Grovel Alert: Patriot Party’s Colors Of Courage

Patriots Party’s Colors of Courage Co-Chairs Laura and Dennis Moon have just sent word that tickets for the dinner, dancing and auction benefiting the Housing Crisis Center on Friday, November 3, are getting scarce.

Perhaps it’s because along with Honorary Co-Chairs Connie and Denny Carreker, Laura and Dennis have moved the fundraiser to the Bush Institute with retired Gen. Peter Chiarelli as the speaker.

And, of course, the Carrekers’ Jet Linx support has provided a real lift in spirits and funds.

The timing couldn’t be more perfect to set the mood for the upcoming Veteran’s Day on Saturday, November 11.

Before it’s too late, check out the tickets and sponsorship opportunities here!

Promising Youth Alliance Takes Flight In Closed Hangar

It’s not every day you have a party in a hangar, but then it’s not every day that you officially launch a project that you visualize as going national. That’s exactly what the Promising Youth Alliance team  introduced as their plans to a never-ending crowd Thursday night at Jet Linx. Why Jet Linx? Because one of the driving forces of PYA is none other than Jet Linx CEO/PYA  chair Denny Carreker (pictured).

According to Denny, they’ve been developing this project for a couple of years. “We’re not doing well as a country or a city in overcoming our youth challenges.”

Something like 100,000 kids go home from school in the afternoon and are basically unsupervised. After 3 p.m., a former Dallas police chief has said, “Juvenile crime explodes.”

Presently PYA has three pilot schools in the Dallas area that are proving grounds for the program utilizing Big Brothers Big Sisters, Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Dallas and Phoenix House of Texas. The leadership wants to expand it to other schools in the area and, eventually, take it to a national basis.

Celebrating the unveiling of the plans in the Jet Linx hangar with two mighty fine jets on hand (what else would one expect to find in a hangar?) were models displaying William Noble jewelry. While Lezlie Noble (pictured) may have been mistaken for one of the models, she was guesting it with good friend Laura McClung.  . .  And speaking of models, fashion producer extraordinaire Jan Strimple made an appearance with golf instructor/husband Dan. . . . Connie Carreker (pictured center with Jan and Dan Strimple) looked refreshed following her and Denny’s trip to Europe. . . . Surprise of the evening was the TSA not allowing the mammoth doors of the hangar to be opened as the guest body count rose to over 300 as did the glistening factor.

According to PYA President/CEO John Rodgers, the following underwriters are making this dream come true: commercehouse, Ernst & Young, First Private Bank, Heritage Auction Galleries, Jet Linx, McKinsey & Company, Modern Luxury Dallas and William Noble Rare Jewels.
