When the Friends of The Wilkinson Center first held The Spirit of Taos fundraiser at an outdoor venue across the way from White Rock, it seemed like the man in the moon was the guest of honor. This year, Mr. Moon is going to have to wave as guests arrive at The Hall on Dragon in the Design District on Saturday, September 14.
Event Chair Ellen Estee, along with Honorary Co-Chairs Missy Huber and Melanie and Jim Meyers, has arranged for the evening to include “cocktails, a seated dinner, a raffle and silent and live auctions.” To set the mood, the Special Edition Band will provide the boot-scootin’ sounds to fill the dance floor.
According to Ellen, “I am so thrilled to chair this year’s The Spirit of Taos in support of Wilkinson Center. I passionately believe in Wilkinson Center’s mission to transform the lives of Dallas families by providing pathways to self-sufficiency with dignity and respect. I hope the community will join me and our amazing honorary chairs to ensure a sell-out of our sixth annual event.”
As for the guests, they’ll provide the Taos look wearing cashmere toppers, felt hats with beaded bands, leather boots, blanket coats and turquoise accessories.
Sponsorships starting at $750 and tables of eight going for $2,000+ are available now as well as individual and patron tickets here.
