Debbie Bancroft is a socialite, society columnist, and philanthropic busy bee.

Although Bancroft runs with the socialite set and raises big bucks for various causes around town, she and her banker husband Billy aren't the billionaire heirs to any fortune. Nevertheless, Bancroft has been building her rep as a woman-about-town for years now, reporting from the front lines of black-tie benefits for society mags like Hamptons Style and Avenue and serving as a onetime muse to fashion designer Douglas Hannant. A staple on the benefit circuit, Bancroft raises money for causes like the ABT, Drama League, New Yorkers for Children, and Parrish Museum in Southampton. [Image via Getty]
