Thursday May 12th, 2011
Union Station; 400 S. Houston
1:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.

A welcome by Auxiliary President Beverly Barry will open the luncheon, followed by an invocation by Mark Davis of Park Cities Presbyterian Church. The theme of this year's luncheon, "the Miracle that happens in between", is a direct quote from a Nexus client who once described her experience there as the miracle that happens in between addiction and recovery, despair and hope. Accordingly, a former client of Nexus Recovery Center will bravely share her personal story, which is always a powerful testimony. Additionally, a Nexus video entitled "The Miracle that Happens in Between" will detail how Nexus empowers women and families to break the cycle of addiction.

Auxiliary member Sarah Katherine Francis will then introduce her friends Candice, Barbara and Jenna to the expected 500+ luncheon guests. This 2011 luncheon is Co-Chaired by Susan Griffiths and Dee Velvin, with Honorary Chair Allie Beth Allman. Dee adds, "With our featured speakers, Barbara and Jenna, we look forward to sharing the importance of Nexus to a broader audience this year."

Wolfgang Puck will cater the lunch and "Nexus Blend" iced tea will be served compliments of The Cultured Cup. Also, guests can purchase $25 raffle tickets for a chance in 3 drawings: $1000 Saks Fifth Avenue gift card, a two night stay at The Joule with dinner for four at Charlie Palmer, and two court-side seats for the 2011-12 Dallas Mavericks.

Individual tickets are $125 and sponsor table opportunities range from $2500 to $10,000. Various sponsorship benefits include an invitation to a private meet & greet with the Bush sisters. Interested parties should contact Dee Velvin at 214.850.4087 or dee@paradv.com
