NorthPark Center has named 13 high-profile individuals as 2020 Ambassadors as part of its mission to support key area nonprofits.

Since its inception in 2017, the Ambassador program has raised awareness and funds for more than 40 charities in social and health services and the arts. It augments multiple other long-running philanthropic programs at NorthPark.

All NorthPark Ambassadors are prominent individuals who consider it a personal duty to help make Dallas a better place for all. They will host various charitable initiatives at NorthPark, which attracts some 26 million visitors each year.

Big-hearted 2020 Ambassadors include lifestyle expert Kimberly Schlegel Whitman, who has served all four years in the program. Her 2020 charity partner is Dec My Room, which personalizes and brightens the hospital rooms of children who are in for long stays.

Geoffroy van Raemdonck, chief executive officer of Neiman Marcus Group, steps up as a first-time Ambassador with his husband, Italian nobleman Alvise Orsini, to boost the Dallas Symphony Orchestra.

The 2020 NorthPark Ambassador class includes three ball chairs who, naturally, will be supporting their respective charities.

They are Tucker Enthoven, chair of the 2020 Crystal Charity Ball, which raises millions of dollars annually for children’s causes, and Diana Hamilton and Heather Randall, co-chairs of this year’s Cattle Baron’s Ball, the nation’s largest one-night fundraiser for the American Cancer Society.

The team also sports Dallas Mavericks CEO Cynthia Marshall partnered with Dallas CASA, and Mavs forward Dwight Powell on behalf of Dwight Powell Children and Family Support Fund at Harold C. Simmons Comprehensive Cancer Center at UT Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas.

Super chic Polyphonic Spree singer Jenny Kirtland will be promoting Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts, and BeautyBio entrepreneur and glamour gal Jamie O’Banion is linked with Children’s Cancer Fund and Children’s Health.

In addition, NBC5 news anchor Meredith Land will aid The Salvation Army; philanthropist and fashion plate Cate Ford will advance Ronald McDonald House of Dallas and mother of three Kate Dykes, wife of Southern Methodist University football head coach Sonny Dykes, will give an assist to Ronald McDonald House of Dallas.

Stay tuned to see what special events each Ambassador brings to NorthPark.
