Remember last year’s Saint Valentine’s Day Luncheon and Fashion Show? Sure, you do. It was the one that ended with the ladies heading to their cars as Dallas got hit by a wintry blast. Ah, but the ladies had Lady Luck on their committee and managed to pull the whole thing off before things got grim.
Once again the gals are being threatened with snowfall, but they’re absolutely fearless. They just sent word that tomorrow’s event at the Hilton Anatole is a definite “GO!” At the recent patrons party, they announced that they had a back-up plan — slumber party at the Anatole the night before. Wonder if they’ll be telling ghost stories tonight?
Or, they just might be writing thank you notes to Stanley Korshak’s Crawford Brock. You ask why? Well, this info from the committee is pretty self-explanatory:
“For more than 10 years, Crawford Brock of the renowned retail outlet, Stanley Korshak has been an integral part of the Saint Valentine’s Day Luncheon and Fashion Show. Not only has Stanley Korshak been a major cash sponsor of this event, donating over $600,000 in cash alone since 2002, Crawford and his store have provided in kind donations as well that have significantly decreased the expenses associated with this magnificent production. In addition, as the Fashion Presenting Sponsor, Crawford Brock and the team at Stanley Korshak, have been dedicated to supporting the mission of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Whether it be through underwriting production costs, providing stylists and models, securing and flying in designers such as this year’s designer, Carolina Herrera or through hosting kickoffs and events to promote the Luncheon and Fashion Show, their support has helped create a one of kind event that every Dallasite wants to be a part of while raising vital funds for cancer research. We would like to nominate Crawford Brock and Stanley Korshak for the Partners Against Leukemia & Lymphoma Award as they truly are a partner in the fight against blood cancers.”
