News has just come in about the Junior League of Dallas’s annual Milestones Luncheon. Let’s get the housekeeping info over with first, so you can lock it down on your calendars. Date: Thursday, November 6. Place: Hilton Anatole’s Imperial Ballroom (formerly known as the Khmer Ballroom).
Now, for the good stuff. JLD President Julie Bagley reports the keynote speaker will be former First Lady Laura Bush thanks to speaker sponsor Ryan, the global tax services firm.
According to Julie, “We are honored to have former First Lady Laura Bush speak at The Milestones Luncheon in November. The Luncheon’s purpose is to educate and inspire, and as a member of the Junior League of Dallas herself, we could not think of a more fitting person than Mrs. Bush to emphasize the importance of voluntarism, empowerment of women and improving our community. Her experience and passion for key issues such as education and healthcare relate directly to the programs and mission of the Junior League.”
In addition to the Milestones Luncheon’s raising funds for the JLD Community Service, it also recognizes the Sustainer of the Year. And Regen Fearon is the 2014-2015 honoree.
Oh, what’s that? What exactly is a JLD sustainer? She is a member who is an outstanding example of JLD commitment and dedication. Just to prove that point Regen has held numerous leadership positions with JLD plus a very active in such organizations like the Big Sister Program, ChildCare Group, Commit and Dallas Assembly. Just recently Regen and her husband Dr. Jeffrey Fearon were named honorary co-chairs of the 2014-2015 Trains At NorthPark.
Tickets for the annual luncheon start at $175.
