According to 2013 Doing the Most Good Luncheon Chair Jan Pickens,
“The Salvation Army is best known for its Red Kettle Campaign, but did you know that the Doing the Most Good Luncheon is ranked as the largest fundraising luncheon in Dallas? This year’s luncheon will be held on Friday, November 15, at 12 p.m. at the Hilton Anatole Hotel. The speaker will be announced later this fall, and with past speakers such as six-time Grammy award winner Amy Grant and Toms Shoes Founder Blake Mycoskie, this luncheon will surely entertain and motivate you to want to do more for our community.
“This year’s Doing The Most Good Luncheon will also kick off the 125th anniversary of The Salvation Army locally and across Texas, followed by a year of exciting activities planned by 125th Anniversary Chair Charlotte Anderson.
“There’s no organization that I’ve ever been involved with that I have served my faith and others so visibly than The Salvation Army. It’s my fifth time to chair this event, so I must love its mission. The Salvation Army’s mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination.
“The Salvation Army is a worldwide organization known for its endeavors helping the unfortunate and disadvantaged without discrimination. The Salvation Army has extensive programs to assist with needs ranging from sheltering the homeless to providing summer camps and music instruction for children.
