Dallas 24 Hour Club welcomed 200 guests to its second annual Tea for Recovery, co-chaired by Dr. M. Joan Terry and her daughter Rev. Tiffany Wright, on Thursday, May 4, at the Dallas Woman’s Forum. The event benefitted Residents of Dallas 24 Hour Club, which has been providing transitional living, support services, and essential life skills for homeless alcoholics and addicts, so they can embrace long-term sobriety and become contributing and self-supporting members of the community since 1969.

The idea of Tea for Recovery was brewed in 2022 as a way to blend a love of high tea and a passion for the mission of Dallas 24 Hour Club. Dr. M. Joan Terry and her daughter, Rev. Tiffany Wright, knew the mission of Dallas 24 Hour Club was one they wanted to support after having a loved one come through the program. Tea for Recovery is now an annual event that creates a charmingly unique way to support the Residents of Dallas 24 Hour Club.

This year’s Tea for Recovery kicked off with Dr. Terry and Rev. Wright welcoming attendees, followed an inspiring invocation by Rev. Wright. With concurrent programs on two levels in the historic Alexander Mansion, Marsha Williamson, CEO of Dallas 24 Hour Club, kicked off the program on the first floor and shared more about The 24 and its programs.  

Marsha shared that in 2022, The 24 helped over 600 individuals get off the streets, find employment, reconnect with family members and embrace Recovery, all with a 31% success rate. She shared that one of her favorite parts of the work done at The 24 is reconnecting Residents with their loved ones and seeing them embrace a healthy, sober relationship together. Marsha noted that addiction affects not only the individual, but all of their family and friends as well, so it's an absolute joy for everyone at The 24 to see families reunite.

Marsha then introduced alumna Stephanie Crawford, who shared her experience about the programs and support offered by The 24 and how this impacted her life. Stephanie spoke about the vulnerability of being a homeless woman and how her life changed the moment she stepped foot in Dallas 24 Hour Club seven years ago. During her moving testimony, Stephanie expressed her gratitude to Marsha and The 24 for helping her reunite with her daughter and find peace in her life.

Simultaneously on the second level, Dallas 24 Hour Club Development Director Adrienne Santaularia welcomed the audience and shared a similar message about The 24 and its success in our community. She then invited Valerie Niebrand to share her testimony about her experience going through the program and her life now.

During the powerful testimonials from these former Residents, guests enjoyed an elegant luncheon featuring of a variety of tea sandwiches and quiche, along with delicious deserts. This year’s culinary team included Chef Jason Martin, Chef Shon Johnson-Tripp, Chef Eric Dreyer, and Terry Kranz.

Thanks to a generous supporter and friend of The 24 who underwrote the event expenses for Tea for Recovery, 100% of the monies raised will directly support The 24's mission of supporting its Residents. Along with fundraising success, Tea for Recovery provided an opportunity for the female Residents who were in attendance to enjoy fellowship with The 24's family-like community and have sober fun! Prior to the event, the women were treated with a gift card to shop for tea attire at Ross Dress, so they could step into the event in style! 

This year’s sponsors included:

Earl Grey Presenting Sponsor: A Friend and Supporter of The 24

Matthews Southwest and South Side on Lamar held a celebration to commemorate a permanent installation honoring the memory of local music icon Bill Wisener of Bill’s Records, which was created by Dallas-based artist Jennifer Morgan, on Thursday, April 27. The event kicked off with a cocktail reception and remarks from Jack Matthews, president of Matthews Southwest and developer in The Cedars, along with creator Jennifer Morgan.

Jennifer recently completed the mixed-media installation centered around a portrait of Bill that also featured memorabilia from Bill’s Records, including: concert posters, photos (some autographed by notable celebrities), personal notes, tchotchkes, and of course, records. She spoke at the unveiling about the difficulty in choosing from among the many special pieces of memorabilia, especially from the iconic collage behind the counter of Bill’s Records that included personal and heartfelt notes to Bill, and is the reason for the green balcony in the installation.

