Preservation Dallas’ 50th Anniversary, generous Sponsors and our 300 celebratory guests helped us propel the 23rd annual Awards to be our most successful. Our ticket holders were excited to put on their formalwear and be treated to an exquisite evening, from beginning to end. Todd Interests delivered the finest dining experience at The National ballroom and capped the evening with a champagne toast that resonated the clink of preservation. The crescendo to the toast was our 50th Anniversary film which you can see here.
We are indebted to the leadership of the Awards Committee Chaired by Shawn and Cheryl Todd alongside David Griffin and James Ferrara. The committee members were comprised of some familiar Preservation Dallas friends including Danelle Baldwin Smith, Charles Brower, Harryette Ehrhardt, Catherine Horsey, W. Dwayne Jones, Veletta Lill, Katherine D. Seale, Nancy Shelton, Patrick Todd, Philip Todd and Claudia Worme.
