Miss A Columnist

Pam Renee is an original WHO DAT LOUISIANA girl, now dwelling in downtown Dallas, which isn’t so bad of a distance when the craving for a spicy Creole dish, warm powdered beignets, or her favorite drive-thru daiquiri spot cannot be shaken. Described as a vogue-a-holic by default, a socialite by nature, and a shoe-preneur by trade, she delights in the unexpected, has a tongue in cheek approach to tradition, never wears just anything, miscellaneous is her favorite category, and lastly – is easily spoiled by all things fabulous and swanky.
Pam loves the Big D (Dallas) because there is always a wide and various array of things available to do, so it has become the norm for her to try to be in two, three, maybe four places in one evening when her calendar gets really tight. She has unintentionally made a name for herself by being the GO TO person for friends, family, (sometimes strangers) desiring something unique, something fabulous, something chic, to attend, stay, entertain, dine, wine, network, or shop.
If you have a Dallas charity or cultural event, restaurant, boutique, spa, or salon you would like covered on Miss A, please contact Pam at pamreneepr@yahoo.com.

Gardner published his autobiography, The Pursuit of Happyness, out of a desire to shed light on these universal issues and show they do not have to define you. The book became a New York Times bestseller and later inspired the movie The Pursuit of Happyness”. Will Smith starred as Gardner and received Academy Award, Golden Globe and Screen Actor Guild nominations for his performance.

Chairs of the luncheon event are Dawn Budner and Tina Wasserman. Committee members include Regina Bruce, Sheila Chapman, Deborah Gilbert and Julie Vicic. Vogel Alcove provides daycare for homeless children age 6 weeks to 6 years and works hand-in-hand with many other agencies who provide safe, happy and educational environments and assistance to the parents of these kids.
