Kidney Texas Luncheon chair Emilynn Wilson has been promising the results of September’s KidneyTexas luncheon at the Dallas Country Club for ages. But she wanted to make sure every penny was counted and even then she double-checked that total a couple of times.
Finally, she announced the results Tuesday at Highland Park Village’s Escada surrounded by friends, fans and beneficiaries —$190,558 to be “disbursed” among UT Southwestern, Children’s Medical Center and Camp Reynal.
BTW, here’s a note about how photos are taken among the well-heeled sets: Name tags are verboten when being photographed. Everyone is assumed to know everyone, don’t you know. So, when the photogs line folks up to be “shot,” name tags are slapped on the back. Now you know, as if you hadn’t already been slapped on the backside. Wink, wink.
Another note of interest: When it comes to having a hands-on involvement, Emilynn is the real deal. Not only did she supervise the luncheon, she borrow the tableclothes from a “dear friend” and had them laundered meticulously before returning them. Emilynn wanted the occasion to be special even down to the linens.
