On Friday, May 10, host committee members of MEET! East Dallas proudly donated $1500 to East Lake Pet Orphanage, proceeds from their networking event held in February. ELPO is a non-profit organization dedicated to rehabilitating and finding homes for stray animals such as Luigi, a dog that was recently in their care. Luigi’s story began on I-35, one of the busiest, if not THE busiest, highways in Dallas. It was during rush hour traffic that the Dallas Police Department received a call about a stray dog that was on the road as cars whizzed by. When officers arrived on the scene, they discovered that Luigi had been struck by a car and was laying in the road. Uncertain of his condition, officers stepped in to move him from the road and in the process, narrowly avoided being struck by a car that struck their cruiser from behind. Luigi’s examination revealed that he suffered from a concussion, lacerations, and a fractured pelvis. Donations helped Luigi receive the care he needed to recover and be placed in a forever home.

MEET! East Dallas is an annual business networking and community awareness event hosted by East Dallas Networking, Greater East Dallas Chamber of Commerce, Lakewood Women in Business and The Point & Pavilion at CC Young.

Featured speakers Susan Packard and Laura Tucker.

Two powerhouse women were in town for the 3rd Annual 4word Gala Divine Design 2019 Celebrating Women Empowerment held on March 2 at the Renaissance Dallas Hotel.  Susan Packard, Co-Founder and former COO of HGTV and Laura Tucker, Lead Designer for Joanna and Chip Gaines’ Magnolia Homes, are strong models of inspiration, drive, and energy in their career eminence. Both of these influential women shared how their faith and passion empowered them to shape the successful careers achieved.

 

The gala brought together over 400 women and men from throughout the nation. 4word differs from many organizations in that it is a digital community with Local Groups in 24 cities. Social networking sites, blogs and podcasts provide inspiration for their members, making it assessible for anyone at any location. The Local Groups have regular networking meetups for face to face time.

 

Over 100 C-Level 4word women in were attendance, and the Local Groups comprised over 90 women who attended from Austin, Chicago, Colorado Springs, Dallas, Detroit, Houston, New York City, Nashville, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Portland, and Southlake.

 

In total, the 4word Divine Design Gala had a 30% increase in net income over last year's Gala, all thanks to the generosity of the 400+ attendees who joined to celebrate what God is doing for women in the workplace around the world through 4word.

The silent and live auction and donations, plus other revenue, helped raise more than $70,000. With the silent auction being offered online for the first time in the Gala’s history, women from all over were able to still be part of the festivities (even if they couldn't make it to Dallas), with winners reported from locations like Charlotte, Austin, and even Mexico.

Honorary Chairs for the event were Ka Cotter, Dorthy Miller Shore, and Dr. Kathryn Waldrep. 

The gala was chaired by Debbie Dillon. Diane Paddison is the founder of 4word.

Proceeds from the gala will benefit 4word, a Faith-Based Community that Empowers & Inspires Women in the Workplace through Personal Connection and 4word’s Mentoring Program to:

  • Elevate Leadership and Match Calling and Gifts to Work (Professional)
  • Build and Strengthen Relationships (Relational)
  • Integrate Faith into all aspects of Life (Spiritual)
  • Develop Inner Confidence and Discover Purpose

The 4word Mentoring Program has paired 400 women whose lives have been transformed both as a mentor and a mentee. The deadline for applications for the summer mentoring program is May 3. Details are available on the website www.4wordwomen.org.

2019 Debutantes and Honor Guard - Photo by James French

The Dallas Symphony Orchestra League introduced the 2019 debutantes at the 33rd Presentation Ball on February 9, 2019 at the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center. 

The Honorary Chairs for the 2019 Presentation Ball were Ann and Gabriel Barbier-Mueller, longtime supporters of the DSO and the Dallas community. Their daughter Niña was a debutante and their sons Alexis and Oliver have served as Honor Guards. 

The Presentation Ball Chair was Carla Leffert and DSOL President is Lisa Loy Laughlin. Both knew well what to expect during the debutante season well. Carla has had two daughters make their debut and Lisa is a past Presentation Ball Chair. 

There were several second-generation debutantes making their debut. Hattie Newton’s mother Mary Casey and aunt Donna Casey were debutantes for the inaugural ball held in 1987 and her aunt Lisa Casey was presented a few years later. Megan Molthan’s mother Heather and her aunt Wendy are both former debutantes.   

Three generations of the McCullough family have participated with the Honor Guard.  Michael McCullough, Sr. was the founder of the Honor Guard in 1987. His son Michael Jr. is a past Honor Guard and this year, his grandson Mac McCullough served as an Honor Guard.

Houston native Elizabeth Moore made her debut at the Dallas Symphony Orchestra League’s Presentation Ball. Her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Harvin Cooper Moore IV of Houston, will be in Dallas for the debut, but the family’s ties to the Dallas Symphony Orchestra date back to 1974.

At that time, Elizabeth’s grandfather Lloyd Haldeman was hired as the DSO manager when the Dallas Symphony Orchestra was rebuilding itself. He launched massive fund drives, persuaded civic leadership to take more active involvement in the orchestra’s future introduced new concert series including summer pops, won a 52-week contract for the musicians, hired new players, lengthened the subscription series, and engaged Eduardo Mata as principal conductor and Kurt Masur as principal guest conductor. With that foundation laid, Haldeman left a lasting legacy. The Dallas Symphony Orchestra has since become one of the top orchestras in the nation.  

“The Dallas Symphony brought my family to Texas, and played a pivotal role in our lives,” said Janet Haldeman Moore (a graduate of Greenhill School). “Elizabeth’s presentation honors her grandfather’s legacy and continues our family’s meaningful connection to this stellar symphony.”  

Although not able to be active with the Dallas Symphony, Janet serves as a Trustee of the Houston Symphony and was one of the founding board members of Houston’s River Oaks Chamber Orchestra. 

The 2019 debutantes are:

Maddie Basso, Katy Callewart, Carly Cooper, Savannah Crow, Avery Davis, Katherine Fraser, Kathleen Gamso, Kate Gioldasis, Natalie Groves, Gracie Hunt, Mary Margaret Jaynes, Alix Lippincott, Georgia McGill, Elizabeth McIlyar, Megan Molthan, Elizabeth Moore, Caroline Mulligan, Coco Murchison, Hattie Newton, Mindy Osler, Cassandra Polley, Elizabeth Reid, Anna Robertson, Lily Schiff, Lauren Schnitzer, Livy Scott, Nicole Smith, Emily Stone, Samantha Sullivan, Sally Wade, Ava Wall, and Whitney Wheeler. 

The Presentation Ball, which was first held in 1987, is the largest fundraiser for the DSOL. Over $11 million has been raised for the Dallas Symphony Orchestra through the annual event, which was created with the vision of long-time League member Tincy Miller, who chaired the first ball. 

Founded in 1946, the mission of the DSOL is to support the Dallas Symphony Orchestra through service, education and fundraising activities. Since 1998 the League has contributed over $16 million in support of the Dallas Symphony Association’s Community Outreach and Education programs, which help bring the wonder of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra to thousands of youths and adults in the Dallas Metroplex.
