Mosaic Family Services welcomed more than 75 attendees to the 7th Annual Gala Patron Party on Tuesday, September 20 from 5 – 9 p.m. at Abi Ferrin and Kendra Scott in West Village.
Partygoers arrived and enjoyed cocktails and delicious bites donated by CRU, including arancini with roasted pepper tomato sauce, mini meatballs with tomato sugo and shaved Manchego, smoked salmon rillettes and artisan cheese and charcuterie with house made fig jam and fresh Turkish honeycomb.
DJ Lamont Carlis provided a cool vibe as attendees perused fall fashions designed by Abi Ferrin and sparkling accessories at nearby Kendra Scott, with a percentage of proceeds benefiting Mosaic Family Services. Despite the warm temperatures, Abi Ferrin’s outdoor luxury lounge, courtesy of Park Place, was the perfect spot to relax.
The “party for a cause” was in celebration of the upcoming 7th Annual Mosaic Family Services Gala which will be held on Thursday, October 20, 2016 from 7 – 11 p.m. at The Empire Room in the Dallas Design District. Chaired by Melissa Green and Elizabeth Weathersby, with honorary chair Lana Byrne, the gala will include cocktails, dinner by Stock & Barrel, master of ceremonies Steve Kemble, silent auction curated by auction chair Nusia Sookarow, raffle, casino, and music by DJ Lamont Carlis. A highlight of the evening will be the presentation of the 2016 Champion of Human Rights Award to Councilmember Jennifer Staubach Gates. Presenting the award to Councilmember Gates will be her role model and mom, Marianne Staubach, and her colleague, Dallas Police Chief David Pughes.
As the evening came to an end, posh patrons were treated to homemade cake balls by Tina Witkoff and a gift bag of Mary Kay’s Satin Hands signature products.
