The holiday white-light night at The Broadmoor sparkled even brighter Dec. 22 when 21 young women were formally presented as the 2018 Colorado Springs debutantes.

The college freshmen who had graduated from seven area high schools were chosen for school achievements, volunteer activities and contributions to their community, as well as for the community contributions of their families.

Following a 52-year tradition, the philanthropic focus of the ball is acquisitions for the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center at Colorado College. A catalog at the arts center details those art additions.

The 2018 debutantes:

Madison Sea Babcock, daughter of Dr. Michael James and Kelly Babcock. She graduated from Cheyenne Mountain High School and attends Brigham Young University — Idaho.

Morgan Isabel Bee, daughter of Dr. James Michael Bee and Dr. Sheila Suzanne Colaw Bee. She graduated from Cheyenne Mountain High School and attends the University of Colorado.
