The Flora Award’s black-tie dinner at Texas Discovery Gardens on Thursday, November 1, honoring Barbara Hunt Crow is in a “grovel status” for tickets.
The Gardens themselves are such a treat and treasure, but the idea of dining there and honoring Barbara has created the almost-sold-out situation this soon.
In addition to being heavily involved with Texas Discovery Gardens (volunteer, donor, board member and chair), she has been hands-on with the Junior League of Dallas, Crystal Charity Ball, Cattle Baron’s Ball, Dallas Woman’s Club, SMU-in-Taos, the Godbey Lecture Series, the Dedman College at SMU and Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts.
According to Flora Award Chair Marilyn Waisanen, “Barbara demonstrates through her deeds what it means to give back to your community. The staff and board at Texas Discovery Gardens are especially appreciative of Barbara’s commitment to our mission of environmental education.”
Benefiting the Texas Discovery Gardens, Flora Awards have been presented in the past to Ellen and John McStay, Ebby Halliday Acers, Peggy and Carl Sewell, Dee and Charles Wyly, and Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison.
One of the fav spots at Texas Discovery Gardens is the Rosine Smith Sammons Butterfly House and Insectarium, where they daily release butterflies at noon.
For information on the few tickets left, call Sarah Gardner at 214.428.7476, Ext. 230, or email SGardner@TexasDiscoveryGardens.org.
