Another date to mark on your calendar just arrived. It’s lunch with a couple of cuties — Dallas Cowboy legend Emmitt Smith and NBC 5 sports guru Newy Scruggs on Monday, November 2. Was that an earthquake or were Emmitt and Newy shuddering over being considered cute?
The twosome will headline the 75h anniversary luncheon of Community Council of Greater Dallas at the Westin Galleria Hotel’s Dallas Ballroom.
According to Luncheon Chair Kristi Sherrill-Hoyl, “We are committed to celebrating the many accomplishments of the Council and to moving forward toward its vision to enhance the quality of life in Greater Dallas, enabling each individual to achieve his or her full potential.”
Will the fellows be talking sports? Probably. But if you know Emmitt, he is a Renaissance Man with a talent for business, philanthropy, community involvement and dancing.
BTW, Kristi has already organized quite an impressive host committee including Lindalyn Adams, Joel Allison, Jon Bennett, Jan Hart Black, Debbie D. Branson, Thomas Campbell, Gloria Campos, John Carlo M.D. and M.S., Christie Carter, Key Coker, Levi Davis, Debbie Dennis, Diana C. Dutton, Laura Estrada, Ruben E. Esquivel, Lois G. Finkelman, Veletta Forsythe-Lill, Adlene N. Harrison, Brenda Jackson, Margaret Jordan, Sharon S. King, Hon. Ron Kirk, Matrice Ellis-Kirk, Bob Lowe, Ann Margolin, Sara T. Martineau, Lynn McBee, Ken Menges, Regina Montoya, Alice Murray, Lisa Ogle, Connie O’Neill, Lori Palmer, Caren Prothro, Ann Stuart Ph. D., Michael J. Sorrell Esq., Michelle Thomas, Florencia Velasco-Fortner, Max Wells, Barbara Lord Watkins, Myron H. Watkins M.D., Katherine Wynne and Trea Yip.
So join Emmitt, Newy, Kristi and a boat load of impressive types to support CCGD in its leadership in assisting people to achieve a quality life and to access the services they need. It’s hard to believe that CCGD has been helping area folks since 1940, when “Gone With The Wind” won eight Oscars, Frank Sinatra debuted in Indianapolis with the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra, France fell to the Nazi invasion, and the population of the city of Dallas was a whopping 294,734.
