Dear Family and Friends,

If you can believe it, I am a senior at Morgan Park Academy. This year has been exciting and very busy with the college application process, rehearsals and performances for two shows I’m in.

I will be presented by my father, Daniel Brisard, at The Chicago Illinois Chapter of the Links 60th Annual Cotillion.  The Chicago Links debutante cotillion has been a time-honored tradition that honors the positive academic accomplishments and extracurricular achievements of young, African American Women in the Chicagoland area.

Since inception in 1960, more than a million dollars has been raised to assist many local and national organizations. Each debutante is responsible for soliciting contributions for the Souvenir Journal and/or general fundraising. The Chicago Chapter of The Links, Incorporated is committed to raising awareness and decreasing the stigma of mental health conditions.

My goal is to raise $5,000. I hope you will support me by purchasing a tribute page in the souvenir journal or making a donation.  All contributions over $250 are tax-deductible.

All tribute pages are 8×10.  We are happy to design the tribute page if you would like us to.

A tax deduction letter will be provided by the Links Foundation for donations greater than $250.  Click here for more information about tax deductibility.

Call Sonja Brisard


Your donation will support mental health organizations in the Chicagoland area.  The Debutantes and Escorts will help decide which organizations are supported.

Donations will be accepted through Saturday, March 14, 2020.


Your support of my 2020 Debutante Cotillion experience means a lot to me. This is a very special moment in my life.  I thank you in advance for your consideration.

With Love,

Hailey Theresa Brisard
