Fort Worth's Holiday Celebration at the City Club

Fort Worth's Holiday Celebration at the City Club

Fort Worth
Saturday, December 7, 2019 - 7:00pm

Fifty-four members and guests attended the Fort Worth Section's 2019 Holiday Dinner-Dance, which was held at the City Club in the heart of Downtown Fort Worth.  Arriving members were welcomed with an hors d’oeuvres reception, giving everyone a chance to catch up and get to know new folks.

We sat down to a nice 4-course dinner, which featured a tenderloin filet mignon as the main course.  After dinner, members tried their hand at winning prizes by playing “Benz Bowl.”  In this tabletop bowling tourney, teams earned points by knocking down as many pins as possible, with bonus points awarded for strikes and spares.  The three teams with the most points won prizes for each team member.  The proud winners were:

1st Place:   Team G - Dannie Hannon, Tom Jobe, Cecile de Jesus, Ana Graves, and Jorge Ordoñez.  Each member won a Mercedes-Benz key fob USB flash drive.

2nd Place:  Team C  - Scott Williamson, Mark Tirschler, Kathleen Basoco, Lois Parrott and Rick Spurgeon.  Each member won a Mercedes-Benz stainless steel thermal wine glass set.

3rd Place:  Team J  - Teresa Ordoñez, Ernest Borroel, Jerry Hathaway, Laura Hopkins and Bruce Parrott.  Each member won a Mercedes-Benz Swiss Army Knife made by Victorinox.

The rest of the evening was spent on the dance floor to the beat of music selections played by our DJs, Wen & Lily Grio.  The Holiday Celebration was a great finale to our 2019 event season.  Congratulations to Scott & Rhonda Williamson, who were declared Fort Worth Section 2019 Members of the Year, and special thanks to Kris Ikejiri for his photo contributions.
