The kick-off for the 7th Annual Bonne Santé Wine and Food Showcase presented by The Westin Galleria and benefiting the National Kidney Foundation was held at Privé Westin Galleria Dallas recently.
         

Neil Foote, President of the National Kidney Foundation North Texas, welcomed the crowd, thanking Greg White, General Manager of The Westin Galleria for their presenting sponsorship and for partnering with the National Kidney Foundation as host for Bonne Santé for the last six years and again in 2017. He expressed heartfelt thanks to Founding Chefs Scott Gottlich, The Second Floor and 18th & Vine and William Koval, Lakewood Country Club for their continued support, untiring efforts and generosity since the first Bonne Santé in 2010.        Gina Gottlich is sommelier.
       

Special recognition went to Betty Osborne, whose late husband, Burl, is the namesake for the Burl Osborne Awareness Award, which is given each year at the Bonne Santé event. The Burl Osborne Awareness Award recognizes individuals and organizations which have helped advance awareness and understanding of kidneys, kidney disease, and organ donation.
       

This year the National Kidney Foundation is honored to celebrate the Burl Osborne Awareness Award corporate recipient Davita RX for their outstanding support of the National Kidney Foundation. They have raised over $30,000 in support of the Kidney walk. The Individual Award recipients and dear friends are Danny Kolzow and Graham McMillan. Graham made a video of the day he let his friend Danny know that he would donate his kidney for transplant. That moving video has been viewed by over 871,000 on Facebook alone. Here is the link: https://www.facebook.com/inspiremoreofficial/videos/1061437543948330/    
         

The Gift of Life Award will be presented to McKamy Tiner. This award is given to individuals who have been involved in the ultimate “gift of life” – a lifesaving transplant.  At the time she was 27, McKamy was one of the youngest kidney donors in the United States, donating a kidney to her long time and dear family friend, Ian Arena, who was in dire need. He is a healthy survivor today.

For some, the holiday season is not a time to rejoice, but a period met with hardship, heartache and disappointment.  Sponsors, underwriters, volunteers and supporters of Christmas in the Park work every year to make Christmas dreams come true for these families. Everyone is welcome to join in!

Wright Foundation, a 501c3 nonprofit organization providing support and stability to inner-city underprivileged children and less fortunate families in the South Dallas/Fair Park community, Christmas in the Park is perhaps Dallas’ largest holiday charity event, which has grown from serving less than 200 underprivileged kids in 1998 to over 44,000 residents in 2016.
         

Joining S. M. Wright II, co-founder, President and CEO of the S. M. Wright Foundation will be his mother, co-founder Debra D. Wright, his brother, co-founder The Reverend Calvin Wright, board chair Cullum Clark and his wife Nita with their children, along with many of Dallas’ business and community leaders.
         

2016 co-chairs are Allie Beth and Pierce Allman, Gina and Ken Betts, Julie and Darren Blanton, Deni and Kevin Bryant, Doug Deason, Ola and Randall Fojtasek, Heather and Todd Furniss, Suzanne Bock Grishman and Michael Grishman, Brooke and Jeff Jackson, Natalie and Mike McGuire, Lisa and Jeff Rachor, Michael Watson, Carrie and John Willding.         

Host committee members are Lori and John Alschuler, Susan and Ernest Beecherl, Kathy and Harlan Crow, Michelle and Jason Fraser, Suzanne Bock Grishman and Michael Grishman, Tony Hartl, Mack Hick, Luann Hicks, Chris Lalonde, Larry North.
         

All of these supporters and their families have long-time traditions of volunteering to disburse toys, food, other necessities and help with managing the event. Over 1,800 volunteers will join to share the holiday season with their families.
           

The foundation also provides hunger relief, educational support, health, social service assistance and economic empowerment. The foundation’s goals are to move these families from a position of dependency to self-sufficiency and to restore stability to families and the community.

History of Roque: 
Roque was created in 1899, by Samuel Crosby who suggested that the “c” and “t” of croquet be dropped and the American version of croquet was created. The game is played on a hard court with boundary walls and arches that are permanently placed. The mallet that is use has one soft rubber end and one hard wood or metal end. The game also became more scientific and is perceived as the most scientific outdoor game. The game grew in popular with the help of courts being built across the nation during the Great Depression under the Public Works Projects.  Roque was even included in the 1904 Summer Olympic, in place of croquet. The game slow lost popularity and by 2004, the American Roque and Croquet Association canceled tournaments. Today, there are only four known active Roque courts in the nation.

History: In 1909, the green space now known as Lee Park was purchased by the City of Dallas and is the city’s second oldest park.  The Lee Park & Arlington Hall Conservancy was formed in 1998, modeled after the Central Park Conservancy in New York.  The purpose was to allow this non profit to raise funds and oversee the restoration of Arlington Hall and the elevation of landscaping and care of Lee Park.

