Championing the fight against cancer, more than 1,000 galagoers showed up to the Hyatt Regency’s Landmark Ballroom to support a worthy cause.
THE PARTY Children’s Cancer Fund celebrated sweet memories at the Sweet 30th Anniversary Gala, raising more than $1.2 million toward cancer research. Festivities included a VIP cocktail hour, dinner and a fashion show of 22 pediatric cancer patients matched with local celeb escorts, from FC Dallas player Ryan Hollingshead to Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. producer Garry Brown. THE GUESTS Present and former Dallas Cowboys heavyweights Dak Prescott, Tony Romo, Roger Staubach and Troy Aikman all walked the runway. THE HIGHLIGHTS The night hit a bittersweet note when co-chair Hollie Siglin revealed that her father, battling stage 4 melanoma, had collapsed that morning, yet drove back the importance of the cause. Spirits lifted as the Jordan Kahn Orchestra brought the crowd to their feet, and Romo played DJ. -Krystal Sarna
