Since our last issue, we’ve been busy kicking off 2013 with a bang and socializing with the community of Northwest Arkansas at some great philanthropic events. Every year always starts slowly, and this year was no exception. But before we knew it, event season was in full swing. Here is a little taste of what we’ve been up to over the last few months . . .

The year kicked off with the Ozark Guidance Walk a Mile in My Shoes. . . Sale. We stopped by the VIP pre-sale at Arvest Ballpark to peruse the selection of shoes and handbags being sold for the mental health organization. That same weekend was also the Razorback Foundation Red Tie Dinner, where Razorback student athletes were recognized for their achievements. With more interactive events, Literacy Council of Benton County hosted its annual Scrabble Wars and the Boys and Girls Club of Benton County held a Texas Hold’em Tournament.

At the beginning of February, we donned our masks for the Walton Arts Center’s Masquerade Ball. This masked affair is always a highlight of the year, with great food and entertainment on Baum Walker Stage to support arts education in our community. The following week, the Jackson L. Graves Foundation hosted its annual chocolate and wine-pairing event, Ooh! La, la! featuring creations by Chef Miles James and Chef Vince Pianalto. Sticking with the wine dinner theme, the NWA Wine Opener, an evening of fabulous wines benefiting the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation happened just a week later.

6

Also in February, St. Vincent de Paul School hosted its largest fundraiser of the year, Tapas and Tinis featuring signature martinis and our favorite auctions of the year. That same evening, the Arts Center of the Ozarks changed up their annual event with a new theme—the Flappers and Fellas Ball was a rip-roaring good time.

In Bentonville, the Angel Gala for Havenwood took over the DoubleTree Guest Suites to raise funds for the organization’s transitional housing program for single parents and children. The next day Arkansas Advocates for Children and Families served up specialty soups, gumbos and chili at Soup Sunday. United Way of Northwest Arkansas held its inaugural Bags for Books Luncheon in the first week of March to raise funds for Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library. REO Speedwagon brought down the house at the American Diabetes Association’s Kiss a Pig Gala—where Ben Thankachan, Chuck Fehlig and Karen Gray all got the honor of kissing this year’s baby pig at the sold out event.

11

To kick off one of our favorite weeks of the year, NWA Fashion Week, we co-hosted a Launch Party at Prime Lounge with L’Oreal and Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse Rogers. The Chancellor Hotel in Fayetteville was taken over by NWA Fashion Week and we didn’t miss a beat. Some of our favorite boutiques and retailers hit the runway and put on quite a display of fashion for philanthropy at

the second annual event. Our favorite shows included Savoir-Faire, The Independent, Masons, Maude, Southern Vintage and of course Lola and Luxe’s Strut for a Mutt which featured puppies so cute they almost stole the show away from the actual fashions on display. Almost. On Thursday night, we snuck away from Fashion Week to attend Ozark Literacy Council’s auction of the Pigshibition pigs at the Piggies Go to Market event. Before March came to a close, we hunted for golden eggs at the Hershey’s Easter Egg Hunt which raised funds and awareness for the Northwest Arkansas Children’s Shelter. We stopped by the Youth of the Year event at the John Q. Hammons Center to see the incredible impact the Boys and Girls Club of Benton County is making in the futures of children in our area. To close out the month, the Miller McNeil Woodruff Foundation raised awareness and funds for research of Spinal Muscular Atrophy at Cupcakes & Cocktails, where Miller supporters were out in full force to celebrate his life.

Off to the races

Though we’re a long way from Churchill Downs, that won’t stop us from reveling the first weekend of May in honor of the “most exciting two minutes in sports”. The Kentucky Derby is the ultimate southern tradition and although we won’t be taking part in Louisville, we’ll be channeling the infield and throwing a fete of our own to celebrate our southern roots.

Champing at the bit

Practice your rendition of “My Old Kentucky Home,” which is traditionally played during the Derby post parade and be ready to sing loud and clear. Save your money to bet on your favorite horse and be sure to work on your wagering strategy. Should you bet on the long shot or stick with the favorite? If you’re like us, it’s all in the name.

