Celebrity Spotting Accomplished & Lynn McBee at Goldie Hawn Kristen Howell at Goldie Hawn Bill Goodwin & co-chair Margo Goodwin at Goldie Hawn PHOTOGRAPHY HOLT HAYNSWORTH AND DANIEL DRIENSKY Michelle Kinder Goldie Hawn Solid Goldie Private Benjamin? Cactus Flower? Shampoo? Overboard? The Salesmanship Club of Dallas' Evening with Goldie Hawn generated plenty of debate regarding everyone's favorite Goldie film. But once the Academy Award-winning actress took to the stage, all agreed her greatest talent may be helping children. More than 200 heavy hitters joined chairmen George Bramblett and Margo Goodwin at the home of Randy and Alan Engstrom to raise funds for the Salesmanship Club Youth and Family Centers' laboratory school. After a delectable dinner by Stephan Pyles Caters, a few good-natured jokes pertaining to red pants by president Charley Spradley and an inspiring speech from executive director designate Michelle Kinder (ravishing in a Lela Rose cocktail dress), Hawn chronicled her 10-year journey with The Hawn Foundation, an organization that develops classroom curriculum using social-emotional learning methods. Making the scene: Norm Bagwell, Sam Burford, David Calhoun, Nancy Dedman, Pete Geren, Susan McSherry, Anne Spradley, Micki Burns, and Becky Calos.

Alexa Cervantes at MTV Re:Define Kristie Ramirez and Tom Hoitsma at Legendary K8 Hardy and model at Legendary Success Dallas' elite headed to The Goss-Michael Foundation for MTV Re:Define, where 30 original works by artists such as Gérard Rancinan, Ralf Kaspers, Michael Craig-Martin, and Lee Baker went under the gavel. With Phillips de Pury & Company's Simon de Pury helming the bidding, hands began to soar, and so did prices — more than half of the pieces up for grabs exceeded their high estimate, including a Marc Quinn painting that sold for $260,000. In the mix: a live performance by Jonathan Tyler; a post-game personal tour of the Dallas Mavericks' arena and locker room, auctioned by Dirk Nowitzki; and a private concert peddled by Dallas Symphony Orchestra conductor Jaap van Zweden. The sold-out event, co-chaired by beauties Jessica Olsson-Nowitzki and Anna-Sophia van Zweden, generated more than $1 million for the MTV Staying Alive Foundation, a project that supports the fight against the spread of HIV and AIDS amongst young people. Frame-worthy attendees: Alban de Pury, Christie Allardyce, Jason Ziegler, Lita Asscher, Ed Bartlett, Paul Missing, Kristy Stubbs, Lauren Preston, and Ralph Anderl.

Hostess Laurie Sands Harrison opened her elegant Highland Park manse for Mission Olé, which generated more than $180,000 for Trinity River Mission in west Dallas. Props to co-chairs Kristi Bare and Nancy Gopez for realizing that guests would adore a non-black-tie evening; ladies wore fur vests and boots that suddenly felt very weather-appropriate. Our eyes immediately went to one girl: the effervescent Megan Flanagan, in black leather with a gorgeous yellow snakeskin clutch. In the crowd: honorary chairs Sandra and Henry Estess, Dolores Sosa Green, Simona Beal, Colleen Coyle, Dawn Spalding, and Kris Johnson. None were disappointed by the banter of master of ceremonies Steve Kemble, dinner from Wendy Krispin and to-die-for auction items that included Grammy tickets, a fishing trip and autographed sports memorabilia.

This multimedia visionary and self-proclaimed feminist created an anti-fashion fashion show at the Dallas Contemporary, with models strutting their stuff in outfits that pushed the beauty envelope. Co-chairs Lael Brodsky and Lisa Brown dedicated the evening to the memory of loyal patron Nancy Hanley and raised record-breaking funding in the process. Among the 400 aficionados: Peter Doroshenko, Marion Marshall, Melissa Muriel, Miriam Weber, Nancy Dedman, Brad Kelly, Shannon Mullins, Frank Francis, Jenny and John Kirtland, and Joanne and Mark Giambrone.
