ReuNight Returns: An Evening in Provence at The Nasher Sculpture Garden, Benefiting The Family Place

ReuNight: And just like that… life returns to a new normal in 2022, and social activities seem appropriate, especially when supporting one’s fave non-profit, such as The Family Place.

It’s been over ten years that, in some small way, I’ve supported The Family Place, either by attending events, through media partnerships, participating in Partners Card or as honorary chair of Partners Card in 2018. So it seemed perfectly appropriate to honor my dear friend Mimi Sterling‘s first year as CEO of The Family Place when they invited me to chair the ReuNight annual dinner gala. I’m also excited that my sweet friends Marisa Howard and Roni Proter Kelly will join me as co-chairs and that the legendary retail extraordinaire Shelle Sills will join us as the honorary chair. What a crew!

Forty Five Ten a luxury emporium in downtown Dallas

Style: A hard hat is not my usual weekend attire, but when my friend Brian Bolke president and co-founder of Forty Five Ten asked to meet downtown for a rendezvous at the new store while still slightly under construction, I happily traded my Saturday morning yoga pants for safety goggles. I was honoured to get a sneak peek into the luxury flagship store Forty Five Ten on Main Street in the heart of Downtown Dallas before the grand opening event.
