Event Review: Simply Grace Benefit and Big Rich Texas Filming
© The Flash List | August 13, 2012
Patrons gathered on Saturday to “shop for a cause” at Uptown Consignment, a resale boutique owned by Camille Umland and her sister Connie Dieb (a star on the popular Style Network reality television show Big Rich Texas). A portion of the proceeds from the day’s sales of brand-name couture treasures was pledged to benefit Simply Grace, a non-profit recovery residence founded by Anika Cooper which provides a safe and supportive living environment for persons participating in alcohol and drug treatment programs.
Shoppers were served refreshments (including hors d’oeuvres featuring recipes from Connie’s forthcoming cookbook) and guests in attendance eagerly watched (and/or participated in) the taping of an upcoming episode of Big Rich Texas. Additional attendees at the event included the show’s own Leslie Birkland, Melissa Poe, DeAynni Hatley, and Bonnie Blossman.
