After two years of the only trips being to the grocery store, North Texans are busting to travel to far-off places. And, of course, for many it’s not Padre Island or Choctaw Casino. Those folks want to experience unique spots and in luxurious style that will result in tales to share with family and friends for years to come. Whether it’s “venturing off the beaten path to see Michelangelo’s hidden drawings in Florence,” scuba diving in Viet Nam’s Ha Long Bay or admiring the wall paintings at Tiger’s Nest 10,200 feet above Paro Valley, these worldly types have passports crammed with stamps that would impress Phileas Fogg.
But when it comes to know-how and when to book their bucket list trip, North Texas’ own Jim Strong is the man who knows the best of the best in the world of luxury experiences. Why, one of his Strong Travels Services staff members has already been appointed as an Accredited Space Agent for Virgin Galactic.
Sponsored by Tolleson Wealth Management, the dinner is co-chaired by Ellen and Bob Dill.
According to Bob, who is on The Senior Source’s board of directors, “Ellen and I are passionate about the work The Senior Source does, and we are grateful for the support of Tolleson Wealth Management.”
Jim’s an old pro at sharing his finds. Why, in addition to two books — “Craving For Travel, Luxury Experiences For The Sophisticated Traveler” and “Craving For Travel, Celebrating Life’s Moments” — he wrote an Off-Broadway play called “Craving For Travel – The Off-Broadway Comedy.”
Ellen added, “There is nothing like getting the inside scoop on the best and most luxurious travel experiences from a travel insider like Jim Strong. We are looking forward to enjoying an evening with The Sage Society members and hearing about exotic destinations and hidden gems around the world.”
Now’s the time to contact Jentry Davis at 214.834.5700 about becoming a member of The Sage Society. Not only will be you be joining other philanthropists committed to improving the quality of life of older Dallasites, you’ll be supping with “strong” input on where your next getaway might be.
As Tolleson Wealth Management CEO Carter Tolleson explained, “With our country’s elderly population growing every day, it is important to educate community leaders on the challenges and concerns facing this particular group of Americans. Ultimately, we hope our involvement can help The Senior Source continue their great work in providing Dallas area seniors and their families with all of the vital resources they need to thrive.”
So, dust off that passport and pull out your luggage, because you’re going to need them in the days to come.
