About Us

The Fun Set Social and Charity Club was founded and organized in 1966 by the late Dorothy Bowens-Ammons. She was a native of Jackson, Tennessee. After some research she saw the need to create a social activity in the city of Huntsville. From there she organized a club consisting of African American Women. They named the club the Fun Set Social Club. After a few years, the organization saw the need to develop community service and programs focusing on education, health, wellness and community outreach. The organization changed the name to the Fun Set Social and Charity Club and later became a 501(C)(3) organization.


In 1979, the first inaugural "Beautillion Ball" took place at the Carriage Inn Hotel, where thirty young men were formally introduced to society. Since then, more than 1,000 young men have been welcomed into this tradition. As they step into society, they are inspired to chase their aspirations, contribute to their community, and uplift one another. The brotherhood established during the Beautillion Season endure a lifetime, transcending generations to create a supportive network for mentorship, guidance, and empowerment, shaping the leaders of tomorrow.
