– The Trains at NorthPark 2014 co-chairs, Jamie Singer and Tia Wynne, are already on a roll with this major holiday fundraiser, with the proceeds benefiting the Ronald McDonald House of Dallas. On May 14, they arranged for a kickoff party at Kira Plastinina’s LUBLU boutique in the Plaza at Preston Center where more than 60 guests attended, sipped champagne and shopped Plastinina’s gorgeous, ultra-feminine designs with a percentage of proceeds benefiting the House. Guests were greeted by handsome waiters serving champagne. While shopping, they noshed on shrimp, rollups, fruit and macaroons.


During the remarks, Jill Cumnock, CEO of Ronald McDonald House of Dallas, thanked Kira for hosting such an important fundraiser that raises nearly a third of the budget for the House. Cumnock also announced the 2014 Honorary Trains Co-Chairs Dr. Jeffrey Fearon, and his lovely wife, Regen. Dr. Fearon, a craniofacial surgeon, has treated many children who have stayed at the House.


Singer announced that Bank of Texas was returning for its sixth year as presenting sponsor. Wynne thanked the committee, the sponsors and the board members and announced the dates for this year’s exhibit: Nov. 22, 2014 through Jan. 4, 2015.


Pat Brockette, Senior Vice President of Corporate Banking for Bank of Texas, remarked, “Bank of Texas believes in the important work that Ronald McDonald House of Dallas does in the community, and we are once again proud to be the presenting sponsor.”


The most elaborate miniature toy trains exhibit in Texas, The Trains at NorthPark includes trains rolling across 1,600 feet of track on a journey across America. Many families visit The Trains at NorthPark each season as part of their holiday tradition.
