It was all about poodle skirts and jukeboxes when The Center Foundation held a diner-themed blowout for its 12th Annual Luncheon, at River Oaks Country Club. Chairman Elizabeth DeLuca, along with Amy Miller, Elizabeth Vail, and Angie Holloway, treated guests to a hand-jiving menu and towering table centerpieces of fruit pies, which were available for purchase. Pulitzer Prize-winning author Buzz Bissinger, who is best known for his book Friday Night Lights, gave an uplifting speech. A raffle followed the ’50s fare. Proceeds benefitted The Center’s continued efforts to help adults with developmental disabilities. Lindy hopping: Caroline Miller, Rosemary Schatzman, Manizeh Gruber, foundation president James Pavlik, Kathryn Smith, Stephanie Brown, Michael Lang, and Center President Bill Coorsh, with wife Leah.
