Junior League of Wyandotte and Johnson Counties – Community Ball and Cotillion

The Kansas City Marriott Downtown was the site for the Junior League of Wyandotte and Johnson Counties’ Community Ball and Cotillion. Stephanie Wilken served as Ball chairman, with Monica Browne and Sally Dannov as the Cotillion co-chairmen for the elegant event on December 1st. Guests enjoyed seeing the young pages, dining on gourmet fare, and the evening’s highlight: the presentation of the honorees, all seniors and juniors in high school.
