Brook Hollow Transforms Into Moonlit Dreamland for RMHD Ball {Society Pics}

The Ronald McDonald House of Dallas (RMHD) held its 10th Annual

Moonlight Ball on February 22 at Brook Hollow Golf Club where the ambience of a full moon and hundreds of twinkling votives bathed the ballroom in a soft blue light. Artfully arranged by Junior Villaneuva, gorgeous floral arrangements of white hydrangeas, roses, tulips and dogwood blossoms complemented the soft aqua and chocolate d├ęcor. Guests were greeted by co-chairs Jan Daulton and Melinda Emmons, both of whom have served as dedicated House volunteers and community leaders.

 Guests enjoyed cocktails and conversations before the three course seated dinner. The first course was the Brook Hollow Golf Club signature salad, followed by a petite filet of beef with a red wine sauce, crispy seared sea bass, their famous mac n’ cheese, haricots verts and whole baby carrots. Dessert was the Bailey’s molten cake with caramel ice cream, and then guests danced the night away to music by popular band Signed, Sealed, Delivered.
2014 RMHD Board Chairwoman Natalie Dossett, who also served as underwriting co-chair with good friend and past Board Chairwoman Vera Bangs, welcomed the guests and delivered a heartfelt message regarding the important work that RMHD does for the families who stay there. She then introduced Mike McWilliams who served as Honorary Co-Chairman with his lovely wife Sally.

Beloved volunteers and supporters Sally and Mike McWilliams have served the House for the past 25 years. Sally began volunteering as a Junior League of Dallas volunteer 25 years ago and still volunteers at the front desk every week. She’s also served on the board and in other leadership roles. Mike has served on the board and as a Board Chairman in 2010 and 2011 right after completion of the new House. The McWilliams were joined at the party by family and close friends including their sons and daughters-in-law, Michael and Liz Williams and Matt and Hollin McWilliams.
Jill Cumnock, CEO of Ronald McDonald House of Dallas, said, “We appreciate and thank Jan Daulton, Melinda Emmons and the McWilliams for their hard work as well as their committee and sponsors of the Moonlight Ball. Over the past decade, this event has raised more than $1.5 million for the House, a home-away-from-home for families of seriously ill or injured children.”
