Peace, Love, and Dragons


The Carroll Education Foundation’s 18th-annual Culinary Celebration takes place September 6 at The Hilton Southlake Town Square. Sponsored in part by Ebby Halliday Realtors, this much-anticipated event will feature dozens of metroplex chefs, specialty wines and cocktails, live and silent auctions, a big board and more to raise money to support the children and teachers of the Southlake Carroll Independent School District. This year’s theme, a tribute to the ’70s, is “Peace, Love, Dragons.”


Ebby Southlake Associate Kelli Henderson is the 2014 Chair of the Carroll Education Foundation. Henderson, who has two children who graduated from Southlake Carroll schools, has directly seen the benefits of the award-winning district. She has been an active member of CEF since 2005.


The 2013 Culinary Celebration raised more than $220,000, all of which went toward teacher grants and student scholarships benefiting the children of the Carroll Independent School District.


Tickets to the 2014 Culinary Celebration, priced at $100 each or $150 per couple, are available at
