After the day’s luncheon, everyone should have headed home, but fundraising required venturing out as the weekend approached. At ZaZa Art, the Dallas Symphony Orchestra League celebrated Lisa and George Longinos’ being honorary co-chairs for the DSOL Debutante Presentation on Saturday, February 20, at the Meyerson.
Back in the Bubble, the John Wayne Film Festival was underway at Highland Park Village Theater for three days of movies and rubbing shoulders with the Duke’s kin to benefit the John Wayne Cancer Foundation.
Cattle Baron’s Ball Honoring 2016 Co-Chairs
Just a few doors down from the HPV theater, another cancer-busting event was taking place. It was the Cattle Baron’s gals shopping (a percentage of the sales went into the CBB coffers) and sipping at St. Laurent in honor of 2016 CBB Co-Chairs Cara French and Andrea Weber.
2015 CBB Co-Chair Tia Wynne was having to handle the hostessing duties. Her Co-Chair Mary Martha Pickens was in New York and finding the getting around town a doozy while Pope Francis was in the Big Apple hood.
Cara was looking forward to her cousin Blair Farris coming to town on Wednesday, October 14. Blair is the publisher/editor of Peachy The Magazine.
JB Hayes was back from a trip to Tuscany where Courtney and Neal Rider were celebrating the anniversary of their wedding there.
After Claire Emanuelson tried on a multi-colored, $15K fur cape, she and Piper Wyatt were on their way for a girls’ night out. Other guests included Joanna Clarke, Teffy Jacobs, Wendy Messmann, _
On the edge of the Bubble, Brian Bolke’s Forty-Five Ten was rocking with people watching better than the Grammy red carpet. It was “Chic” — the chic-est kick-off event for the November 7th Art for Advocacy being co-chaired by Paige and John Slates and benefiting Dallas Children’s Advocacy Center.
Itty-bitty Shelle Sills fessed up that by staying thin, she was better able to move through such jamfests. This one included Nancy Rogers, Faisal Halum, Niven Morgan and Shelby Wagner, Alicia and Scott Wood, David Droese (“Lately we’ve been doing the family thing.”), Muffin Lemak, Brooke Hortenstine, Julie Hawes, Missy Peck, Christen and Derek Wilson, Pat McEvoy, Jennie Reeves, Sunie Solomon, Antimere Robinson, Shane Monden and Nick Westerman.
The evening’s draw was so typical of Brian. Author Donald Robertson was all smiles while signing his “Mitford at the Fashion Zoo.” Oh, goodness, how the ladies were lined up whom Donald had illustrated on the shopping bags. Talk about wanting to be a bag woman!
In another area, “looks” expert Linda Rodin needed no spotlight. It was her glasses, her white/silver hair, her Bottox-less beauty or her outstanding cheekbones. It was the whole package that set her aside from the rest. Her zest for life and people dominated the scene. “I’ll have what she’s having!”
Claire and Piper, who had moved their girls’ night out to Forty Five Ten, were then headed back to Highland Park Village for din-din at Café Pacific.
