While the Go Red For Women Luncheon patrons were filling Ann and Bob Dyer’s home overlooking Turtle Creek, the 2018 La Fiesta De Las Seis Banderas duchess and escort moms were quite at home at Libby Hunt’s Volk Estate mansion on Thursday, February 22.
Despite the damp chill of the night and the bumper car accidents throughout North Texas, the Hunt home was the perfect place to seek comfort and chatting with La Fiesta De Las Seis Banderas Board of Directors President Missy Rothwell and 2017 La Fiesta Co-Chairs Rebecca Gregory and Nancy Monning.
2018 La Fiesta Co-Chairs Anne Besser and Elizabeth Gambrell were still amazed at the turnout the night before for the La Fiesta gents’ get together. Having attended more parties than a top-of-the line caterer, they admitted that being practically the only women at the event was a new experience.
As a reminder of the 2018 La Fiesta fundraising theme of Spain — “Exploring Colores de Espana” — the guests were presented with delicious cookies decorated like Spanish tiles as favors.
From this point, the mothers and their daughters will be having gowns made and preparing for a slew of parties leading up to the Saturday, June 9, black-tie gala at the Hilton Anatole benefiting Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Dallas, CARE, Connecting Point of Park Cities, Dallas Children’s Theater, The Elisa Project, Friends of the Highland Park Library, Friends of the University Park Public Library, Habitat for Humanity/HPHS Campus Chapter, Highland Park Education Foundation, Highland Park Literary Festival, HP Arts, HPHS Community Service Council, HPHS Counseling Department and Student Council, HPHS Student Emergency Fund, Moody Family YMCA in the Park Cities/HPHS Youth and Government Team and Park Cities Heritage House at Dallas Heritage Village.
