Frazier’s involvement with the Black Cotillion in Evanston, through the NorShore Twelve, brought grace, elegance and culture to the community. With her watchful eye, many young women were guided into womanhood. Annually, the event attracted hundreds of guests to the Sherman House in downtown Chicago. Activities executed by Frazier were as follows: scheduling, costuming, distributing press releases, determining themes and music, rehearsals, and mailing invitations to new sets of bright young women.
