Simply Summer...Simply Shoes Patron Party & Event Benefiting Turtle Creek Recovery Center

Amy Turner hosted the high-energy, well-heeled crowd of underwriters, in-kind donors and guests at the Simply Summer….Simply Shoes Patron Party last night. Greeted by Patron Party Chairman Elizabeth Hawkins, guests were welcomed with nibbles by Wendy Krispin Caterer, a specialty “Simply Summer Breeze” cocktail and tunes by DJ Andre.

After event chairmen Kim Lewis-Gleason, Kristen Lippe and Jennifer Lott Smit thanked the many underwriters, including “Boot” level patrons Katherine and Eric Reeves and Locke Lord Bissell & Liddell LLP, guests stayed into the evening mingling, visiting and dancing. Upon leaving, they were handed a gift bag filled with a Renee Rouleau Deluxe Hydrating Facial and Mint Buffing Beads, Fiji water, a take-home treat from Nothing Bundt Cakes, a complimentary gelato from Paciugo and a copy of Modern Luxury Dallas.

Simply Summer…Simply Shoes will be held Saturday, August 28 at 7 Senses in the Dallas Design District from 7 – 11p.m. This fun sixth annual cocktail party features a spectacular silent auction of women and men’s new designer shoes and “nearly new” styles from local fashionistas. So, women and men, grab your stilettos or loafers and enjoy the evening of specialty cocktails and scotch, munchies by Wendy Krispin Caterer and entertainment by DJ Jennifer Miller + Paul Paredes and John the Piano Man & Sing-A-Long favorites.

Raffle tickets currently on sale will also be drawn at the end of the evening. This year’s three fabulous chance prizes include a $1,500 Judith Ripka gift card, a three-night stay at Little Dix Bay in Virgin Gorda, B.V.I. including round-trip air-transportation on American Airlines and $1,000 towards a pair of designer shoes and $1,000 towards a handbag at Tootsie’s.
