“A Legendary Evening” Kicks Off New Fundraiser For Family Compass With Luminaries Like Diane And Daryl Johnston

Just as Family Compass refreshed its brand by changing its name (used to be Child Abuse Prevention Center) last year, so they decided to tweak the annual dinner fundraiser. Instead of having a bunch of celebrities donning aprons and rushing around holding forks for ransom to raise funds, the 2013 Co-chairs Brynn Bagot Allday, Amy Camp and Michelle Meadows have transformed the evening into “A Legendary Evening.”

This legendary evening will take place Saturday, May 4, at the Ritz-Carlton with Honorary Co-chair Couple Diane and Daryl Johnston.

The evening’s emcee will be WFAA’s own, ever-charming Dale Hansen.

But the big names don’t stop there. The POA calls for “legends” to sit down for dinner with patrons to “enjoy engaging dinner conversation.” Among the legends who will be dining and chatting it up with guests: Ron Anderson, Gloria Campos, Mike Cantrell, Natale Clarke, Todd Conger, Rudy Gatlin, Kris Clinton, Justin Leonard, Melissa Poe, Tracy Rathbun and Lynae Fearing, Mico Rodriguez, Martha Tiller, Marty Turco, Bob Wright and James Yarbrough.

But it won’t just be trading stories with the legends and dining. Nope. They’ll also present Kelly Hoglund Compton with the Spirit of Compassion Award.

And, of course, what would a fundraiser be without silent and live auctions, music and cocktails?

Individual tickets start at $250 and sponsorships range from $1,000 to $25,000. Sign up ASAP and you’ll get to attend the patron party this week.
