Jimmy Westcott will serve as Honorary Chair
Dallas Symphony Orchestra League
8th Annual Fashion Notes Designer Award Luncheon and Style Show
Community philanthropist Jimmy Westcott will serve as Honorary Chair for the Dallas Symphony Orchestra League 8th Annual Fashion Notes Design Award and Style Show. The event co-chairs are good friends Kameron Westcott and Samantha Wortley. This will be a family affair since Kameron is married to Jimmy’s son, Court Wescott, which makes Jimmy her mother-in-law. The fundraiser will be held on Thursday, October 21, at Fairmont Dallas.
“So thankful my mother in law and best friend Jimmy Westcott will be serving as our honorary chair, said Kameron. “Jimmy is known for her enthusiasm for life and for her dedication to serving others. Jimmy’s advocacy skills and numerous leadership roles in the community will help us make a difference.”
As a community volunteer and philanthropist, Honorary Chair Jimmy Westcott has tried to give hope and help to underserved women and children. She has served on many boards including the United Way where she chaired the Alexis de Touqueville award dinner, and the Dallas Symphony chairing a gala featuring YO YO Ma. She is a former chairman of the Dallas Children's Advocacy Center Board and was the first women chair of the Greater Dallas Boys and Girls Clubs, where she remains a trustee. Appointed to the Texas Commission for Women, she served as Chair of the Domestic Violence Committee. Other events she has chaired include the Genesis Women's Shelter luncheon, Stage Fest and the Salvation Army's fashion show and the Susan G. Komen anniversary luncheon. One of her current passions is Orphan Outreach, a ministry which serves orphans all over the world. She founded their annual Children's Hope Dinner receiving the Children's Hope award in 2018. She remains on the foundation boards of UT Southwestern and Children's Medical Center and is proud to support first responders as a member of the North Texas Crime Commission. Her hope for the symphony luncheon is that a new generation will continue to embrace the importance of music in the lives of all children.
