Entrepreneur/educator/philanthropist Bobby B. Lyle is going to have to get a carpenter over to his home. His trophy room is in need of expansion. Move over SMU Distinguished Alumni Award, Robert S. Folsom Leadership Award, J. Erik Jonsson Ethics Award and the others.
It was just announced that Bobby will receive the 90th Annual Linz Award on Wednesday, April 17, at the Hilton Anatole.
For the past 90 years, the prestigious award has recognized “individuals whose community and humanitarian efforts have created the greatest benefit to Dallas during the last decade.”
Presented by The Dallas Morning News, Communities Foundation of Texas and The Dallas Foundation, this year’s event will not be a fundraiser for the Junior League of Dallas.
As for attending the luncheon, the Linz Award website presently reports that “Luncheon tickets will go on sale in December 2018. Stay tuned!”
Perhaps with Bobby being the recipient, it’s already sold out?
