DALLAS June 11, 2016 – Cole Haan Dallas hosted a grand opening cocktail party on June 9 benefiting Ronald McDonald House of Dallas. The chic new location in Nordstrom Court on Level One, was alive with special guests shopping the brand’s modern classic oxfords, loafers and sandals, which flew off the shelves. One of the chairs of the Trains at NorthPark, Sara Friedman, was in attendance with Advisory Board Member Norma Pearson and her husband Robert. Lauren Romo from Cole Haan New York shopped with chief development officer Diane Fullingim.

The Ronald McDonald House of Dallas provides a home-away-from-home for 1,800 families each year while their children are receiving treatment for illnesses or injuries at Dallas hospitals. The House serves a critical need for families who stay there, all of whom come from distances greater than 40 miles away from Dallas. Although RMHD asks guest families to contribute only $15 per night, no family is ever turned away for an inability to pay.
