Angels for EOS Par-Tee for a Cure and Golf Tournament

This past weekend we had the pleasure of being a part of the Angels for EOS Par-Tee for a Cure and Golf Tournament. Amy, one of the two mom's who founded Angels for EOS, found us in the CRAVE Dallas book and approached us in April to help her plan the Par-Tee at Marie Gabrielle. We were immediately touched by Amy and Cindy's stories, their passion for helping find a cure for their sons and for many other people with Eosinophilic disorders. We were on board from the moment we met with them, and were so excited to have fun planning this Par-Tee as well as help an amazing cause! 

Amy came to us already knowing that she wanted the gala event to be "summer chic". Which we immediately loved! We decided on a clean, crisp, summery color palette of green and white with silver accents. We had a blast picking out linens and rentals (a fun funky lounge was a must), meeting with florist Deitra Butler of Lush Couture Floral and with lighting pros Jennifer Burns and Robert Winter from Beyond, tasting gelato and sorbet from Paciguo and popcorn flavors from Uptown Popcorn, to name just a few of the fun things we did planning this event. Here are some "sneak peak" photos from the Par-Tee, taken on our iPhones. We can't wait to see, and share with you, the photos from Greg Blomberg and video by ProEdit Productions. Stay tuned!

                                                        Love this lounge we created!

The day after the Par-Tee, Angels for EOS hosted a golf tournament at Tour 18 in Flower Mound. We had a blast "riding along", putting a few times, enjoying the gorgeous (but hot) day, and helping raise money for this fabulous cause. Here are a few of our iPhone photos from the golf tourney.
