In case your postal carrier has been a little slow delivering your mail, that may be the reason that you haven’t received your letter about the Callier Cares Luncheon 2022. It was just before Winter Storm Landon landing in North Texas that a group of folks settled down to personalize the letters with personal notes.
Due to COVID concerns, the first location at Luncheon Chair Stacey Walker’s new home’s dining room table had to be replaced due to a need for social distancing for the volunteer signers, like Foundation for Callier Center President Beth Thoele, former President Tricia George, Callier Family Care Campaign Co-Chairs Anne McPherson and Stacey’s mom Kay Sim. Luckily, Callier Center Board VP Pam Busbee had just the place — the Crestpark conference room. In addition to setting out quite a spread of sweets and sandwiches, Pam also introduced the newest member of her family — Rosie, a four-month-old Shih Tzu.
As for the letters, they reveal that the Callier Center for Communication Disorder fundraiser would be taking place at the Dallas Country Club on Monday, April 11, with Kathleen and Richard Neely and Laura and Robert Neely serving as honorary co-chairs. This year’s Ruth and Ken Altshuler Callier Care Award would be presented to The Bruton Family in appreciation for the generous gift from the David Bruton Jr. Charitable Trust. It was in 1982 that the Bruton family established the David Bruton Jr. Endowed Lecture Series on Communication Disorders at Callier Center. Over the years, the series has “provided continuing education and furthered professional development for students, clinicians, researchers and healthcare practitioners.”
So why wait for your postal carrier to trudge through the ice and snow with your letter? Why not just go ahead and sign up as a luncheon underwriter here. Proceeds from the event will benefit patients in need through the Callier Care Fund.
