According to TACA RBC Wealth Management Custom Auction Gala Co-chair Jacquelin Sewell Taylor:
“My husband Phillip and I, as well as Nicholas Even, are thrilled to be the co-chairs of the 2012 TACA RBC Wealth Management Custom Auction Gala, to be held Friday, September 21 at 7:00pm at Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek. Lynn and Allan McBee are Honorary Chairmen and Wanda Gierhart is Auction Chairman.
“TACA Proscenium, presented by ALON USA and Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek, features two unique events benefiting the performing arts in North Texas. TACA Lexus Party on the Green, held annually in May, and the upcoming 47th annual TACA RBC Wealth Management Custom Auction Gala. Both signature events are held at Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek and raise more than $800,000 for North Texas’ performing arts community.
“The Gala is an elegant black-tie evening celebrating the culinary excellence of Chef Bruno Davaillon of Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek. Cocktails will be served at 7:00 pm, and a seated dinner will be served in the restaurant and private suites at 8:00 pm. Live music performances take place throughout the event. The exclusive, one-of-a-kind Live Auction is held immediately after dinner, followed by a lively After Party styled by Todd Events.
This year we are adding some extra punch–there will be several elements of the evening that are new, and will be fun surprises for guests. Along with the board and all our friends, we have been hard at work selling tickets; TACA reports that the evening is nearing “sell-out” status!
“Auction items have a new energy as well, including an LA trip to the Grammy Awards, front row seats at two Fashion Week collections, a custom garden installation and an exciting, huge package from American Airlines. Stay tuned to My Sweet Charity for a teaser countdown of the auction packages!
