Women’s Auxiliary of Nexus Spring Luncheon chair Jane Geisse, along with honorary chairs Sally and Forrest Hoglund, welcomed more than 100 guests to a special patron reception at Craighead Green Gallery in the Dallas Design District.

The room was abuzz with chatter about Dr. Drew Pinsky, the featured speaker at the upcoming annual event. Pinsky is a board certified internist, board certified addiction medicine specialist, and one of the most sought-after doctors in radio and television. Leave it to the determined ladies of Nexus to lure him to Dallas for a chat.

Supporters — including Becca Crowell, Betsy and Jim Chambers, Karen and Dwight Otto, Becky Frey, Nancy and Jack Zogg, and Billie Leigh Rippey — enjoyed wine, champagne and delicious bites by Nick & Sam’s as they perused the beautiful contemporary artworks.

This evening was the final gathering of patrons before “A Conversation with Dr. Drew Pinsky,” which is set for April 22 at the Hilton Anatole. Individual seats are $150 and can be purchased online.

Proceeds from this annual fundraiser support the vital drug and alcohol addiction treatment services at Nexus Recovery Center for the adolescent/adult women and children served in their residential program.
