Junior League of Dallas Announces Former First Lady Laura Bush as Keynote Speaker of The Milestones Luncheon

 
Teacher. Advocate. Inspiration. One of the most beloved and admired American First Ladies, for decades former First Lady Laura Bush has championed key issues in the fields of education, healthcare, and human rights. The Junior League of Dallas (JLD) has the distinct pleasure of welcoming Mrs. Bush as the keynote speaker of The Milestones Luncheon, which will take place Thursday, November 6, 2014, at the Hilton Anatole Hotel. 
“We are honored to have former First Lady Laura Bush speak at The Milestones Luncheon in November. The Luncheon’s purpose is to educate and inspire, and as a member of the Junior League of Dallas herself, we could not think of a more fitting person than Mrs. Bush to emphasize the importance of voluntarism, empowerment of women and improving our community,” said President of the Junior League of Dallas, Julie Bagley. “Her experience and passion for key issues such as education and healthcare relate directly to the programs and mission of the Junior League.” 
 
The Luncheon will also recognize the 2014-2015 Sustainer of the Year, Regen Fearon. Mrs. Fearon continually reflects the mission of the JLD through her activism in the community, her commitment to early childhood education, and her charitable work with organizations like the Big Sister Program, ChildCareGroup, Commit and Dallas Assembly.
The Milestones Luncheon is an annual fundraiser benefiting the Junior League of Dallas Community Service Fund and is a platform to raise awareness for the programs and issues supported by the JLD, as well as to recognize the impact and achievements of its volunteers. Proceeds from The Milestones Luncheon, along with general underwriting efforts, allow the JLD to annually grant $1 million dollars to the Dallas community.
 
Individual Luncheon tickets are $175, and Patron Luncheon tickets are $250. Table sales begin at $3,000. To purchase tables or individual tickets, please contact the JLD Development Office at (214) 357-8822, ext. 118 or visit www.jld.net/luncheon for more information.
