Despite the ongoing construction of mansions along Preston Hollow’s winding roads, nothing was going to prevent guests from attending the 2022 Callier Cares Luncheon Patron Party on Wednesday, March 23, at Jennifer and David Lancashire’s mansion.
While the Lancashires hadn’t had any personal involvement with the beneficiary Callier Center for Communication Disorders, they had been the next-door neighbors of Luncheon Chair Stacey Walker. When they learned of her involvement, they didn’t hesitate to volunteer their home for the invite-only party.
In addition to chairing the fundraiser on Monday, April 11, Stacey has another date on the calendar — Thursday, April 14. It seems that over the recent spring break, she took to the mountains with the kids. Unfortunately, a nasty spill on the Snowmass slopes resulted in a wrecked meniscus. Since she put off surgery to repair the damage until after the luncheon, she disguised the support brace at the patron party by wearing a long black shirt and large sneakers.
Joining guests like Foundation for the Callier Center President Beth Thoele, Callier Center Executive Director Dr. Angela Shoup, Kay Sim, Susan Farris, Suzy Gekiere, Lee Jackson and Candy Streit were the Ruth and Ken Altshuler Callier Care Award recipients The Bruton family including Carol Bruton and Karol and Doug Bruton.
In addition to presenting the Brutons with the award, parents Maggie and Colt Braden will will tell how Callier “changed our family’s life.”
According to Stacey, tickets for the fundraiser at the Dallas Country Club on Monday, April 11, are going quickly but can still be snapped up here.
