Shay Geyer & Maggie Kipp are Texans With Character

The Celebrity Waiter Luncheon is no ordinary charity ladies-who-lunch event...

My friend Teresa Frosini called me a couple of days ago and said she was looking for someone to interview for a series she has called Texans with Character on CBS. She wondered if I knew of anyone who might fit the bill.  The problem wasn't "do I know anyone", my problem is that I know a million people who are worthy of being spotlighted! Dallas is full of amazing people doing good works to better our community.  

Maggie Kipp and Shay Geyer are co-chairing this year's Celebrity Waiter Luncheon benefiting Family Gateway. Not only is this event the most fun you will ever have at a charity event, they raised over $100,000 at last year's event and plan to double that goal this year. They have already been tapped to co-chair the Dallas Arboretum's Mad Hatter's event next Spring. These two are the new power couple of the Dallas charity scene so they were a no-brainer for this segment and I was happy to connect them to Teresa.

Here's the segment that aired today:

If you want a seat to the best luncheon in town, you'd better act quick. I am being told that there are only about 4 tables left to this year's Celebrity Waiter Luncheon benefiting Family Gateway. Click here for more information or to purchase a table or individual tickets.

PS: Love that I got a little cameo in this piece! Check me out in the ginormous sunglasses at :33 seconds into the segment standing next to Shay! And this is my video footage of Steve Kemble leading the room in the Village People's YMCA. To see the complete video ( a moment that will live in infamy) visit
