As if it wasn’t enough to hold the Crystal Charity Ball gala for more than a thousand philanthropic types and closing a record-breaking year of fundraising for Dallas children’s charities, 2019 CCB Chair Pat McEvoy hosted a tea in her home for the CCB committee members like Su-Su Meyer, Kristina Whitcomb, Tucker Enthoven, Di Johnston, Stacey Walker, Christie Carter, Mary Parker, Susan Farris, Prissy Gravely, Suzy Gekiere, Pam Perella, Cheryl Joyner, Susan Glassmoyer, Angie Kadesky and Cynthia Mitchell to thank them less than ten days later.
The only thing missing on Monday, December 16, was tea and cucumber sandwiches. Instead it was sparkling water, white wine and champagne plus a dining room table filled with Christmas cookies and all types of yummies by Cassandra. One of the first to plate up was Carole Bruton. Interestingly, the gathering point for the party turned out to be around the Christmas tree at the base of the winding stairway.
And it also turned out to be a birthday celebration for 2014 CCB Chair Robyn Conlon (December 15) and Gregory Dunbar (December 16)… Carol Seay was heading for Portland to celebrate Christmas with family… 2018 CCB Chair Claire Emanuelson claimed she was going to get a puppy in the year to come. She had relied on being a granddog mama and a neighbor dog mama for a cross-the-street Catahoula Harlow that belonged to Niven Morgan and Shelby Wagner.
2019 CCB First Husband Charles McEvoy laughed as he passed the room full of committee members, CCB staffers and friends and claimed that the year had been a breeze.
