PC Moment: You can always tell the holiday season has hit once the Dallas-area Chi Omega Alumnae Association starts setting up shop for its Christmas Market. Celebrating the 38th year for the annual fund-raiser — also marking their largest philanthropic event in the country — the four-day extravaganza offers unique jewelry, home decor, fashion and food. This year, more than 10,500 eager shoppers made their way to the Candy Christmas-themed event, which helped exceed $7 million in total giving for the Greek organization.
