Alas, Luke Lange wasn’t able to attend the Blue Jean Ball raffle reveal party benefiting his Luke’s FastBreak on Thursday, August 1, at Park House. Seems Park House Dallas’ “house rules” prohibit anyone under the age of 18 from being in the Highland Park private club after 6 p.m.
Not to worry. Luke was probably still recovering from jet lag after the Langes’ family trip to South Africa.
Luckily, Luke’s folks, Tracy and Ben Lange, were jolly on the spot along with 2019 Blue Jean Ball Co-Chairs Gina Betts and Lisa Cooley, as well as guests like Pogir, Christie Carter, Jennifer and Richard Dix, Tiffany Divis, Lori Costillo, Ciara Cooley with Hunter Bigger and Becky and Kyle Bowen.
Halfway through the reception, the reveal of the two raffle items took place for the fundraiser at Eddie Deen’s on Saturday, September 21. For the ladies, there are 18kt white fold diamond fringe earrings donated by jewelry gem Sue Gragg and valued at $11,290. For the gents, the raffle prize will be a custom three-piece suit donated by Q Clothier and valued at $3,000.
To rev up ticket sales, Lisa reported that Sue and the Q team had kicked in a couple of incentives. The top ticket seller of the earrings will be rewarded with an 18kt white gold diamond cross pendant valued at $4,000. For the person selling the most chances for the suit, it will be a Q Clothier custom blazer valued at $1,000.
Gina and Lisa previewed some of the live auction items that included an array of stays in Argentina, Telluride, Lake Cypress Springs, Sea Island and Cabo San Lucas.
As soon as the announcements were done, raffle sales went into overdrive.
Chance tickets are going for $25 each/five for $100. And if you don’t know Lisa, Gina, the Langes or anyone on the committee, you can always go online and buy a couple dozen here.