Down the stretch

Don your finest derby dress. Leave the racing silks to the jockeys and dig out your pastels and seersucker. It’s springtime in the South, after all. Ladies, don’t forget your derby hat. Pull out all the stops on your millinery creation. Consider the Derby your chance to take a risk and flaunt your fashionable fascinator with pride.

And they’re off

On Derby Day, you can expect a photo finish. We’re serving up the ultimate southern treat, Coca Cola Cake. This deliciously rich chocolate cake is sure to please the crowd. Mint Juleps will be generously poured and sipped throughout the day. The big race may only last a minute or two, but we’ll be celebrating all night long, regardless of how our horses fared—we’re all winners here. We’ll see you in the Winners Circle. Thank you to Pratt Place Barn for allowing us to use their facility and play with their beautiful horses.

If you’re looking to have fun and wouldn’t mind watching some golf at the same time, don’t miss happy hour at the loudest hole on the LPGA tour. If you’re a fan of golf who would love the chance to see the best players in their sport, get to the greens early and stay late so you don’t miss a minute of the action.

For the Family

DON’T LEAVE THE KIDS AT HOME— BRING THEM ALONG FOR FUN FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY. The Walmart NW Arkansas Championship presented by P&G is a destination for people of all ages. The week leading up to the tournament offers several events for the community, but of course the highlight of the week is the official tournament play—happening Friday, Saturday and Sunday. As in years past, children ages 17 and under get into the tournament free with a ticketed adult, making the Walmart NW Arkansas Championship presented by P&G a premiere destination for local families looking for an enjoyable and unique experience in their own backyard. If you stop by the course, don’t miss the Dove Kid’s Center for Families. This activity zone found by the 16th green is returning for another action packed weekend and is the perfect place to take the kids. The Dove Kid’s Center features interactive areas set up to entertain the little ones with a bounce house and miniature golf for the next generation of professional golfers, arts and crafts, putt-putt holes and even healthy snacks for the kids. LPGA players will stop by the Dove Kid’s Center to sign autographs for their fans. Of course, a hot summer day isn’t complete without ice cream and at the Dove Kid’s Center there is sure to be plenty. The Dove Ice Cream truck will be on hand all weekend to hand out free sweet treats and keep the kids (and their parents) cool. Earlier in the week, the tournament will once again team up with Pantene Beautiful Lengths to celebrate women’s health. Volunteer hair donors from the community and maybe even an LPGA tour professional or two will donate eight inches of hair to create free, high-quality wigs for women who have lost their hair due to cancer treatment. For the sixth year, Pantene, the LPGA tour and the Walmart NW Arkansas Championship presented by P&G will hold the cutting event at the John Q. Hammons Center on Wednesday of tournament week. Over the years, the event has grown dramatically and increased participants, with over 200 donors last year alone. In total, over 270,000 ponytails have been collected to help create 18,000 wigs for women dealing with cancer. To find out more about getting involved with Pantene Beautiful Lengths or to sign up to donate your hair, visit www.beautifullengthsnwa.com.

For the Golf Fan

DIEHARD GOLFERS AND FANS OF THE GAME WILL BE RIGHT AT HOME AT THIS WORLD-CLASS EVENT. The Walmart NW Arkansas Championship presented by P&G will undoubtedly once again feature a strong field of world-class golfers vying to compete for the top prize. The tournament and its surroundings events are unmatched in this region and offer an intimate look at the professional world of golf for the Northwest Arkansas community and golf fans alike. Positioned a week before the U.S. Women’s Open, the Walmart NW Arkansas Championship presented by P&G will be an intense playing field once again this year. The competition will be tight with the tour’s best players hitting the greens in Northwest Arkansas and vying for what is always a top purse on the LPGA tour. Past winners of the tournament include Stacy Lewis, two-time winner Yani Tseng and last year’s winner Ai Miyazato—all top 10 ranked players this year. Though the week of events offer the LPGA players the chance to let loose and have fun before the tournament, by the weekend they are down to business and ready to fight for the top spot and the trophy on Sunday. You can see them daily at the driving range and on the practice putting green, working tirelessly to perfect their game. Follow your favorite golfer around the course for a round or two and you’ll have the opportunity to watch her in action and under pressure to make her best drive down the fairway or drop the perfect putt. Hang out in Autograph Alley by the Pinnacle Clubhouse to collect autographs from the players and chat with them after their rounds. Fan participation at the Walmart NW Arkansas Championship presented by P&G is top notch and just one of the aspects that makes this tournament a hole-in-one.

