Jeannie Terilli opened the upstairs of her Lower Greenville Avenue restaurant Tuesday at 4 for the KidneyTexas, Inc. crowd to honor KidneyTexas, Inc. Luncheon and Style Show’s Honorary Co-chairs Reneè and Dr. David Winter, and Honorary Service Award Recipient Ann Dyer.
Who would have thought the parking was already in overload at that time of day? Ah, but this is the good old summertime and this area of Greenville is ideal for chatting over drinks.
KidneyTexas, Inc. President Natalie Taylor handled the emcee duties explaining KidneyTexas Luncheon Co-chair Lauryn Gayle White was absent due to being under the weather. Not to worry. Co-chair Terri Bumgarner carried on in her stead reporting that everything was all-systems-go with fashions from Tootsies for the September 24th luncheon and Jan Strimple-produced style show at Brook Hollow.
Then Renee and David spoke to the crowd. David told of the incredible developments that had been made in the area of kidney disease treatments. Even those who barely know how to apply a Band Aid were amazed as David explained it.
Then Ann told how honored she was to receive the award and how the cause was so very special. In addition to her years as a Kidney Texas volunteer and board member, she spoke about her son’s being treated for the disease.
In the crowd were Pamela Graham, Carmaleta Whiteley, Di Johnston, Lynn Dealey, Ramona Jones, Carolyn Morris, Carol Plunk and Tiffany Divis.
