As jammed as the corner of Hillcrest and Northwest Highway was on Wednesday, February 26, where a Tesla collided with a sedan during drive home traffic, the corner of Greenbrier and Turtle Creek Boulevard just blocks away looked pretty crowded, too.
Looking more like a corporate rush party for future executives, every place from the dining room to the living room was wall-to-wall men including Gary Alhadef, Mitch Clarke, Mark Withers and Veritex’s JJ Gomez and Mark Smith.
Actually it was for interested fellows to learn about how La Fiesta’s “Order of the Flag” helped the organization to raise funds for nonprofits like Boys and Girls Clubs, CARE Dallas, The Center for Integrative Counseling and Psychology, Connecting Point of Park Cities, Dallas Children’s Theater, The Elisa Project, Friends of the Highland Park Library, Friends of the University Park Public Library, Highland Park Education Foundation, HP Arts, Highland Park Literary Festival, HPHS Community Service Council, HPHS Student Emergency Fund, HPHS Counseling and Student Council, HPHS Youth and Government/Moody Family YMCA, and Park Cities Heritage House at Dallas Heritage Village.
It was all a part of the 2020 La Fiesta two-night get together for the gents on this night and ladies the next night. And while the partying may take a break for spring break, the momentum starts building in May for the big fundraiser on Saturday, June 6, at the Hilton Anatole.
