Dallas Star Returns to the City to Fight Multiple Sclerosis

This Yellow Rose Gala is One Special Night

BY Caroline Lidl // 04.11.19

Dallas’ famed Yellow Rose Gala is this Saturday and it’s bringing some acting power with it.

Matthew Minick and Larry Lot are co-chairing the black-tie affair, which benefits multiple sclerosis research, at the Renaissance Dallas Hotel.

This year, guests will enjoy live music by Sir Earl Toon of Kool and the Gang, as well as a speed painting performance by Tim Decker. The John Malcolm Robertson Jr. family is receiving the Dee Wynne Courage Award.

Actress, producer and businesswoman Sheree J. Wilson is one star heading into town this weekend ready to “paint the town yellow for a cure.” Wilson is best known for her roles as Alex Cahill-Walker on Walker, Texas Ranger and April Stevens Ewing on the Dallas. She currently serves as president of Sandalphon Entertainment.

PaperCity caught up with the former Dallas star as she prepared for her trip to the television show’s namesake city for the gala. Wilson was kind enough to answer some questions.
