Fresh off the heels of its 30th anniversary celebration, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Saint Valentine’s Day Luncheon & Fashion Show is unveiling details of what’s in store for 2015. The Luncheon, recently named “Dallas’ Most Beloved Charity Luncheon” by Culture Map, is proud to announce an exciting new partnership as it kicks off its next 30 show-stopping years in Dallas.

The Society is pleased to announce that Lisa Singleton, an active community volunteer, has agreed to serve as Chair of the 2015 Saint Valentine’s Day Luncheon. Her first order of business: to set a date and announce the theme. Mark Tuesday, February 17, 2015 on your calendar for a “Fashionably Late” Valentine’s Day celebration.

Singleton, a director at Brunswick Group, an international communications consultancy firm, is no stranger to raising money and awareness for some of Dallas’ most treasured non-profits. She currently serves on the Board of Directors of North Texas Public Broadcasting, the Advisory Board for the SMU School of Communications, the Community Partners of Dallas Partnership Board and is a member of the Junior Group, Marianne Scruggs Garden Club. She most recently chaired the 2013 Chick Lit Luncheon benefitting Community Partners of Dallas and has also served on the Boards of the Dallas Women’s Foundation and the Dallas Film Society.

“I am truly honored to have been asked to serve in this important capacity,” Singleton said. “All of the money raised at this event goes toward cutting-edge blood cancer research and support programs for North Texas patients and their families. While we have a terrific time raising much needed funds, we also understand the gravity and importance of providing hope and support to those who have been impacted by blood cancers. I am happy to be able to play a small part in helping to raise awareness and dollars to support LLS.”

LLS is also pleased to announce that, new this year, Highland Park Village will be the sponsor of the fashion show component of the Saint Valentine’s Day Luncheon & Fashion Show.  The dynamic variety of contemporary and luxury boutiques at Highland Park Village will create an inspired show under the guidance of Producer Jan Strimple. 

“We’re thrilled to be a formal part of this wonderful annual event,” Chief Marketing Officer of Highland Park Village Kersten Rettig said. “We are honored to support this cause and happy to have our long-time friend Jan Strimple showcase the exceptional variety of our tenants’ fashions in her production.  We enjoy connecting with our current and future guests in this type of setting and greatly look forward to the 2015 Saint Valentine’s Day Luncheon & Fashion Show.”

What won’t change in 2015 are the elements that attendees know and love. The Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center will play host, local blood cancer survivors and supporters will be honored with the Lynda Adleta Heart of Gold Award and the Spirit of Tom Landry award and FOX4’s Clarice Tinsley will return as the gracious host of the afternoon.
