Report Cards in for RECESS! Sponsor Party

The Dallas Afterschool Sponsor Party on March 25th at the home of Amy Turner was a great success - the weather cooperated, the atmosphere was festive, and everyone is now ready for RECESS! - it was an A++ evening!
Amy Turner, Auction Chair opened her gorgeous home and Co-Chairs, Christina Norris and Meredith Camp greeted guests at the door. Sponsors arrived to sneak a peek of Park Place Dealership's newest Volvo, sample the fantastic food from Kent Rathbun, and savor wines and spirits from Moet Hennessy in anticipation of more in store in the Cafeteria and at the Monkey Bar on April 25th at our RECESS! Party at the home of Faye Briggs. To top off the perfect evening, guests were treated to a sweet surprise as they left the event - Gold Crown Valet made sure each guest had a beautiful box of Toasted Almond Sea Salt Chocolates from Dr. Sue's Chocolates waiting in their car.
