The night we were all waiting for finally happened on March 21.  Friends and supporters of the Suicide and Crisis Center of North Texas convened at the Dallas Country Club to promote suicide prevention.  The first Fashion Stars for a Cause event was a huge, SOLD OUT event.  Hundreds of people from the Dallas fashion and charity community, plus 10 members from my family, were in attendance.  The chic soiree began with the signature Fashion Stars Cocktail and a runway show.  After the 12 Fashion Stars strutted on the runway in Tootsies dresses, Terry Bentley Hill inspired the audience with a message of hope.  All of this was possible because of Yvonne Crum.  She's tirelessly dedicated to important causes, especially the SCC for the past several years.  Her energy and involvement is inspiring.  Thank you, Yvonne for making it happen.  It means so much to me that I was nominated alongside these dynamic, accomplished, and compassionate women.  This was an experience of a lifetime that I'm forever grateful for.
