Karen Beiber and her husband Michael had an agreement. Michael was always free to play as many rounds of guilt-free golf as he liked … as long as he always came home.
At the sold-out 2013 Fresh Faces of Fashion Gala Dinner at the Rosewood Crescent Hotel benefiting the Suicide & Crisis Center of North Texas, Karen told the heart-wrenching story of the day that Michael did not come home. Like so many others, her world was instantly shattered when she learned that her beloved husband, with whom she’d been for 18 years, had taken his own life. Karen eventually found solace and support in a “Survivors of Suicide” (“SOS”) group at the Suicide & Crisis Center where she says her life “gradually, in tiny, tiny increments” improved.
To increase awareness of the preventative measures offered for this very unfortunate type of tragedy, SCC Executive Director Margie Wright teamed up with Yvonne Crum to found Fresh Faces of Fashion, an annual runway fashion show and elegant seated dinner designed to raise funds for the Center’s much needed services. Bringing in over a million dollars toward the cause in its first five years, Fresh Faces of Fashion has become one of Dallas’ most anticipated events.
This year’s affair, co-chaired by Yvonne Crum and Martha Wyly Miller, featured original designs by featured designers Sachin and Babi Ahluwalia and looks by Stanley Korshak modeled by twelve stylish and community-conscious young ladies (Nicole Barrett, Peyton Blackwell, Paige Hardison, Bailey Harrison, Bentley Hill, Jessica Jones, Cristina Lynch, Maddy McKinley, Priya Bhola Rathod, Rachel Riley, Melody Rogers and Nicole Stewart). Guests sipped cocktails, chatted with friends, listened to music, and dined well into the evening on delicious chicken filet mignon and Godiva chocolate cake by Rosewood Executive Chef Juan Rosado.
