Vine & Dine Dinner and Auction

Honorary Chairmen Debbie and Jim Francis will be amongst some of Dallas’ leading philanthropic guests at the second annual Vine and Dine Dinner and Auction tomorrow evening at the Zodiac Room in Neiman Marcus downtown. The stellar duo Chairmen DeeDee Lee and Janie Condon sold out this event benefitting the United Cerebral Palsy of North Texas in two days!!

Guests will be treated to a delicious dinner of a house smoked shrimp and smoked salmon appetizer followed with a Black Angus filet and wild Alaskan king crab entrée created by Chef Kevin Garvin while listening to the sounds of Hunter Sullivan.

A highlight of the evening is their exciting live auction. A few of the luxe packages that will be auctioned by Dwight Emanuelson are a wine-tasting trip to Napa Valley, tickets to the Masters, a lunch for 12 with a fashion presentation and special favor bags for each guest provided by Neva Hall and a pair of white gold hoop earrings with 1.34 carats of diamonds donated by Neiman Marcus.

Celebrating their 56th year, the mission of the United Cerebral Palsy of North Texas is to help disabled children and adults in our community live a more independent and productive life. In 2008 UCP therapists, teachers and other caregivers provided more than 1.2 million hours of direct care to their clients in Dallas County and the surrounding areas.
