The annual Dream Achievers Luncheon, which celebrates local trailblazers and raises funds for Communities in Schools of the Dallas Region, takes place next month. This year’s event honors philanthropist Caroline Rose Hunt, the Hockaday grad who opened the Mansion on Turtle Creek in 1980.

Hunt is the daughter of oil tycoon H.L. Hunt, but she’s achieved plenty on her own. After graduating from Hockaday, she attended Mary Baldwin College and the University of Texas at Austin. All three schools have since recognized her as an “outstanding alumna.” Recently, Ladies Home Journal named her “One of the 50 Most Powerful Women in the USA.”  She’s even made time to pen two cookbooks and a novel.

The event will take place at the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden on Feb. 11 at 11:00 a.m. Tickets begin at $200, but there are numerous sponsorship opportunities available. Click here for details.
