If Dallas had an All-American poster gal, Ann Hobson would be a finalist if not the winner. In addition to the killer smile, the great cheekbones and the twinkling eyes, the blonde actually has even more going for her. There’s her fabulous taste (example: the Hobsons’ home-sweet-home), her smarts (Duke grad, don’t you know) and her cutie-pie Ivy Leaguer husband Lee Hobson and three kiddos. And then there’s her involvement in the community that has ranged from VNA, Episcopal School of Dallas, TACA to the Dallas Museum of Art.
That last one is going to take full advantage of Ann’s time and talents in the year ahead, since she’s just been named to chair the 2017 Art Ball. But don’t worry about Ann. She’s an old hand at throwing soirees at the DMA. Just back in 2013, she co-chaired the Museum’s polished Silver Supper with present DMA Chairman of the Board Melissa Fetter.
While details are still being worked out, there will still be the auction, seated dinner and dancing. So, put Saturday, April 22, on your “must-attend” list. If it follows Ann’s usual POA, the gala will be smart, elegant and fun.
