Dallas’ Lifestyle Queen Details How Giving Back Changed Her Life: A Junior Forum Moment at the Mansion
What: Dallas Junior Forum 40th Anniversary Spring Lunch
Where: Belo mansion and pavilion
PC moment: Philanthropists gathered in the lavish ballroom of the Belo Mansion to celebrate the 40th year of service at the Dallas Junior Forum in North Texas. While guests mumbled (think pink champagne soup), keynote speakers and lifestyle expert / entrepreneur Kimberly Schlegel Whitman gave an engaging speech entitled “Adventures in Philanthropy: How Trying to Give Back Changed My Life and Career.”
The silent auction pulled many bids from the benevolent heap and raised funds to raise funds for the many nonprofit organizations supported by the Dallas Junior Forum, including the Dallas Children’s Advocacy Center, Interfaith Family Services, and the Juliette Fowler Communities. Since its inception in 1977, the Dallas Junior Forum has donated more than $ 1 million to nonprofits across town, making it one of the most charitable forces to be reckoned with.
Philanthropic Adventurers: President of the Dallas Junior Forum, Mary Lou Fleming;; Lunch chair, Mary Cartwright;; and mistress of ceremonies, Jane McGarry.
