Room To Grow Co-Chairs Kristi Bare and Nancy Gopez bit the fundraising bullet earlier today. Instead of holding the Dec My Room luncheon Wednesday at NorthPark Neiman Marcus Courtyard, they’re moving the event indoors. The reason? Some weather predictors are claiming that Wednesday could be a repeat of Saturday’s weather temper tantrum.
But even if the heavy duty stuff doesn’t hit the area until late afternoon, the preceding gusty winds wouldn’t exactly be flattering for silk dresses. And who wants to have their hair blowing in the wind?
So the game plan is still on with valets welcoming guests at the lower level entrance between NM and Tiffany; registration and champagne reception from 11 to 12; luncheon and Neiman’s fashion presentation moderated by NorthPark Luxury Ambassador Kimberly Schlegel Whitman and Meredith Land at high noon; and after-party of bubbles and desserts on Neiman’s second level.
The only change will be the location of the reception and luncheon. Both will take place in NorthPark’s South Court, where Jonathan Borofsky’s “Five Hammering Men” will be towering among the guests.
