High School in Birmingham,  Haley Feher attends Livonia Stevenson HS, Veronica Kontos attends Anderson High School in Southgate, Nicole Kovach attends Milford High and Lillian Mihalak attends Lake Orion High School.  The debutants and their escorts performed the Palotas, a traditional Hungarian royal court dance prior to their introduction.  The music was provided by Harmonia, band music from the heart of Europe.

This years Honary Chairperson was Linda Enyedy. Linda was honored for her lifetime commitment to the advancement of Hungarian culture. Linda was one of the co-founders of Dancers Hungaria, and has been teaching Hungarian dance for many years.

Linda also started the only zither group in North America. She has been instrumental in almost everything Hungarian that happens in Michigan- from cultural displays to providing Hungarian expertise and extras to the film industry.

Linda has also taught the Palotos to the debs and their escorts for over 30 years. The ball was a huge success and we invite the community to enjoy the festivities with us next year.
