We had a BIG Dallas month in April. From selling lemonade to end child slavery with Make A Stand, to the CASA Gala and the Wine Dinner at The Adolphus with Fess Parker Winery, hanging with my siblings at mom and dads, and hearing the amazing Sarah Sellers perform at Cool River in Irving – it looks like May is going to be just as power-packed! Here is a look at our hot list for this month. Get out there and be seen, share your story, make new friends!
Love & Peace,
