There are women within the North Texas community, who not only witnessed its growth, they were the driving forces. Three of those women are Lindalyn Adams, Ruth Altshuler and Deedie Rose. Time and again, their fingerprints have been all over the area’s most successful developments in history, art, health, education and welfare. They are a true treasure trove of knowledge, experience and memories that needs to be tapped.
And the Junior League of Dallas is going to do just that at the annual Milestones Luncheon on Thursday, November 12, at the Hilton Anatole Hotel.
The three Linz Award recipients will make up a panel with former first twin/NBC’s Today contributing correspondent Jenna Hager moderating.
All three are known for being articulate, gracious and having wicked senses of humor, so the chat should be a memory maker.
According to JLD President Meredith Mosley, “We are honored for the opportunity to listen and learn from three of Dallas’ most influential women, who have made Dallas a better place to live and inspire each of us to continue to serve, in hopes of making a greater impact on the community at large. Proceeds from the Milestones Luncheon and annual underwriting efforts, allow the JLD to grant $1 million to the Dallas community each year. This Luncheon also allows us to acknowledge the thousands of JLD members who together provide more than 130,000 hours of community service annually and make sure each donated dollar works its hardest to help those in Dallas who need it most.”
Still another highlight of the luncheon will be the honoring of the JLD’s Sustainer of the Year. For 2015-2016 that person will be Dr. Kimberly Yamanouchi, whose charitable work has included the Children’s Medical Center, Dallas County Medical Alliance, Genesis Women’s Shelter and Interfaith Housing.
