Kappa Alpha Theta’s Mid-Cities alumnae chapter will host its fifth Ruby Slipper Soiree on Thursday, February 1, from 5:30 to 8 p.m. at The Marq in Southlake. All proceeds will benefit CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) of Tarrant County.

At this year’s event, guests will enjoy an array of hearty appetizers prepared by award-
winning chef, Charles Youts, and The Classic at Roanoke. A shoe and accessory
fashion show will follow, featuring designs from returning style partners Brighton, Elaine
Turner, Kendra Scott and Premier Designs, modeled by Texas Christian University
(TCU) Thetas.

Brighton, Elaine Turner, Kendra Scott and Premier Designs will sell pieces from their
collections at the event and donate 20 percent of all earnings to CASA.
Throughout the evening, guests will have an opportunity to win raffle prizes and sample
either “Candy Cane,” a proprietary vodka and rum cocktail infused with white chocolate,
cream and fresh peppermint or Latte Love from Candy’s
Signature Cocktails.

Raffle prizes include gifts from style partners Brighton, Elaine Turner, Kendra Scott and Premier Designs. In addition, presenting sponsor Cosmetic & Family Dentistry of North Texas has assembled a $450 gift basket with ZOOM! teeth whitening. 

A brief program will feature Colleyville resident Elizabeth Mattson, who will discuss her
experiences as a CASA advocate working directly with foster children in Tarrant County
and the benefits advocates can offer these children. 

“With our last Ruby Slipper Soirée, we more than doubled our donation to CASA thanks
to our amazing style partners, generous sponsors and amazing guests,” said Lisa
Hernandez, Ruby Sipper Soiree event co-chair and event founder. “This year we hope to
match or even exceed our nearly $23,000 in revenue for such a great local cause.”
