While other jewel boxes. . . uh, stores were locked up as tightly as a pair of Spanx Wednesday night at NorthPark, Eiseman Jewels was overflowing with people. . . and happy people at that.
The reason was the patron party for the 3rd annual Accessible Luxury benefiting Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children. Last year’s event raised more than $50,000. And as a DJ provided a musical background, the real entertainment came in the form of a raffle for the winners to have their pick of Eiseman jewelry for the April 21 event at Park Place Dealerships.
Event Co-chairs Heather and Robert Murphy revealed that the fundraiser would feature foods from Kent Rathbun, Park Place luxury vehicles, fashions from Pockets and Oscar de la Renta and, of course, jewelry from Eiseman. They also thanked sponsors like Dana and Mike Arnold, Mary and Allen Schaar, Andrews Kurth LLP and Community Trust Bank.
While Betsy Eiseman was chatting with guests, husband/Eiseman main man Richard Eiseman was handling emcee duties with Texas Scottish Rite’s PR cutie Peggy Meyer.
The drawing was held. Then there was a meeting of the minds and a momentary timeout. What was the problem?
Turns out that both winners came from the same family. Seems the wife put her name down on one raffle ticket and her MIA husband’s name on the other.
Won’t know which pieces they’ll select for the night, but you can imagine they’ll dazzle.
