It was my pleasure to emcee, along with my partner in crime, Larre Green, Metroport Meals on Wheel’s Fall Fashion Show and Shopping Bazaar Friday at the Marriott Solana.
Besides the great cause of raising money to feed senior citizens, executive director Mary King and Karen Malone were so wonderful with whom to work. About 150 people attended Friday’s luncheon and were treated to a great day of fun–all whileÂ raising funds forÂ MMOW’s programs.
The luncheon was very nice and the chicken delish, but can we talk about the clothes in the fashion show? Produced by Candy Miller andÂ Debbie Felps, the show was packed with great-looking fall fashions.Â I spied about five handbags that I needed to adopt, and State Rep. Vicki Truitt modeled the cutest white blouse. There were some really cute frocks, too, and then there were furs! The nice people at David Hunt Furs even allowed Larre and me to wear a couple on stage.
Star of the day, though, was Realtor Roxann Taylor, the first-ever recipient of MMOW’s LINK Award for her support of community causes. Mary King presented her award, but there was another surprise. Celebrated artist Trish Biddle (www.trishbiddle.com), who you might remember as the Westlake woman who has been named the official artist of both the Kentucky Derby and The Westminster Dog Show, donated a huge original painting to Roxann.
Roxann told me it’s not going to her home, but her Southlake office. Anyone wanting to get a look can swing by to see this great piece of art.
