Accessible Luxury showcases the best food, cars and fashion in Dallas but the event brings out so much more. The event brings together some of Dallas’ biggest movers and shakers that support the Texas Scottish Rite Hospital. Park Place holds the event each year so guests have the opportunity to venture through different rooms of the dealership to mix and mingle.
Each year there is a fabulous fashion show that you do not want to miss. The show is produced by the best in Dallas and they always know how to add a fun twist to keep the audience on their toes. This years show had all age models that incorporated mens wear as well as kids. As much as I love watching runway shoes, it’s always nice to have some variety and Accessible Luxury did just that!
If you’re a foodie, Accessible Luxury offers a little bit of everything from appetizers to desserts. Some of the restaurants included Souk, Chino, Taverna, Nick & Sams and more. One of my favorite dishes I had was a Scallop BLT from Trulucks. I wanted to eat it so bad that I forgot to take a picture but good news – we have a video of how to make it!
One of the best part of the night was being able to spend time with one of my best friends who I don’t get to see often. We were able to not only catch up but enjoy some of the finest items that Dallas has to offer.
As amazing as this event is, the reason that we participate every single year is because we love Texas Scottish Rite Hospital. If you are unfamiliar, Texas Scottish Rite Hospital is a pediatric center for the treatment of orthopedic conditions, certain related neurological disorders and learning disorders, such as dyslexia. The hospital was established in 1921 when a group of Texas Masons approached Dallas’ first orthopedic surgeon Dr. W. B. Carrell about caring for children with polio regardless of the family’s ability to pay. With the introduction of the Salk and Sabin vaccines in the mid-1950s, which virtually eradicated polio in the Western Hemisphere, TSRHC broadened its focus to other orthopedic conditions.
This amazing hospital has treated more than 235,000 children since its inception, with more than 40,000 clinic visits each year regardless of the family’s’ financial situation. That means whether the family has insurance, doesn’t have insurance, can make payments or not, they will not be turned away! The reason Texas Scottish Rite Hospital is able to do this is because of it’s generous sponsors and events like Accessible Luxury. If you haven’t been up to Texas Scottish Rite Hospital, I urge you to give them a visit and take a tour. It’s amazing to see what they are doing for children and many families throughout the country. To arrange for a tour for your group, contact the hospital’s Volunteer Services department at (214) 559-7825 or (800) 421-1121, ext. 7825.
If you would like to give back, Texas Scottish Rite Hospital has many volunteer opportunities! Just give them a call and they will be happy to work with you. I hope you’ll join me next year at Accessible Luxury!
