Mid-Cities Chapter of Kappa Alpha Theta presents the Ruby Slipper Soiree benefiting CASA of Tarrant County!
Thursday, February 1, 2018 • 5:30-8:00pm
The Marq in Southlake
The 5th Ruby Slipper Soiree reminds us all that there is “No Place Like Home” with a night of fabulous wine, food, friends and of course, shoes!
At this year’s event, guests will enjoy an array of hearty appetizers prepared by award-winning chef, Charles Youts, and The Classic at Roanoke and dessert from Nothing Bundt’ Cakes Southlake. A shoe and accessory fashion show will follow, featuring designs from returning style partners Brighton, Elaine Turner, Kendra Scott and Premier Designs, modeled by Texas Christian University (TCU) Thetas. Elaine Turner, Kendra Scott and Premier Designs will sell pieces from their collections at the event and donate 20 percent of all earnings to CASA.
Throughout the evening, guests will have an opportunity to win raffle prizes and sample cocktails from Candy’s Signature Cocktails. For a $25 donation, participants can also take part in the returning “Spirits and Sparkle Pull.” Participants will receive one bottle of Candy’s Signature Spirits or wine, along with a select piece of Kendra Scott or Premier Design jewelry.
Attendees wearing red shoes (ruby slippers) receive one free raffle ticket. Additional tickets can be purchased at the event. Raffle prizes include gifts from style partners Elaine Turner and Kendra Scott. In addition, presenting sponsor Cosmetic & Family Dentistry of North Texas has assembled a special gift basket.
A brief program will feature Colleyville resident and 2017 Advocate of the Year Elizabeth Mattson, who will discuss her experiences as a CASA advocate working directly with foster children in Tarrant County and the benefits advocates can offer these children.
Tarrant County has the 2nd highest number of confirmed cases of child abuse in Texas. CASA of Tarrant County and Kappa Alpha Theta believe every child deserves a clear voice, a safe home, and a bright future, regardless of their life circumstances.
