The Stewpot's Soup's On! Luncheon Featured Beautiful Artwork and Top Chefs

Posted 1/25/11

We stood mesmerized at the silent art auction admiring a truly exquisite watercolor painting. Any upscale Dallas interior designer could easily decorate an entire room around its beautifully balanced composition of vibrant colors. The artist who created it? One of the participants in the Stewpo's Open Art Program.


The Stewpot, established in 1975 by First Presbyterian Church, provides a safe haven and resources to Dallas' homeless and hungry including food provision, health care, housing, case management, substance abuse assistance, job training, and youth programs, as well as creative and social activities including art classes, community concerts, and talent shows.


The occasion for this art auction was The Stewpot's annual Soups On! fundraising luncheon. For a per ticket donation of $150 or more (which benefits Stewpot programs), well-dressed patrons received a warm welcome from emcee Gary Cogill (former Channel 8 personality turned film producer), and they heard remarks from Dallas Mayor Tom Leppert, introductions from 2011 chair Lillie Young (senior vice president of the The Lillie Young Group, Allie Beth Allman Associates), a keynote address from Morton H. Meyerson on the subject of Creating a Vision of Leadership, and closing remarks from The Rev. Dr. Bruce Buchanan (Executive Director of The Stewpot and Associate Pastor of First Presbyterian Church).


Guests also tasted delicious signature soups from some of Dallas' top chefs including Brian Luscher (The Grape), Keith Hanks (The Capital Grille), Joel Harloff (The Green Room), David McMillan (MCM Restaurants), Kevin Garvin (Neiman Marcus Restaurants),? Nathan Tate & Randall Copeland (Restaurant AVA), Bruno Davillon (Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek), Abraham Salum (Salum), and Jim Severson (Sevy's).
