Over 500 gathered at the Hyatt Regency Dallas for the 33rd Annual National Philanthropy Day Luncheon honoring many of the city’s finest who give selflessly in support of numerous worthy causes. During the luncheon, a special tribute presented by Carole Rylander honored three legends of philanthropy who passed away in 2018: Ruth Altshuler, Barbara James and Margaret McDermott. The Youth in Philanthropy award recipients were four seventh graders, all part of the Mistlecrew of Jingle Bell Mistletoe, who have sold mistletoe during the holidays since 2014. To date the group has raised nearly $150,000 for the North Texas Food Bank.
