La Fiesta de las Seis Banderas, now in its 37th year of service and support of 17 Dallas area beneficiaries, has gifted more than $9.9 million since 1986.
Ashley Dugas and Michelle Hopper chaired the Viva! La Fiesta Mexico-inspired Announcement Party on Dec. 16 at the historic Belo Mansion, where La Fiesta introduced the 2022 duchesses and escorts.
Earlier in the day, Tootsie’s hosted the annual “Duchess Dip” event. The girls, clad in their respective college T-shirts, learned “the dip” from Britney Tynan Sisk, a dance instructor with Preston Center Dance. They later practiced their presentation bow for their mothers.
The 82 Duchesses and Escorts will be formally presented on June 11 at the La Fiesta de las Seis Banderas Presentation Gala at the Fairmont Hotel. Melissa Rieman and Kasey Bevans are this year’s chairs.
