Linda and Paige Hardison, 2014 Gala Co-Chairs

By May 10, 2014Blog, Events, News

momandmeMeet the 2014 co-chairs for our annual LEAP Gala, Linda and Paige Hardison, an energetic mother-daughter duo who love LEAP! Linda stays fit and maintains her energy by running laps with her hunting dogs, so she can eat as many nachos as she possibly can! She is currently studying Romans in her Community Bible Study; her favorite verse is Romans 8:31, “What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?” Linda’s daughter, Paige, became a patient of Dr. Hobar’s approximately ten years ago. Since then, God has worked LEAP into their lives. Paige enjoys golfing with her family and volunteering for Young Texans Against Cancer with her older sister, Holly. Paige’s favorite Bible verse is Isaiah 40:31, “But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.” On gorgeous sunny days, Paige loves spending time with her two dogs and being with friends. She has been in the event planning industry for almost three years, and Paige has begun her own boutique event firm this year! Linda and Paige have been putting in the miles this year, traveling to Cabo, Aspen,  and soon to Zimbabwe with the LEAP team! More updates on the latter in June.Preparing for the LEAP Gala has been enormously enjoyable with these two fun-loving co-chairs. Many planning meetings have already been held, and committees are underway to ensure a wonderful annual event, LEAP Around The World, on the evening of Thursday, October 2, 2014, held at 3015 at Trinity Groves. There will be a VIP pre-event gathering, wonderful food prepared by celebrity chef Sharon van Meter, and an auction. It will be a lively, dynamic event as this venue is already home to many memorable events located at the base of Dallas’ newest landmark, the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge, which offers a stunning view of the skyline. So mark your calendars!
