It’s always one of those afternoons where everyone in the room deeply connects with the cause. This season’s Child Advocates Angels of Hope Luncheon was no exception, chaired by it-girls Lucinda Loya and Stephanie Perkins and honoring Linda Messner, a lifetime member of the Friends of Child Advocates and a fund-raiser committed to women’s and children’s causes for 35 years. The day raised a chart-topping $350,000 plus, allowing CA to serve 212 children in Harris County through their court-appointed advocates. Neiman Marcus provided the wow to the wintry day, choreographing a fashion show featuring the lady-like Rena Lange’s Spring 2012 collection, which drew applause from the crowd of 600. Among the leading ladies and dashing gents: NM main man Bob Devlin; Rena Lange’s new creative director, Karsten Fielitz; Messner’s son Jalin Casares, who movingly presented the award to his mom; new mom and authoress Joanna Barrett; Vanessa Sendukas; Rosemary Schatzman; Phyllis Williams; Child Advocates CEO Sonya Galvan and Guild manager/development guru Marla Endieveri; Merele Yarborough; Marcy Taub Wessel; Liz Glanville, whose DeVille Fine Jewelry donated a nice bauble to the raffle, won by Kendall Solé; Farhana Ahmed; and Audi’s Jared Lang with past honoree Page Parkes-Eveleth, the pair co-hosting a table for the teens served by CA.
