The gods were smiling on The Senior Source’s Spirit of Generations patron party on the evening of Thursday, October 11. While other weekend fundraisers were rushing around trying to shore up for the predicted wet, chilly weather, the weather on this night was just this side of incredible.
As the 70 or so guests like Spirit of Generations Chair Beth Thoele, Joyce and Linus Wright, Carol Huckin, Martha and Doug Hawthorne, Brenda and Bob White, Keith Cargill, Karen Shuford and Lynn McBee found their comfort spot at Regen and Jeff Fearon’s marvelous digs, the majority took full advantage of the grounds as the sun was setting.
Alas, so did one errant bug, who smacked into Pam Perella’s right eye just before a photo was taken of Pam, Connie O’Neill and Brent Christopher. Pam recovered. The bug didn’t.
Speaking of Brent, it had been a long day. He had started the day at The Rustic for the What’s Up, Doc? Discussion, where experts updated the crowd on pediatric care.
At one side of the terrace Rich Enthoven was talking with Pete Kline, who was waiting for wife Caren Kline to arrive.
Inside, Brad Cheves was providing an update on his sons — Conner Cheves was at SMU and Keaton Cheves was at Shelton and Kyle Cheves was at Pepperdine’s School of Law following in the footsteps of his dad, who earned his juris doctor degree there.
At the far end of the terrace was a family portrait of The Senior Source’s Spirit of Generations’ co-honoree Sandra Estess with son Blake Estess and daughter Elizabeth Estess Hughes with her husband Robert Hughes. Like Brent, Sandra had had a long day, too. She’d been at The Dallas Opera’s First Sight luncheon and fashion show at the Winspear along with First Sight/First Night Honorary Co-Chair Marnie Wildenthal.
