One of the fall season’s favorite outdoor fundraisers is Scottish Rite for Children’s Treasure Street. Since that first one in 1996 when Dee and Dodge Carter decided to host an event to raise funds for the Tuberous Sclerosis Complex Clinic at Scottish Rite for Children where their daughter Nicole Carter was a patient. Serving as honorary co-chairs were Annette and Harold Simmons. The fundraiser got the moniker Treasure Street because guests at that first event were “invited to bring a ‘treasure’ to be included in a small auction to raise funds for the hospital.”
Over the years that little treasure has grown to become the hospital’s signature fundraising event with more than 1,000 in attendances.
Thanks to auction items, five-star cuisine, live entertainment and a worthy cause, Treasure Street has provided more than $17M for the hospital’s patients.
This year’s Event Co-Chairs Karen and Chuck Cooperstein and Honorary Event Chair Nancy Lieberman have announced that the event will take place in the hospital’s Blue Crayon parking lot with live music, bites of some of Dallas’ tastiest cuisines, extravagant auction items, drinks and dancing on Thursday, September 28, starting at 6:30 p.m.
