Miss A Columnist

Dena Miller is the Dallas Editor for Miss A. She has been described by Style Network as a "Queen Bee". Formerly a glam rock scene Diva, Dena is now a Socialite on the Dallas philanthropy scene, specializing in Polo events that benefit women's and children's causes.

While never forgetting her small town roots from a Midwestern farming community in rural Missouri, she’s fit right in the “Big D” since coming here in 1984. After 11 years of promoting the music scene, hobnobbing with the most popular bands from coast to coast, she switched gears after meeting her husband at the first Polo match she ever attended. Always one for excitement, Polo became her new rock n roll.
With her marriage and new found passion for polo, came Philanthropy. Miller founded the Ladies Polo Auxiliary of Texas in 2005 with the goal of promoting the Sport of Kings in north Texas via charity events for causes that are close to her heart. To date the LPA has raised over $500,000 for causes such as domestic violence, children with serious medical needs, therapeutic horsemanship, the Polo Training Foundation, children’s advocacy and food drives for north Texas food Bank. When not working on her own events she is attending Charity luncheons and balls as well as volunteering at golf tournaments and Special Olympics events. She is a member of the USPA Equine Welfare committee and on Board of Dress For Succes Dallas.

Writing has been a lifetime passion of Dena’s. Besides working on a book that proceeds will benefit domestic violence organizations, and writing for two national polo magazines, is a frequent contributor to Dallas area publications, winning Best Contributor Award from Dallas Morning News Neighborsgo, she is co-authoring a book on the phenomenon of cyber bullying by adult women, referred to as Cyber Harrassment.

DFW Restaurant Week 2013 Presented By Central Market

2013 DFWRW Logo 1Back with a new name and pricing options to spotlight the stellar lineup of participating restaurants throughout the Metroplex, DFW Restaurant Week, formerly KRLD Restaurant Week, will once again be supporting the North Texas Food Bank and Lena Pope Home.

The culinary festivities will kick-off with Reservation Day on July 15, when the much-anticipated list of this year’s participating restaurants and menus will be unveiled. Diners enjoy a different scene and cuisine every day as they select from more than 125 top restaurants offering delicious three-course prix fixe dinners or the Cadillac Lunch Experience brought to you by Oak Farms Dairy, featuring three-course lunches at many locations. Twenty percent from each meal purchased will be donated to the charity partners. DFW Restaurant Week raised a record $760,000+ for the North Texas Food Bank  and Lena Pope Home last year alone.

“DFW Restaurant Week is one of our most popular and important fundraisers,” said Jan Pruitt, president and CEO of North Texas Food Bank. “It’s an ideal way to enjoy a fabulous meal at a deal, while also putting food on tables for children, families and seniors in need. The donation from just one dinner purchased during the campaign will provide up to 27 meals for hungry North Texans.”

Dedicated to offering a variety of fine dining experiences at the hottest restaurants for a great value, DFW Restaurant Week organizers say that the new $45 dinner option provides a way for chefs to feature specially priced menus that are representative of their restaurants’ established high-end cuisine, at a time when the food costs are at a premium. The sixteenth annual DFW Restaurant Week presented by Central Market is also sponsored by Metroplex Cadillac Dealers, GuideLive, Oak Farms Dairy, the Texas Beef Council, Sysco, Fresh Point, Glazers  (A by Acacia, Alamos, Edna Valley, Sterling, Barone Fini, Beringer, Josh Cellars, Stages Leap, Deutsch Family Wine and Spirits), CBS Radio and the American Institute of Wine & Food.
