Dec My Room announces the third annual Room to Grow Luncheon and Fashion Presentation on Wednesday, April 17 at 11:00 a.m. at the Neiman Marcus Courtyard in NorthPark Center. Proceeds from the event will benefit Dec My Room, a non-profit organization dedicated to enhancing the lives of children who are being admitted into a hospital for a prolonged amount of time. 


Chaired by Kristi Bare and Nancy Gopez, with NorthPark chair Kristen Gibbins, Room to Grow will include a reception, luxury raffle items, a seated luncheon, and a presentation by both Kimberly Schlegel Whitman, NorthPark’s Fashion and Lifestyle Ambassador, and Meredith Land, NBC-5 evening anchor.  The presentation will showcase the trending colors of spring fashion from Neiman Marcus NorthPark, followed by bubbles and sweets on Level Two of Neiman Marcus. Nine-year-old Bennett Williams, son of Kirsa and Keith Williams, will receive the 2019 Celebrate Flight Award.  


“Thank you to NorthPark Center and Neiman Marcus for supporting the Room to Grow Luncheon and Fashion Presentation again this year, which benefits Dec My Room and the children we serve.  We know it will be a fabulous day of fashion and fundraising in the beautiful outdoor setting of the Neiman Marcus Courtyard,” remarked Karen Michlewicz, Dallas executive director. “We are also honored to present Bennett with the Celebrate Flight Award. Through the funds raised from the luncheon, we will be able to create healing spaces for more children who have extended stays in the hospital like Bennett.”


Founded 12 years ago in Houston, with the Dallas chapter celebrating its 4thanniversary, Dec My Room helps “to create a healing place” for children who are being admitted into a hospital for a prolonged amount of time. Dec My Room volunteers personalize the hospital room upon a patient’s arrival with items that complement the special likes and interests of the individual patient. These items are for them to enjoy during their stay and take home when they leave. Dec My Room is a unique and innovative charitable program whose efforts help improve the attitudes of patients and their healing process.
