PC Moment: Patrons strolled through the gardens under a beautiful shaded allée of trees. They sipped on their “garden mules” and enjoyed hors d’oeuvres as they browsed the fabulous items in this year’s silent auction. After placing bids, they were greeted with a warm welcome and moving notes on the CISD cause and the differences being made in Dallas-area children’s lives.
After a delightful dinner in the gardens, enthusiastic patrons called out donations and bids in a live auction with items including a signed guitar by Sir Paul McCartney.
