What: Junior League of Dallas 95th Charter Day Party
Where: Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children
The 411: Celebrating the Junior League of Dallas' 95th anniversary, members and friends gathered at Texas Scottish Rite Hospital, which is the league's longest agency relationship, to honor those who have helped make the organization what it is today. The family-friendly event featured entertainment, games, face painting, and food from Ruthie's Rolling Cafe and Chez Flo. The campaign goal of $95,000 was surpassed and goes to helping the league better serve local nonprofits.
