This year is like no other in the history of the Crystal Charity Ball (CCB), Dallas’ largest fundraiser for children’s charities—because of one daunting challenge after another. But more of that later. First, a look at the woman at the helm, Ball Chair Tucker Enthoven—today’s stalwart leader who is meeting every issue at hand.
As we talk in her flower-filled, North Dallas home, being with Nan Self is a somewhat other-worldly experience. She emits serenity, peace and love by her very presence. Maybe it’s in part because of all that she has been through in preparing to write her book Forgiveness—Making Space for Grace, published in 2017.
Dr. Jennifer Blaine’s impressive array of degrees and honors are even more amazing when one learns that she is of the first generation in her family to graduate from college. Although neither of her parents were college graduates, she had it drilled into her as a child, “No one can take your education away from you.”
It has been 75 years since the Allied Armies liberated Hitler’s concentration camps during World War II. On April 4, 1945, the first one to be liberated was Ohrdruf, a labor concentration camp within the Buchenwald network. The world was not prepared for what Bill Kongable and his Regiment—the 354th Infantry Regiment Anti-Tank Company of the 89th Infantry Division, General Patton’s 3rd Army—discovered when they entered Ohrdruf.
“He is a legend,” one Houstonian said recently of Jim McIngvale. That seems to be a common sentiment. First, there is his business, Gallery Furniture, which is “Made in America,” with over-the-top promotions and tremendous success. Then there is his philanthropy, which elevated him some time ago into the “Beloved” category.
Tracey Brown is suited to running Amazing Place in ways that are very close to home. “My grandmother had dementia, and we watched my grandfather die of a heart attack, probably from the stress of caring for her.” And yet, even though Tracey had had a career in advertising and had been a volunteer leader in several non-profits, she still felt ill-equipped to work there with no health care training when she interviewed 15 years ago.
“My family’s home was destroyed in 1938 during Kristallnacht. Just days after that, my father and I were deported to Buchenwald.” Heinz Wallach
If one needs hope—and so many of us do during this time of COVID-19—one need look no further than at the life of Heinz…
The story of your life is one that is unique to you. Nobody else has lived your life, and no one else ever will. When the next generation and generations to come think of you, you want them to have access to a legacy of storytelling that lasts well into the future.
Most people would view Dr. Stephen Burgher’s career path as one filled with unbearable pressure. He has served as Chief of Emergency Medicine at the Dallas VA, assistant medical director at a level one trauma center, and chair of emergency preparedness at the local and regional level for various hospital systems—and he completed two volunteer military deployments in the Middle East, filling roughly the same medical role during each tour.
At The Tradition, our Community motivates and inspires residents to be better every day. We want our Community to grow and thrive, but at the end of the day, we want what is best for the individual and his or her family. In an effort to help guide your decision-making process, let’s talk about the difference between Assisted Living and in-home care.
Location, location, location. We know that the higher standard of living expected at Tradition Senior Living continues well beyond our front door. That is why our residents love our newest location, which is especially great for family visits, or even just a day out shopping.

A life free of monotonous housework means more time to focus on the finer things in life, and it’s your right to enjoy them all. The range of activities and amenities our community offers is sure to keep you entertained, whether your idea of a good time is watching a great movie with friends or sitting with a new book and a cup of tea.
