While the Center for BrainHealth was celebrating at the Dallas Country Club about new members of the team and the progress of the Institute for Brain Performance on Tuesday, December 8, the animal loving SPCA-ers were surrounded by a lot of bling and bubbly. Here is a report from the field:
It was a festively out of this world evening as friends gathered at Matthew Trent Jewelry Design Studio at the Plaza at Preston Center for a Cosmic Holiday Celebration to support the SPCA of Texas’ upcoming Fur Ball 2016! Guests were all decked out in holiday splendor, and joined Chair Phyllis Comu, Co-Chair Kristen Greenberg and Auction Chair Sandra Fite for a cosmically fantastic night filled with holiday cheer.
Gorgeously delicate dog bone necklaces in gold, white gold and silver, custom-made by Matthew Trent Jewelry Design Studio just for the soiree, along with other dazzlingly bejeweled masterpieces glistened brightly on display. The festive lights of the Plaza at Preston Center shone in the background, complementing the delightfully warm glow of the party.
Champagne and wine were passed while guests enjoyed a plethora of delectable delicacies which included petit Caesar salad in parmesan nests, apricot and goat cheese lollipops, prosciutto-wrapped asparagus, guacamole in a corn chip cup, a cheese platter and chocolate and gingerbread cake balls. The evening’s superb staffing was provided thanks to KMG Events.
Sincere thanks to Matthew Trent Jewelry Design Studio for welcoming the festive crowd and for donating 10% of proceeds from the evening’s sales to the SPCA of Texas! Special thanks to Matthew and Lori Trent and Kiley Trent and her fiancée Mac Kelly and their dog Melee (a SPCA of Texas alum!) for hosting the beautiful bash.
