What: Wilkinson Center Can Do! Luncheon Kickoff

Where: Tootsies

The 411: More than 60 people showed up to help Wilkinson Center kick off its fifth annual luncheon in true Dallas style at Tootsies at the Plaza at Preston Center. Led by luncheon chair Beth Thoele and underwriting chair Kristi Francis, guests mixed and mingled while enjoying a beautiful spread by Grace Cafe Catering that included cheeses, jams, and miniature sandwich bites galore. Tootsies donated 10 percent of all proceeds from the evening back to Wilkinson Center, which helps Dallas families find pathways out of poverty. The Center's annual Can Do! Luncheon is May 9 at Dallas Country Club and celebrates entrepreneurship in philanthropy. It will honor the Real Estate Council and Ashlee and Chris Kleinert, the 2017 recipients of the Can Do! Awards.
