Debbie and Michael Thompson welcomed their family's closest friends, confidants and associates to their lovely Preston Hollow estate on November 5th all in support of Nexus Recovery Center. Despite the Fall rain more than 90 guests attended the 2013/2014 Nexus Annual Fund Appeal Kick Off including prestigious business leaders, political candidates and other recognized faces.

They with their families hope to pay tribute to their mother, an original member of the Nexus Auxiliary, by raising $200,000 in two weeks.
