More than 400 young professionals descended on Union Station to party the night away — for a cause, of course — at the annual Ronald McDonald House of Dallas Young Friends Party.

A powerful philanthropic trifecta — Bradley Agather Means, Meghan Looney and Medley Turner — served as co-chairs and dreamed up the spectacular “An Evening in Casablanca” theme, which wowed attendees thanks to decorations chairs Katie Crow and Lizzie Duplantis. This duo enlisted the help of Jackson Durham and Perch, who transformed Union Station to old Morocco with potted palms, Casablanca lilies, hundreds of votives and the film Casablanca running in silence above the main stage where DJ Lucy Wrubel spun her tracks.

Once sated by scrumptious snacks courtesy of Wolfgang Puck, such as truffle mac and cheese, gourmet pizza, mini sliders, and pigs in a blanket, guests — including Kathryn and John Fife, Casey and Morgan Hunt, Meredith and Michael Meden, Mary Summer-Hafaner, Sally Miller, and Molly Miller — got ready to big bid at the silent auction.

Competition was fierce for packages such as an autumn trophy hunt at historic Newell Ranch, a trip to Napa, a Marfa gallery weekend, 50-yard line front row seats to a Cowboys game, and exquisite home décor and jewelry — secured by auction chairs Sarah Kate Jones and Bailey Lloyd. Many guests stayed in the auction room until the bitter end, and every item sold.

Established in 1981, the Ronald McDonald House of Dallas has served as a home-away-from-home for more than 35,000 families of seriously ill children who have traveled to Dallas seeking medical treatment in area hospitals.
