2 5 Greer Garson Gala A Hit!
“I thought the Greer Garson Gala was by far one of the best events I have attended,” stated Mandy Peters, attorney with Jones Day law firm and a guest at the 2005 Greer Garson Gala. “It was wonderful to see the community out in full force to stand behind such a worthwhile cause. The entire night was organized, classy, well-executed and, most of all, fun!” Ms. Peters and her friends enjoyed the exquisite cuisine, the free-flowing spirits and dancing until the wee hours of the night on April 16 along with more than 550 other guests.
The night began with a cocktail hour with tasty appetizers, a silent auction with many desirable items up for bid and the musical delights of the Ricki Derek Band, who played songs from classics like Frank Sinatra. Dinner
began a little after 7:30 p.m. and guests were so intrigued with the silent auction items and the excitement of so many familiar faces that they found it difficult to break away to their tables in the main dining area. But once they all found their seats, the guests were pleased with four courses prepared by Wendy Krispin Catering.
The program for the night consisted of many thanks to the events’ chairpersons, Lyle Foster and Katherine Mathes, and their many advisory and executive committee members, as well as the gala honorary co-chairs, Angie Harmon Sehorn and Jason Sehorn. Mrs. Sehorn spoke sincerely about her positive experience at Presbyterian Hospital of Dallas (PHD), her and her hus- band’s complete support of the hospital and
the physicians and health care staff who help make PHD their hospital of choice. In addition to the spoken gratitude, a video was shown highlighting the skill, dedication and teamwork of the health care staff and physicians on the medical staff at PHD. The overwhelming gratitude shown during the program only served to further infuse the delightful mood of the evening. After dinner, Sauce, a local dance band, played popular hit songs while guests danced and enjoyed themselves.
“The gala was one that all of the guests are sure to remember,” said Ben Casey, president of Presbyterian Healthcare Foundation. “We are so proud of the turn- out and the success of the event.”
