I’m not a Kappa but I’m the Mom of one. That aside, I have attended Kappa Tablescapes for many years supporting my Kappa friends. Tablescapes is the Dallas Kappa Kappa Gamma alumni event that has worked diligently to raise over $2.5 million benefitting more than 70 local charities and organizations over the past 20 years. That makes it my hot ticket event.
Never been? Grab your ticket and be ready to be in awe! Co-chairs Amy Burgher and Brittany Gaskill have secured interior designer Jan Showers as keynote speaker for this years luncheon event. Want a sneak peek before everyone else? Be sure to take advantage of the Candlelight ticket on Monday night. Can’t attend but want to support the amazing efforts of this incredible organization? Be sure to make an online donation or buy some raffle tickets. I hope you can go. The designers go all out creating magnificent table decor where you are seated for lunch. All proceeds benefit area non-profits. I am listing details about all the way you can support this wonderful cause below.
