Friday, April 1, is gonna be ground zero for luncheon fundraisers in North Texas. As has already been posted, Community Partners of Dallas’ Chick Lit 10th Annual Luncheon at the Hilton Anatole will have natty Tim Gunn.
While some may have thought this event would suck all the air out of the lunch rooms, it was revealed that the Interfaith Auxiliary Luncheon is providing an alternative with award-winning journalist Hoda Kotb as the keynote speaker at the Dallas Country Club. Hoda, who was born up the road in Norman, Oklahoma, has gained fame in recent years as being Kathie Lee Gifford’s co-host on NBC’s “Today Show”’s fourth hour.
To add to the event’s hoop-la, Interfaith Auxiliary Luncheon Co-Chairs Amy Hegi and Libby Hegi revealed that former Crystal charity Ball Chairman Robyn Conlon will serve as the luncheon’s honorary chair that will benefit the children served by Interfaith Housing Coalition.
The Coalition “provides transitional housing for working poor families who are experiencing a housing crisis.”
So, don’t wait too long to decide where you’ll be lunching on April Fools’ Day. Both these events have all the signs of being sold out ASAP. Check with Xiomara Ross at 469.828.1806 about getting your place at the Coalition fundraiser.
