Kinkaid Rallies to Beat St. Mark's

Houston Kinkaid defeated St. Mark's, 59-45, in the Southwest Preparatory Conference title game last weekend. The teams combined for more than 1,000 yards of total offense that included big play after big play. In the end, it was Kinkaid's ability to run and pass that scored the Falcons the coveted trophy.

Savor The Symphony at The Adolphus

While the celebrity violins may have gotten looks and big bucks at Savor the Symphony at the Adolphus on March 24, artist Heidi Lockhart Somes' back was also very buzzworthy. As oldsters gawked in amazement, the younger crowd said when asked about the girl with the amazing tattoo, "Oh, you must be talking about Heidi." Indeed they were. From the front, the adorable artist looked like every mother's idea of a gorgeous daughter-in-law. But with the massive-crane-in-flight tattoo on her back, she looked like she belonged in the tattoo hall of fame.

Debutante Presentation Ball at The Meyerson

In the days leading up to the Dallas Symphony Orchestra League's 26th annual Presentation Ball on Feb. 11 at the Meyerson Symphony Center, everything had gone as smoothly as couture models on a catwalk. That was pretty amazing given the large number of debs, but DSOL president Marena Gault, ball chair Lillie Young, and co-chairs Sharon Popham and Annell Williams, along with Barbara Paschall Averitt, had all their bases covered from Thursday night's dinner to Sunday's brunch benefiting the Dallas Symphony Orchestra.

14th Annual Bishop's Gala at Hilton Anatole

Comedian Martin Short's first choice to demonstrate the "Three Amigos" salute at the Catholic Charities benefit on Jan. 21 at the Hilton Anatole took a pass. Good move. The three chaps (Bill Stuart, Wes Schuler, and Kevin Marino) who ended up on stage found themselves donning major sombreros, crossing arms, and "thrusting." So, who was the first choice? Dallas Bishop Kevin Farrell.

Party at The Family Place Resale Shop

The original plan for the Jan. 11 party at the Family Place Resale Shop was to have guests bring bags of gently used, no-longer-needed items from their closets. Upon spotting the goodies in the shop, Maggie Kipp and Shay Geyer put together an impromptu fashion show using guests as models, including Amanda Ward, who found a black-lace, short skirt that matched her black lace stockings to a "T." The cost of the skirt? Seven dollars.

However, Stars junior forward Zach Yoshor had the Knights plenty fazed. Yoshor put on a clinic to the tune of 24 points, 12 rebounds, two blocks, and two steals to lead Beren to a 58-46 victory on Friday afternoon at Nolan Catholic's Hartnett Arena.

Paws Cause 2012 at Sambuca Uptown

Despite his position as president of the SPCA of Texas, James Bias isn't immune to pooch run-ins. At the Jan. 29 Paws Cause at Sambuca Uptown, he was sporting a surgical boot. Seems he had stubbed his little toe against a door jamb, breaking it in three spots.

Unfortunately, earlier on the day of the SPCA fundraiser, the Biases' latest foster, Levi the rat terrier, had run into that exact toe, reminding James that the unfashionable boot was very necessary.

St. Valentine's Day Fashion Show and Luncheon at Hilton Anatole

Red is the go-to color for guests to wear for the St. Valentine's Day Fashion Show and Luncheon benefiting the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of North Texas. This year, Alicia Landry, who annually awards the Spirit of Tom Landry Character Award, broke with traditional red at the Hilton Anatole on Feb. 14.

Why? Because she had run out of red outfits to wear. So she went with green.

St. Valentine's Day Toast at Kelly and Norman Green's Home

Guests at Kelly and Norman Green's estate for their annual St. Valentine's "Toast to TACA" noticed some new faces on Feb. 14. They were a little surprised when the newcomers, who were sprinkled through the crowd, suddenly burst into song, perfectly in sync.

