Program for the L'Eleganza Beaux Arts Ball, a social fundraiser organized by the Elliottorian Business Women's Club of Detroit. The Club's founding purpose is to "stimulate interest in the field of business and build an educational program to aid in the advancement for leadership in the growing community." The ball was established to further this aim, with proceeds funding scholarships for women of color to attend Wayne State University. The program is full of advertising for local businesses in the African-Americans community, as well as sponsored well-wishes from local persons and businesses. A center spread shows full-length portraits of nine women, labeled as "Models 1973," including Michelle Hunt, "Miss Elliottorian 1973."

Price: $250.00
