The public is invited to attend the Doris Daniely High Tea Saturday Feb. 26 at the Dallas Arboretum from 2-4 p.m.. The fundraiser is $45 per person or $420 for a table for 10.

Keynote speaker Laura Leigh Schakosky is a well-known celebrity makeup artist who has worked with the likes of Martha Stewart, Donald Trump, Nicole Kidman, Shacquille O’Neil and Troy Aikman, to name a few. Lantana, an all-girl country rock trio, will provide entertainment.

Reserve your tickets before the week’s end—they are going fast!
