A Night in the Emerald City with the Breast Bridge Network

On Saturday, February 18, 2012 the Breast Bridge Network held their annual fundraiser Fly Away With The Bridge in the new Million Air Dallas hangar and terminal.  Approximately 350 guests filled Million Air Dallas for an evening of cocktails, food creations from local celebrity chefs, silent & live auctions and dancing. This year’s Event Chairs, Janie Morris & Hamilton Sneed were excited to continue the tradition with the theme: “A Night In the Emerald City” in celebration of 20 years of service to the North Texas community.

For every dollar donated, Bridge clients receive nearly 10 times that amount in medical care. Over 235 physicians in the Metroplex have graciously volunteered their professional services and 49 medical facilities have greatly reduced their fees to make such a large discount possible.  The Bridge serves uninsured and underinsured women in 16 counties in the DFW area.  In the past decade, The Bridge has served over 78,000 North Texas women and connected more than 10,000 with medical treatment.

I spied Ryan and Dawn Neufeld, CW33's Giselle Phelps and Toni Duclottni, Dan Pritchett and Mrs. Texas Kayla Wharton grazing the celebrity food stations. And who can blame them when we were being served by Tim Bevins from Craft Dallas, Tim Byres from Smoke, Tiffany Derry from Private | Social, Abraham Salum from Komali, Tre Wilcox from Marquee Grill and more!  TruBone was rocking the stage and I wasn't surprised to spot jewelry designer Shona Gilbert and the night's emcee LeeAnne Locken hitting the dance floor to burn off those calories.
