Tuesday’s notice from 2022 Crystal Charity Ball Chair Susan Farris and 2022 CCB Fashion Show Chair Jennifer Dix about the event’s developments flourishing with “Italian flavor” was dismissed as merely in keeping with the Fashion Show’s featured designer, Dolce And Gabbana.
But tonight proved all that was simply an Easter egg of what Susan had in mind for the theme of the 2022 Crystal Charity Ball on Saturday, December 3.
Tonight at 2020 CCB Chair Tucker Enthoven’s Mediterranean estate in Preston Hollow, Susan did a brava theme announcement of “Splendido Italiano” presented by Tolleson Wealth Management, complete with Dallas Opera tenor Zach Hess and pianist Thiago Nascimento, to the delight of the crowd spilling out onto the Enthovens’ terrace.
And as any Italian would demand, the other senses were satisfied as guests moved into the dining room, where Cassandra of Art 2 Catering had set out an Italian buffet.
But Susan wasn’t finished with the Italian connection at the buffet. As guests left, they received Paciugo Gelato and a photo opp with Vespas sans Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck.
And like any Italian offering, there’s so much more to feast and to enjoy the good life. Stay tuned. In the days ahead there will be more yummy details and photos.
