According to Junior League of Dallas’ Milestones Luncheon Chair Hollee Hirzel,
“We would like to extend an invitation to the entire Dallas community to join us for our fifth annual Milestones Luncheon on November 12, 2015, at the Hilton Anatole Hotel. This Luncheon is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate and acknowledge the thousands of Junior League of Dallas (JLD) members, who together provide more than 130,000 hours of community service annually and make sure each dollar donated works its hardest to help those in Dallas who need it most.
“This year, we are honored to welcome past Linz Award Recipients and three of Dallas’ most influential women, Lindalyn Adams, Ruth Sharp Altshuler and Deedie Rose for a special panel discussion. For 86 years, the Linz Award has been Dallas’ most prestigious honor and symbolizes the highest form of recognition for civic service and accomplishment, all of which Adams, Altshuler and Rose have successfully and poetically achieved. Jenna Bush Hager, contributing correspondent on NBC’s Today show and editor-at-large for Southern Living Magazine, will moderate the discussion.
“Also at the Luncheon, we will recognize Dr. Kimberly J. Yamanouchi as the 2015-2016 Sustainer of the Year. Each year, one esteemed member of the JLD receives this honor as a reflection of her commitment and dedication to the League and the community. Dr. Yamanouchi continually reflects the mission of the League through her activism in the community, her commitment to health and medicine, and her charitable work with organizations like Children’s Medical Center, Dallas County Medical Alliance, Genesis Women’s Shelter and Interfaith Housing. She is a devoted leader in the community and Junior League of Dallas is proud to honor her this year.
“Check-in will begin at 11:00 a.m. The Luncheon will start at noon. Individual Luncheon tickets are $175, and Patron Luncheon tickets are $250. Table sales begin at $3,000. To purchase tables or individual tickets, please contact the JLD Development Office at 214.357.8822, ext. 118 or visit www.jld.net/luncheon for more information.
“Proceeds from the Luncheon, along with generous annual underwriting efforts, allow the JLD to grant $1 million to the Dallas community each year. We hope you will mark your calendar for Thursday, November 12, 2015, and join us at the Hilton Anatole Hotel!”
