Legends and Leaders: Eat Dinner with Kent Rathbun, Matt McCallister, Stephan Pyles, and Paula Lambert

Meaders Moore Ozarow is the owner of Empire Baking Co., but in her spare time, she volunteers for Meals on Wheels twice a month. The Visiting Nurses Association, which is the umbrella organization over Meals on Wheels, is putting on a dinner event called “Legends and Leaders” on Thursday, April 4, at the Fairmont Hotel from 7 to 10 p.m.

I am on the board of VNA – Visiting Nurses Association (which administers Meals on Wheels and Hospice) and they are changing their primary fundraiser. We are inviting Dallas Legends and Leaders and having them host a table for fun and informative conversation with attendees who would enjoy sitting and visiting with them.

Some of these legends and leaders, she tells me, will include Kris Boyd, Stan Richards, Meredyth Cole, Scott Griggs, Veletta Forsythe Lill, Honorable Tom Leppert, Lynn McBee, Mayor Mike Rawlings, and Dr. Maxwell Anderson (just to name a few).

As for food legends in Dallas, the VNA plans to host tables with Kent Rathbun (Rathbun’s Blue Plate Kitchen), Matt McCallister (Ft33), Stephan Pyles (Stephan Pyles), and Paula Lambert (Mozz Co.). Ozarow says, “It’s kind of like a dinner party with a fantasy guest.” I’m sure you guys have always wanted to pry open the minds of these Dallas movers and shakers. A seat at the dinner costs between $250 and $1000, but the money goes toward a good cause: the Meals on Wheels and Hospice program.
