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.

On Monday, September 9 the downtown Dallas Ritz Carlton hosts the annual Souper 100 Ladies Tea. The Souper 100 is a group of 100 ladies who support the SoupMobile’s missions of ‘Feeding and Sheltering’ the homeless and are passionate for serving Christ. Guests will be treated to complimentary tea and crumpets and enjoy a special performance by  the Dallas International Street Church Choir. Valet is complimentary for Souper 100 ladies, so be sure to tell them who you are . Ordained minister and former Chaplain at the prestigious West Point Military Academy, SoupMobile Chaplain John Bolyan, M. Div. will be on hand and Keynote speaker will be Doris Williams, co-owner of Williams Chicken. Williams Chicken is a well-known restaurant business operating in the Dallas area with more than 40 locations. Doris and her husband Hiawatha founded Williams Chicken 26 years ago on a wing and a lot of prayers, and with God’s blessing have expanded into a successful business, employing hundreds of people and serving up great food.

The SoupMobile is a mobile soup kitchen that feeds and shelters the homeless. As a faith-based nonprofit, they serve over 200,000 meals per year and shelter the homeless in their eight group homes. Their Mission Statement is three simple words spoken by Jesus: “Feed my sheep.” David Timothy (a.k.a. the SoupMan) founded The SoupMobile in 2003. His vision was to start a traditional soup kitchen where the homeless could come to eat. However, after assessing the needs of Dallas area homeless population, David realized that a mobile soup kitchen would be more effective. Because the homeless have limited access to transportation, the SoupMan and his fabulous Soup Team serve meals to them where they gather. The SoupMobile serves a complete hot, hearty and healthy meal to the homeless every weekday, year round, rain or shine and even on holidays. Chef’s prepare each meal with ‘love’ as the magic ingredient. As the SoupMobile approaches each of its feeding stops, the SoupMan blasts the theme from Rocky, his favorite movie, over the van’s loudspeaker system. Heard for miles around, this music tells the homeless that it’s time for lunch. The SoupMan believes that there’s a little bit of Rocky in all of us. He also believes that in each one of us resides the spirit and the passion to triumph and be the champion of our own lives! The SoupMobile serves over 200,000 meals per year,  literally on the front lines of the war against hunger in the Dallas area.
