It’s hard to imagine chilly, sweater weather, but on Wednesday, May 13, the holidays were on the minds of the folks at Lublu in Preston Center.
The occasion was the Trains at NorthPark announcement party with Maynon Ballow showing Paolo Costagli jewelry and Lublu neighbor, R+D Kitchen, providing all types of appetizers.
Surrounded by designer outfits, Co-Chairs April Cook and Jennifer Tobin revealed that the Ronald McDonald House of Dallas fundraiser would be held from Saturday, November 21, to Sunday, January 3, 2016.
Instead of being on the lower level at NorthPark, this year the trains will be displayed on the upper level near Nordstroms.
In addition to Andrea Cheek, Ashley Sims, Carrie Arnot, Charlotte Savage, Heather Smith, Stephanie Hardeman and Sheryl Wylie, Bank of Texas’ Senior VP, Manager of Commercial Banking Pat Brockette and Dallas Market President Ryan Suchala were on hand reporting that BofT would once again be the presenting sponsor. This year will mark BofT’s seventh year in that role.
According to Pat, “Bank of Texas is pleased to once again be presenting sponsor of The Trains at NorthPark. The important work that the Ronald McDonald House of Dallas does in the community helps these children heal and helps keep the families intact during a difficult time in their lives.”
Here’s an idea. If you’re hard up for a Father’s Day Gift or an upcoming birthday gift, why not have one of the mini-train cars sponsored in that special person’s name. Just think — it won’t require any gift wrapping.
In the meantime, Lublu Manager Eneida Hatch reports that the fall collection is in house.
BTW, it wasn’t announced at the party, but word has it that Carolyn and Dr. Karl Rathjen will serve as honorary co-chairs.
The Trains at NorthPark website hasn’t gone up yet. It’s choo-chooing along. Until it does, information is available by calling 214.624.5365.
We’ll let you know when the Trains go online.
