A Classic Evening of Caring Presented by Bank of America Benefiting the Visiting Nurse Association


Folks, rev up your engines!! Classic cars like Nita Prothro Clark’s 1959 Fiat and Jay Hull’s 1950 Mercury will be on display as guests walk into the spectacular and contemporary Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre next Sunday, February 28 for A Classic Evening of Caring Presented by Bank of America. Chairmen Nita and Cullum Clark and Honorary Chairmen Bess and Ted Enloe have worked diligently with a small team to create this exciting not-to-be-missed event!!

Set amongst the backdrop of the Dallas skyline with theater lights above, 350 guests will have the unique experience of sipping cocktails and enjoying a seated Wolfgang Puck dinner in the Potter Rose Performance Hall. For those of you who have not had a chance to see it yet, here is your chance! Docents will be available for short tours during the reception and entertainment will be provided by Jampact, the jazz quartet led by Dean Jose Bowen of the SMU Meadows School.

After dinner, the crowd will be able to bid on their signature “Fund A Need” Live Auction which raised over $80,000 last year. The “Fund A Need” donations range from $10,000 to $100. For example, $1,500 will fund Meals on Wheels delivery for one person for one year. There is no limit on the number of folks who can “Fund A Need”.

This year four outstanding packages will precede “Fund A Need". One package includes four floor tickets for the March 11, 2010 sold-out Taylor Swift concert, a “Meet and Greet” with Taylor and a backstage tour with Taylor’s mother, Andrea following the concert at the American Airlines Center. Mary and Richard Templeton and Front Line Management donated this priceless package.

Another live auction item includes four Club Level seats at Cowboy’s Stadium for a Dallas Cowboy’s 2010 football game. Club Seating includes access to the luxurious and private Silver Club and Cowboys Club. Marianne and Roger Staubach donated this $1,700 package.

The Visiting Nurse Association helps patients regain their health and retain independence while remaining in their homes for as long as safely possible. VNA programs include Meals on Wheels, Home Health Care and Hospice Care. Caring, listening and responding to patients’ quality of life and comfort are the hallmark of VNA services.

Individual tickets are $250 for general seating; $500 for preferred seating. Tables are $2,500 to $10,000 depending on seating. Sponsorships are still available. For more information, please contact Christina Moore at 214-689-2211 or moorec@vnatexas.org.
