HONORING Norm Hitzges Distinguished Service Award Recipients: FRANK AND THE LATE MARYANN MIHALOPOULOS CORPORATE SERVICE AWARD RECIPIENT: THE DALLAS MAVERICKS
The Humble Beginnings Luncheon, now in its 21st year, is an upbeat and elegant mid-day luncheon affair that has drawn more than 700 social, civic and business leaders from across the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. This year we gather around the theme “Come Together” and are delighted to welcome award-winning actress, singer and songwriter, Cynthia Erivo.
This year’s Luncheon recognizes the contributions of many who work tirelessly to create the dynamic community in which we live. The devotion and generosity of the Dallas philanthropic community is evidenced by the more than 400 individuals that have joined the host committee led by Hon. Jeanne Phillips and her daughter Margaret Phillips.
