Progressive dinner spread across Rolls-Royce, Bentley, Maserati 
and McLaren showrooms benefits Community Partners of Dallas

Park Place Premier Collection recently held its Holiday Soiree with a progressive dinner stretching across all four luxury showrooms at the Lemmon Avenue location. 

Guests enjoyed a range of treats that tantalized their senses:

  • TK Culinary’s chef Sean Frye offered sweet and spicy Gulf oysters on the half shell with a dash of orange-sweet chili granita to complement the exciting 2014 McLaren Spider,
  • Stanley Korshak models flanked the new 2014 Maserati Ghibli as guests gnoshed on charred tomato bisque, bruschetta and Italian inspired bites by Warwick Melrose Hotel executive chef Mike Pacheco,
  • Wolfgang Puck Catering presented an amazing winter truffle chicken pot pie to warm guests up as models showcased beautiful baubles from Bachendorf's, surrounded by the breathtaking 2014 Rolls-Royce Wraith,
  • The new 2014 Bentley Flying Spur was paired with cappucinos and decadent delights from Chocolate Secrets, plus an exclusive look at the new line of Bentley handbags that ranged from $280 for an iPhone case to $7700 for a satchel-sized handbag.

Guests were asked to bring a new, unwrapped toy to benefit Community Partners of Dallas, a nonprofit organization dedicated to ensuring safety and restoring dignity and hope to abused and neglected children by providing resources and support to the caseworkers of Dallas County Child Protective Services. Community Partners of Dallas served more than 20,000 children last year.

Merrill Lynch Wealth Management was the event co-sponsor. Christopher Martin Gallery donated 25% of all art sales for the evening to the Community Partners of Dallas. Other partners included Luxe Interiors & Design; Posh Floral Designs, Roche Bobois Paris; Chic Coffee Events; Andrews Distributing; and Pernod Ricard, showcasing Absolut Elyx Vodka, G.H. Mumm Blanc de Blancs Champagne, Avion Tequila, Glenlivet Single Malt Scotch Whiskey and Kahlua Liquer.
