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 April 19, 2015, the Wells Fargo Dallas Symphony Derby was held at Lone Star Park in Grand Prairie. This marks the 11th year the Dallas Symphony Orchestra League has partnered with title sponsor Wells Fargo and the 18th year it has partnered with presenting sponsor Lone Star Park for an exciting fundraising event. The Derby brought the atmosphere of the famous Kentucky Derby to Dallas, complete with hats, horses and mint juleps. Guests enjoyed an extensive buffet in the Silks Dining Room overlooking the final turn and finish line of the track, for the best view of the races. Live auctions were held in between each horse race, while silent auction items were bid on all day.  Lee Bailey and Doris Jacobs served as Honorary Chairs. Courtney Nall and Susan Walker were the Derby Co-Chairs and Dixie Marshall is the DSOL President. Proceeds from the Wells Fargo Derby benefit the Dallas Symphony’s education and outreach programs.
