Event Recap: KidneyTexas 2013 Luncheon & Style Show

KidneyTexas 2013 Luncheon and Style Show

Posted September 24, 2013 | © Photo by The Flash List

Brook Hollow Golf Club was abuzz with fashion and fervor on Tuesday morning as hundreds of well-dressed women (and a smattering of dapper gentlemen) gathered for The Runway Report 2013 Luncheon & Style Show benefiting KidneyTexas, Inc.

 

Natalie Taylor, the 2013 KidneyTexas Inc. President, welcomed guests and introduced luncheon co-chairs Lauryn Gayle White and Terri Bumgarner. Honorary chair ReneWinter thanked sponsors; and her husband, noted physician and media personality Dr. R. David Winter Jr., verbally applauded attendees (via video broadcast) for the giving of contributions to those who are affected by kidney disease and for their gifts toward research into preventions and cures. Style Council members and their families made an appearance before the remarkable stories of a number of kidney donors and recipients brought emotional reactions from the audience.

 

Graceful models then took to the runway sporting looks by designers such as Roberto Cavalli, Ralph Lauren, Alexander McQueen, Kate Spade, Dsquared2, and many more in a Jan Strimple-produced style show sponsored by Tootsies. WFAA news anchor Ron Corning emceed the event and facilitated a live auction which consisted of items such as dinner for four at City Cafe, luxury suite tickets to the upcoming Bon Jovi concert at American Airlines Center, and framed artwork by artist Georgeana Ireland who was on hand to discuss the inspiration behind her painting Dancing Waters II. Post-auction, guests dismissed to the dining area where they enjoyed autumn salads with fanned grilled chicken along with warm chocolate melting cake by Brook Hollow Executive Chef Dave Sokol.

 

The purpose of Kidney Texas is “to provide funding to improve the methods of treatment, cure, and prevention of kidney disease and other kindred or contributory diseases; and to develop more adequate provision for the care of persons suffering from such diseases.”Beneficiaries of KidneyTexas include the National Kidney Foundation’s Camp Renal, Children’s Medical Center, and UT Southwestern Medical Center.
