More than 250 women flocked to Timothy Oulton on April 10 for Dallas Stars Hockey & Heels presented by Dr Pepper, which benefited the Dallas Stars Foundation’s playground build for the upcoming 2014-15 season. It was a little bit of everything women love - networking, cocktails, and shopping - all in support of a wonderful cause.
Ladies gathered to mix and mingle at the stylish venue, eat some delicious food provided by Desperado’s Restaurant and sip on great cocktails by Smirnoff.
Dallas Stars broadcaster, Ali Lucia, and Stars national anthem singer and in-arena host, Celena Rae, hosted the first-ever women's networking event by the Stars organization, along with the wives of current Dallas Stars players and coaches.
Local Dallas retailers including Real Deal Diamonds, Garden Ridge, Bed Head, Kendra Scott, Osborne Advisors and Rich Hippie attended the event with their latest products. Kendra Scott gave 20 percent of all merchandise sold that night back to the Dallas Stars Foundation, and Bed Head provided blowouts and makeovers to attending guests.
All guests left the event with a bag of goodies from participating vendors, and a little more knowledge about what the Dallas Stars Foundation does to support the community. The night was a great opportunity to get involved and with the Foundation, as they serve as a positive force throughout the Dallas and Fort Worth area, helping the community’s children to lead quality lives and develop into contributing members of society. Hockey & Heels was a great success, grossing close to $30,000 for the Dallas Stars Foundation, thanks to wonderful sponsors and guests.