Blake Lewis, Chairman of the Board, CISDR, Maggie Cooke Kipp, Soirée chair; Dr. Judith Allen-Bazemore, President and CEO, CISDR

Communities In Schools of the Dallas Region provided on-campus support to over 9,000 students in 2015-2016 school year!

 

The entrance to the Texas Discovery Gardens was covered in a beautiful shaded allée of trees welcoming the crowd to the CIS Soirée for Students benefiting Communities In Schools of the Dallas Region (CISDR) as they recently celebrated their 30th school year.
         

Dr. Judith Allen-Bazemore, President and CEO of CISDR welcomed guests with Blake D. Lewis III, Chairman of the Board, Soirée Chair Maggie Cooke Kipp, Honorary Chairs Katherine and Key Coker and CISDR Chief Philanthropy Officer, Lisa Loy Laughlin.
         

Patrons strolled and bid in the fabulous silent auction chaired by Sara and Bill Woodall while enjoying sumptuous hors d’oeuvres and a refreshing specialty cocktail, the Garden Mule, served in chilled copper cups. One insider said it was just like a Moscow mule, but with more herbs – certainly appropriate for this garden-themed event.
         

Spotted in the crowd catching up on news from over the summer were Anne Lindsey and Davin Hunt, chairs of the Line Drive Luncheon last spring; Caroline Rose Hunt, the 2016 Dream Achiever award honoree, presenting sponsor Alon USA, Children’s Challenge sponsor BBVA Compass, Ben Bazemore, Brice Beaird, past chairs Cynthia Beaird (2015) and Elsa Norwood (2009); Brenda and Clay Cockerell and more.
         

The program began with introductions by emcee, Mike Jones. Blake Lewis thanked the sponsors named above, as well as Malachite Sponsors DFW NCDA and Lewis Public Relations, Chrysalis Sponsors Serena Simmons Connelly and Turner Construction, and Benefactors Cherrise and Fredrik Cederqvist. Media Sponsors include PaperCity and Park Cities News and the Waters Family.
         

Blake gave special thanks to Katherine and Key Coker, relating a brief history of their business and numerous civic involvements, having most recently co-chaired the 2015 Dallas Symphony Orchestra gala and presented them with a gift of appreciation, followed by a rousing ovation.
         

Introducing Maggie Cooke Kipp, Blake praised her work as a community volunteer, hard-working CFO and mother of two daughters, also presenting her with a lovely gift while she received cheers and applause from the crowd.
         

Maggie talked about feeling very strongly about the importance of education, especially in the formative years, saying, “Many of the students CISDR works with don’t have anywhere else to turn, but CISDR has staff right on campus to be their most valuable allies,” mentioning the metaphor of CISDR being the chrysalis from which the students emerge as soaring butterflies. She urged everyone to take the opportunity to support and grow future leaders, citing that in the last 30 years, CISDR has touched the lives of nearly 250,000 students from kindergarten through graduation, surrounding them with a community of support and empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life.
         

Sara and Bill Woodall were invited on stage as Maggie related Bill’s military service in the Marine Corps, including service in Afghanistan. Both Sara and Bill work in Dallas and are very involved in the community. Maggie also revealed that Bill is a former student of Lisa Laughlin as they were brought on stage to receive a lovely gift and round of applause.

The invocation by E. Philip Bush, a CISDR board member, was followed by a hearty and delightful dinner, sweets for dessert and as a special treat, cupcakes as favors.
         

A moving video featured CISDR students sharing their heartfelt personal stories of struggles in family and school and achieving ultimate success, involving support from CISDR  not only in education, but also with social and behavioral intervention services.

Dr. Allen-Bazemore reminded everyone that CISDR serves families free of charge and that every penny counts. The average cost of serving one child is $500. Supporting CISDR and everything the organization accomplishes has a ripple effect, touching more lives than anyone will ever know.
         

A call for donations brought an enthusiastic response, followed by an energetic live auction of items such as a violin bass guitar signed by Sir Paul McCartney, a signed photo of Olympian gold medal winner Michael Phelps, a Caliber 22” Kamado High End Stainless Steel Grill, tickets to Hamilton in New York City and more.
         

Lisa Laughlin closed the program thanking everyone for their generosity as the DJ began his set with two popular songs, “Come Together” and “Thank You For Being a Friend.”
         

CISDR is a a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, founded in 1985 to address the growing number of high school dropouts in Dallas and surrounding areas. CISDR operates in 70 schools in nine school districts in Dallas, Collin, and Ellis counties, with over 78% of those students living in poverty and deemed “at-risk” of future failure by the Texas Education Agency. Among other results this school year, 96% stayed in school and CISDR high school intervention resulted in a 95% graduation rate.  
         

As the premier evidence/research based experts in K thru 12 academic, social and behavioral intervention services, CISDR’s professional staff provides direct services as well as connect community resources into schools in a coordinated, caring and cost-effective way.
