The chic Chick Lit-ters nestled down last night to learn the deets for Community Partners of Dallas’ Chick Lit Luncheon. While others may have chattered in other parts of Dallas due to the evening’s chill, the gals warmed up with llittle girl jammies and tunics at Roberta Roller Rabbit in Highland Park Village.
CPD President/CEO Paige McDaniel served as emcee telling the 50 guests (Sandy and Barry Moore, Jill Goldberg, Nikki Webb, Lindsay Ballotta, Andrea Cheek, Francie Mancillas, Katie Robbins, Jennifer Lelash, Maggie Kipp, Elizabeth Dacus, Lisa Bhattacharya, Elizabeth Gambrell and Jennifer Tobin) the luncheon is scheduled for Friday, April 24, at Brook Hollow, with Wendy Messmann as luncheon chair and Carol Seay serving as honorary chair, and the ORIX Foundation receiving the 2014 Partners for Children Award.
As for the author, it’s going to be Stacey Ballis, who in addition to writing such novels as “Off the Menu”, “Out to Lunch” and “Recipe for Disaster”, is currently working on a cookbook called “Cooking for You: Wellness in the Kitchen” for release in 2015.
Returning once again as presenting sponsors are Lara and Dr. Robert Tafel!
So mark your calendar and buy a couple of places. They’d make terrific holiday gifts and need minimal wrapping. All you need is to buy one of Stacey’s books and put the invite inside.
This luncheon is a sell-out each year, so don’t put it off.
BTW, if you want info on sponsorship, Joanna Clarke is your go-to-chick.
