JOBS – The Movie

On Wednesday evening, all I could think about was how I would love to visit the mothership—Apple. As a mac user for 15 years I didn’t need to be asked twice if I wanted to attend the pre-screening for the movie JOBS, featuring Ashton Kutcher as the visionary, entrepreneur Steve Jobs.

Save The Date: Shopping with Partners Card

I couldn’t attend this event, but I am happy to share photos of all the charitable peeps and friends that celebrated the 21st Annual Partners Card kick-off party at Galleria Dallas on June 5th. This year, co-chairs Annika Cail, Katy Duvall and Sara Friedman will face the challenge of beating last year’s $1,115,854.00 achievement, no small feat I might add.

Run for the Roses: Derby Day at Lee Park

Copious amounts of champagne overflowed at the Veuve Clicquot bar on the terrace of Arlington Hall to celebrate Derby Day at Lee Park in May.  The philanthropic professionals at Lee Park Junior Conservancy certainly know how to great dressed every year for the annual Day at the Races—this year themed “Run for the Roses” was a tribute to honorary chair Caroline Rose Hunt.

Men arrived in dapper suits and donned hats and bowties, and the ladies looked lovely in summer dresses and hats of all proportions, especially fascinating fascinators. I attended as a “Best Hat” judge, along with my fellow judge cohorts Blake Stephenson, Rachael Abrams, and Cynthia Smoot, and mingled through the crowd critiquing each stylish ensemble.
