Columbia Beaus 2021

2024 Beautillion:

Welcome to the Columbia Chapter of Jack and Jill of America, Inc. 22nd Biennial Beautillion - Since 1983, the Columbia Chapter of Jack and Jill of America, Inc. has sponsored 20 Beautillions to celebrate the achievements and excellence of hundreds of young African American men of promise.

The objective of the Beautillion is to highlight our Beaus' achievements while offering meaningful educational, cultural, civic, social, and service leadership programs and activities in honor of a symbolic journey taken from adolescence to manhood. The culminating event is the Beautillion Ball, which is the formal presentation of the young men to the local community.

The Beautillion is also a fundraiser that supports the Jack and Jill Foundation, and other local charities.

We hope you will join us year.
