Dallas Icons Share Careers at The Stephens College Alumnae Club

The Stephens College Alumnae Club of Dallas Annual Texas Fundraising Luncheon featured two Dallas icons, Jan Strimple and Tom Addis, who shared a thoroughly entertaining and insightful retrospective of highlights of their careers as the keynote speakers at this year’s event at the Dallas Country Club on Oct. 21.

The club’s main hall held a special treat – costumes and gowns, from avant-guard to elegant, showcasing a few of Jan’s fashionable productions, were exhibited on mannequins, which we would later learn were created in Jan’s form.

Guests arrived and enjoyed bidding in the silent auction while catching up with friends and families, some sharing a two-generation or more history as Stephens College alums.

The room was beautifully set with luncheon tables swathed in fuchsia silks and luscious floral arrangements of hydrangea and roses, all by Garden Gate Florist.