The flash mob was made up of members of the Dallas Bach Society, who sang "My Bonnie Lass She Smileth" by Thomas Morley and "My Bonnie Lass She Smelleth" by P.D.Q. Bach. No, it wasn't a high-brow concert. Rather, it was a brief couple of tunes that provided opportunities for guests to smile with eyes twinkling.

Karaoke Lounge at Edison's

The Karaoke Lounge benefiting the Turtle Creek Recovery Center may have had a rough start the evening of Feb. 24. Although chairs Cary Deuber and Danya Anderson had a great-looking crowd, including gorgeous gals in short sequined dresses, they ran into some sound issues. You know, the type where there is no sound. Emcee Steve Kemble muttered to a friend, "I had nothing to do with the sound, and quite frankly the fact that it went out is probably a good thing for the audience. … Now they don't have to hear me sing!"

Finally, the problem was resolved, and by the end of the night, thanks to a very open bar, nearly everyone took mic in hand.

Billiard Ball at Ritz-Carlton

The triumvirate of JB Hayes and Racheland Chris Trowbridge had all their flappers in place for the jazz-themed Billiard Ball at the Ritz-Carlton on Feb. 18. Not only did they have a top-notch, sell-out crowd for the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Dallas fundraiser — including Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings, Nancy Dedman with generations of Dedmans, Susanand Tom Stanzel, Linda and Steve Ivy, Vickie and Dulany Howland, and Ebby Halliday — the honorees were Barbara and Steve Durham.

But the Durhams turned the tables on the evening's agenda. In accepting their award, they asked the crowd to join them in singing an early "Happy Birthday" to Ebby, who was within days of turning 101.

Thomas Jefferson Falls in Shootout

Thomas Jefferson was just 74 seconds away from a berth in the Class 4A Region II final.

And then that pesky 73rd second had to come along.

That was when Kilgore's Ramse Mojica took a long pass, caught Patriots goal-keeper Jorge Garcia flat-footed, and buried a goal that forced overtime . The Bulldogs ended up winning a shootout in sudden death for a 2-1 regional semifinal victory at Standridge Stadium.

It Was a Mad Mad Mad Mad Hatter's Tea Party

Co-chairs Barbara Daseke and Carmaleta Whiteley decided to go in a different direction this year for the Mad Hatter's Tea at the Dallas Arboretum & Botanical Garden on April 12. After the whimsical "Alice in Wonderland" theme last year, they opted for the world of art with "The Art of Nature." To up the ante, they even arranged to have Nancy Rogers as honorary chair and such credentialed art experts as Lita Asscher, Brenda Bogart, Kenneth Craighead, Patricia Meadows, Gail Sachson, and Jeremy Strick as judges.

Celebrity Waiter Gala Kickoff Party at Patton Boggs

Patton Boggs was filled with characters March 22. No, not Disney-type characters. Think Judith "Mrs. Permian Basin International 2012" Harris with her crown and sash in place. She, along with Melissa "Big Rich Texas" Poe and adorably cute NBC5 meteorologist Samantha Davies in a yellow frock, gathered along with 2012 Celebrity Waiter Gala best friends to kick off plans for the 20th anniversary of the Child Abuse Prevention Center.

Co-chair Joel Hurley took the lead, recognizing the contributions of many, including his co-chair wife, Ann Hurley. Talking up the evening's activities, he really hit a home run, telling them that one of the items up for bid will be "Creede Williams performing in your backyard."

If The Shoe Fits, D'Andra Buys It

D'Andra Simmons and Colin Duchinhad hardly finished moving into their new digs in Highland Park when they hosted a sponsors party for the No Tie Dinner on March 10 benefiting AIDS Services. One of the very special spots in the two-story home was the couple's dressing area. While Colin managed to get a few square feet of space for his Dolce & Gabbana shoes, jeans, and suits, D'Andra's legendary collection of 600-plus couture shoes surpassed speculation. Each pair was neatly placed in see-through shoe boxes in individual cubbyholes ... with a color photo of the pair showing through the box for quick identification.
