Since pandemic cases have calmed down, DFW International, Love Field and private airfields have been in hyper drive with folks wanting to get out of town. But for those who aren’t too crazy over packing luggage and schlepping to other parts, the Friends of Wilkinson Center cuties are bringing Taos to North Texas for the 7th Annual Spirit of Taos.
Co-Chairs Karrie Cato, Ida Gleaton and Lindsey Morris along with Honorary Co-Chair Holly Greef and Carlin and Charles Morris and Friends President Caitlin Hyatt are transforming Belo Mansion into a Taos-inspired evening competed with seated dinner, raffle, silent and live auctions, dancing and live entertainment.
And to add some spice to the evening, WFAA-TV sports anchor Dale “Mr. Unplugged” Hansen will serve as emcee and you just know he ain’t going to be ho-hum.
Presented by Reliant on Friday, October 15, the event’s proceeds will support Wilkinson Center’s 39-year mission to “transform the lives of Dallas families by providing pathways to self-sufficiency with dignity and respect.”
This year’s Spirit is especially important to funding Wilkinson’s mission since last year’s Spirit had to be canceled due to the onslaught of the pandemic.
According to Wilkinson Center Executive Director Anne Reeder, “Wilkinson Center offers hope to the community we serve, through our food and emergency services, support of vulnerable seniors, education and training for adults seeking a better life. We are so thrilled that we are able to gather this year and hope the community will join us!”
Sponsorship and tickets are available now and here.