“I had a perfect timing moment with Bill one night when I was working on a different mural in the basement [of South Side on Lamar]. He shuffled by in the wee hours and passed as I was stepping back to evaluate if I was finished or should add more, a difficult crossroads for an artist... making the call to walk away. Unprompted, he said, ‘I like this and all the negative space that you left in the composition,’ as if to vocalize the answer to the question in my head,” Jennifer said.

While creating the mural in the installation, people strolling through the artist quarters would regularly stop to chat with Jennifer and share their own personal connection to Bill or how he touched their life in some way. He was everyone's ray of sunshine, and the celebration brought everyone together to honor Bill’s legacy.

Members of Bill’s family including Jennifer, Atticus, and Barbara Wisener attended the celebration, along with Dallas City Council member Jesse Moreno, and current and past residents of South Side on Lamar who had a connection to Bill. Guests included: Justin Parscale, Ben Mackey, Gina Norris, Anne Bothwell and Kent Barker, Cris Worley, Jeffrey Yarborough, David Card, Melanie Ferguson, and others.

DALLAS – April 24, 2023 Park Cities resident Shannon Jud recently opened Kat + Noelle, a family owned and operated boutique located in The Pavilion on Lovers Lane, offering a unique, curated collection of resort-inspired women’s apparel and accessories, fragrances, home décor, and gifts. The boutique is named after Shannons’s two daughters, Hannah Katherine and Harper Noelle, who frequent the shop if they aren’t found working there. 

Kat + Noelle has been a lifelong dream for Shannon. After leaving corporate America five years ago with little to no retail experience but driven by her love of fashion, shopping, and her own personal, unique style, Shannon started her journey in the retail industry.  In 2018, Shannon and her husband, Tom, bought the popular upscale resale shop, Clothes Circuit, located in Preston Center. Together, they updated the more than 35-year-old shop and overhauled the consignment area. This endeavor allowed Shannon to pair her love of fashion and retail with her business acumen from her corporate days. Yearning for her next retail adventure, Shannon took the leap into retail once again with Kat + Noelle, which opened in January 2023.

The beautifully appointed boutique offers a thoughtfully curated collection of contemporary ready-to-wear focused on women-owned and sustainably smart brands offering a mix of new, popular, and mostly international designers. A few notable brands found at Kat + Noelle include: Custommade, Bamboliera, Beatrice b, De Loreta, Tallulah & Hope, No Pise La Grama, Gissa Bicalho, Neubyrne, Laura Foote, Nette, Poolside, The Jacksons London, The Wolfgang, VIETRI, and Ortigia Sicilia.

“We carry brands you won’t find anywhere else and offer a boutique shopping experience that is end-to-end for our fashion-forward clients, with clothing ranging from swimwear to cocktail and a wide array of amazing accessories such as footwear, handbags, and jewelry,” Shannon said. “In addition, we carry fragrant candles, popular coffee-table books, glassware, and home décor accessories that can be packaged to create a beautiful, thoughtful gift for that special someone. As a lifestyle boutique, we want to be a go-to spot where people of all ages can shop for everything they need, whether it is a knock-out outfit for a special occasion, a one-of-a-kind gift, or outfits for a week-long vacation.”

When thinking back on why she was inspired to open Kat + Noelle, Shannon added,  

“I was feeling like Dallas can be saturated with the same looks and styles. My goal is to provide an exceptional shopping experience for our customers so that each time they visit Kat + Noelle, they see new and different additions to our collections of brands, designers, and artisans. My hope is that Kat + Noelle brings something special to Dallas as the true destination boutique, and when you shop with us, you are sure to walk out with true treasures that will stand out.” 

Located at 5710 West Lovers Lane, Suite 102, Dallas, Texas, 75209, Kat + Noelle is open Monday through Wednesday from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m., Thursday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Sunday from 12 to 4 p.m. To shop online or for more information, visit, and follow @katnoelle_boutique on Instagram to stay up-to-date with the latest arrivals.
