The Les Femmes du Monde ladies like Virginia Chandler Dykes, Patricia Crocker, Pat Pace and Eleanor Casey celebrated the holidays with wine at Cynthia Beaird’s Old Highland Park home on Tuesday, December 11. And they had a lot to celebrate.
Not only had the year been filled with meetings, luncheons and teas, its Woman of the Year dinner honoring Center for BrainHealth Founder/Chief Director Dr. Sandi Chapman at the Dallas Country Club in October hit a home run.
In addition to Sandi, Les Femmes President Venise Stuart and Dinner Co-Chairs Mari Epperson and Melissa Lewis arranged to have Overseas Private Investment Corporation President/CEO native son Ray Washburne as the keynote speaker.
They’re still counting the monies, but the checks will be going to Children’s Medical Center’s Child Life Program and the World Affairs Council of Dallas/Fort Worth’s Global Young Leaders Program.
