Paws Cause 2018 Holiday Party 

Hosted by Susie Swanson and Taylor Cousins at Ralph Lauren at Highland Park Village 
Wednesday, December 6, 2017
5 – 7 p.m.

Winter-red roses bloomed all around under the magnificent crystal chandelier gracing the entryway of the Ralph Lauren Boutique at Highland Park Village on Wednesday, December 6, where ladies and gentlemen gathered in the holiday spirit to celebrate Paws Cause and shop for friends and family, all to benefit the SPCA of Texas. Guests sipped wine and champagne and nibbled sweet and savory delicacies as they browsed. 

Sincere thanks to Susie Swanson and Taylor Cousins for hosting and to the Ralph Lauren store for welcoming the festive crowd and for donating a portion of the proceeds from the event's sales to the SPCA of Texas. Many of the guests were spotted walking out with armfuls of beribboned boxes and bags, admiring the gorgeous window display featuring the classic Ralph Lauren teddy bears dressed in holiday finery!

Debra Burns, Sr. Vice President for Development for the SPCA of Texas, thanked Ralph Lauren at Highland Park Village and Susie Swanson and Taylor Cousins for hosting the soirée. Burns also toasted to newlyweds Susie Swanson and Kevin Coffey on their recent marriage and presented them with a framed photo of the couple from last year’s event, engraved with “Furever Friends.”

Guests included Paws Cause 2018 Chair Kristen Greenberg, Paws Cause 2018 Co-Chair Melissa Vullo Bell, Paws Cause 2018 Bone Appetit Chair Giana dePaul, Andrea Alcorn, Karen Urie, Susie Swanson, Kevin Coffey, Gloria Snead, Penny Rivenbark Patton, Phyllis Comu, Mary Spencer, Nancy Latner, Sharon Fancher, Betsy Orton and SPCA of Texas Board Member Steve Atkinson.

Paws Cause will be held on Sunday, January 28, 2018 from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Jan Rees-Jones Animal Care Center at 2400 Lone Star Drive in West Dallas. Honorary chairs are Marsha Pendleton Gray & Richard Gray.
