The Kappa Kappa Gamma Dallas Alumnae’s 2017 Tablescapes’ “Forever Blue and Beautiful” at the Dallas Country Club last October was quite a feast for the eye, the ears, the tastebuds and the bank account for area nonprofits. Thanks to area designers, sponsors and speaker Mark D. Sikes, Co-Chairs Beth Dike and Mary Hubbard ended up netting a record-setting amount of $230,000.
On Tuesday, February 13, they held a reception at Vicki Bartholow’s Highland Park home handing out checks to Akola Project, Camp Summit, Cristo Rey Dallas College Prep, Dallas Children’s Advocacy Center, Genesis Women’s Shelter and Support, Seniors’ Pet Assistance Network, Town North YMCA, Visiting Nurse Association (Meals on Wheels) and the Kappa Kappa Gamma Foundation.
According to Beth, “Mary and I are so honored to have been part of this event. The beneficiary organizations work tirelessly on behalf of our community, and we are thrilled to present these checks to further their excellent work.”
The gathering also provided an opportunity to recognize SMU Kappa Alumnae Pat McCall as the 2017 Platinum Key Honoree, who served as Honorary Chair of the event.
Mary described Pat as “a loyal and distinguished alumna of Kappa Kappa Gamma, and were so pleased to be able to shine a spotlight on her support of important organizations in our community and service to the entire north Texas region.”
Plans are already underway for the 2018 Tablescapes that will return to the Dallas Country Club on Monday, October 15, and Tuesday, October 16, with Sandy Ammons, Peggy Meyer and Kris Terry as the co-chairs.
Sorry tickets aren’t available yet, but sponsorships always are.
