Darren McGrady has delighted the taste buds of British royalty like Queen Elizabeth and Princess Diana. He’s amazed the big-buck types at the Chihuly patron party with mini-Chihuly works of art that tasted as good as they looked. And the tales Darren could tell!
And perhaps he’ll do just that for the winner of the 7th annual Fresh Faces of Fashion raffle.
But there’s more than Darren charming and chatting. The winner along with nine BFF’s will have an evening that would send any Anglophile into a dizzy. Just imagine having butler service prepare your table, greet and serve your guests a four course dinner “based on dishes served at Buckingham Palace.” That includes both food and wine pairings, of course. Each guest will receive an autographed copy of Darren’s top-selling cookbook, “Eating Royally.”
The location of this night of feasting is up to the winner. Warning: Windsor Castle is already booked. Darn.
And speaking of the “mother country,” the winner’s prize is not finished. S/he’ll received two roundtrip tickets to London. Before you go, make sure that you check with Darren about the must-see places to visit and dine.
Now, let’s get down to business. The tickets are going for $50 each or $100 for three. They can be purchased from any of the 2013 Fresh Faces of Fashion, who have been challenged to sell, sell, sell those raffle tickets.
Just in case you need a reminder who makes up this year’s class of FFF’s, they are Nicole Barrett, Peyton Blackwell, Paige Hardison, Bailey Harrison, Bentley Hill, Jessica Jones, Cristina Lynch, Maddy McKinley, Priya Bhola Rathod, Rachel Riley, Melody Rogers and Nicole Stewart.
This year’s goal is 2,000 raffle tickets. Even if they don’t make that number, but make 1,500 the money will fund the Suicide and Crisis Center of North Texas programs for a year.
Gala Committee Chair Yvonne Crum and Honorary Chair Martha Wyly Miller have arranged for the drawing to take place on Wednesday, May 2, and for Modern Luxury Dallas, Stanley Korshak and Park Place Porsche to return as presenting sponsors.
