Black Tie International:
2011 Salvation Army Luncheon Raises Record $507,000

Linda McReynolds, Barbara Bush & Brenda DeVore

Linda McReynolds, Barbara Bush & Brenda DeVore


Reflections on Style and Chic Boutique a Great Combination



HOUSTON, TEXAS – July 5, 2011 – Chair Linda McReynolds was ecstatic about the success of the 2011 Salvation Army Luncheon, Reflections on Style.  The Chic Boutique, featuring “gently worn” or new designer clothes for sale, brought in more than $131,000 to add to the table sales.  The total intake of $507,000 broke all previous records for the annual luncheon.  The honoree for this year’s luncheon was former First Lady Barbara Bush.  As usual, Mrs. Bush wowed the crowd with her delicious sense of humor, i.e. “So George said, ‘How come no one asked you to rummage through your closet for clothes for this event?’”  She also spoke passionately about her causes:  literacy, education, and the Salvation Army.


Chair McReynolds had a fleet of very competent lieutenants helping her put on the dazzling show.  Chic Boutique co-chairs were Suzie Conway and Debbie Rogers, coutour co-chairs were Lilly Andress and Carol Sharpe, and the after sale co-chairs were Tara Conley and Maggie Smith.


Lenny Matuszewski and Tamara Klosz Bonar put together a stunning fashion show from some of the big ticket items donated by those big-hearted society ladies.


Luminaries attending included Joanne King Herring, Becca Cason Thrash, Salvation Army Auxiliary president Brenda DeVore, Lynn Wyatt, Jeanie Kilroy, Susan Baker, Ann Duncan, and
Margaret Love
