Over at the Cattle Baron’s Ball’s Trailblazer’s Party sponsored by PlainsCapital Bank and PrimeLending, the co-chairs for the 2018 mega-fundraiser for cancer research and development were just announced.

In the footsteps of 2017 Co-Chairs brunette Sunie Solomon and red-haired Anne Stodghill, the group will be led by a couple of blondes and make that very blonde blondes! The twosome will be Katy Bock and Jonika Nix.

“Tricia and I, along with our underwriting chairs Katy Bock, Marybeth Conlon and Lori Anna Dees, are planning an unforgettable luncheon, whose proceeds will support the abused and neglected children served by CPD. To that end, we are so excited to announce Gail Corder Fischer as this year’s honorary chair. We are so grateful to Gail for her ongoing dedication to the children in our community and her support of the Chick Lit Luncheon.

“As well, CPD will be presenting the ‘2017 Partners for Children Award’ to the Peacock Alley Bitzer and Needleman families for their longtime support of Community Partners of Dallas. The Partners for Children Award is presented annually and celebrates the recipient’s commitment to the philanthropic needs of our community and their years of service meeting the needs of abused and neglected children.

“The 11th annual Chick Lit Luncheon will be held on April 21, at 10:30 a.m., at the Hilton Anatole. The event will include a wine reception followed by a seated luncheon and remarks by Ms. Frankel. Tables begin at $1,750 and are on sale now; individual tickets will go on sale in early April if space permits.
