While North Texas Giving Day was heading to the final hours of its 2021 fundraiser on Thursday, September 23, the 2021 Chick Lit Luncheon patrons were getting revved up for the next day’s fundraiser for Community Partners of Dallas.
As luxury vehicles were in the conga line at Korshak’s valet, Korshak owner Crawford Brock was manning the door and greeting guests like Presenting Co-Sponsor Lara Tafel, Pam Busbee, Shelle Sills, DeeDee Lee, Rhonda Sargent Chambers, and Knoxie Edmonson. He was glad to be back at the store. During the pandemic, Crawford has spent 11 weeks getting to know his newest acquisition — Jack Nicklaus’ yacht. He admitted that after selling his “Tie Breaker,” he thought his boat ownership days were dry docked. But being so grounded during the stay-in-place, he started getting homesick for the deep blue sea. However, the pickings were slim. That is until his broker called with news of Nicklaus’ ship getting ready to be listed. That’s all it took to get Crawford back scuba diving and spear fishing.
Speaking of fishing, 2021 Chick Lit Luncheon Chair Claire Emanuelson reported that husband Dwight Emanuelson was returning home after fly fishing in Wyoming. He had been due back October 1, but came back early to celebrate the Emanuelsons’ 34th anniversary and to support Claire’s appearance on stage the next day.
Christie Carter and Angie Kadesky had had just enough time to change shoes after attending the Dallas Woman’s Club luncheon.
All too soon the party ended because the ladies had a big day ahead of them — the first major in-person gathering in months … no, make that in more than a year.