Without the support of its sponsors and the community of Northwest Arkansas, the Walmart NW Arkansas Championship presented by P&G wouldn’t be the successful tournament and destination it is today. We asked a few of the tournament’s supporters to tell us why they look forward to the Walmart NW Arkansas Championship presented by P&G each year. Here is what they had to say . . .

“Between the sponsors and tournament owners—Octagon, we have a shared commitment to making Northwest Arkansas a great place to live and work. We decided early on we wanted to make this one of the signature events in Northwest Arkansas to help put a spotlight on our community. We agreed to make our event much more than just the golf tournament and also showcase the things that make [this area] a great place to live and work like community giving, diversity and empowering women, nature and our environment, and of course the incredible friendliness and hospitality of our people. To date, clearly our biggest impact on the community is through charitable giving which now has already exceeded $1,000,000! Going forward, we will build on that [as a] ‘must-see’ attraction and destination in the region.”

- Jeff Schomburger, P&G LPGA professional Morgan Pressel and Jeff Schomburger at the Pairings Party

“My favorite part of the tournament is following the players. If you stop and think about it, golf is their profession. Like any professional, they are incredibly focused and driven to do their best and be their best. I have the benefit of closing my office door if I’m having a challenging day. We get to watch how they persevere after not doing well on a hole or a miss-hit, and celebrate for them when they sink a birdie putt. Then, when their rounds are over they still have enough energy to be generously approachable with their fans, especially the kids. Many of the fans drive in from surrounding areas to watch them play, but they also make time to see what we have to offer around town. The players get around too and even have their favorite places to shop, like Walmart.”

-Gisel Ruiz, Walmart Gisel Ruiz and Yani Tseng at 2012 Media Day


TRÉS CHIC

“The connection the community and the players have [is what makes the tournament special]. I think there is a genuine affection between the players and the fans. Many of the players say this is their favorite tour stop, hands down. We are fortunate to consistently attract the top golfers from the tour year after year. The field is always one of the best on tour. Some of the reasons: The friendly people here, a challenging but fair golf course, one of the tour’s largest purses, and the great amenities in the area—the shops, restaurants, and local attractions. I think hosting this event adds to the quality of life and helps to make Northwest Arkansas an attractive location for local businesses like Walmart, as well as for national companies with a large presence here. It’s also great to see the way the supplier community rallies around the entire event with a common goal of showcasing Northwest Arkansas and the people who live and work here.”

- Mark Henneberger, Walmart Steve Bratspies, Mark Henneberger, Azahara Munoz, Duncan Mac Naughton and David Tovar at the Pro-Am Tournament

“The friendliness of the people in Northwest Arkansas and the energy that is in the air the week of the tournament truly shows the appreciation our community has to host an event of this magnitude. My favorite part of the tournament is the Pairings Party on Tuesday evening. There is fantastic food, great entertainment, but most importantly the opportunity to visit with the players one-on-one and really get to know them off the course. They are truly special ladies and they know how important the community and the sponsors are to the success of the LPGA.”

- Sarah Semrow, Kimberly-Clark

Sarah Semrow at the Women in Networking Breakfast


“The 17th hole is an exciting place to watch the tournament. The fans have the opportunity to really show their support for what the world’s greatest female golfers are capable of. I have a number of favorite memories, but the first that comes to mind is the first year we had the Malibu Party deck on 17. Watching Stacy Lewis approach the green while the fans called the Hogs, followed by her sinking a 10-foot putt for a birdie. The place went nuts. Ever since that moment, Stacy has been gracious enough to tell those playing with her that it’s going to get a little rowdy on 17! My other favorite is Pantene Beautiful Lengths, where people are encouraged to donate their hair to make wigs for those going through cancer therapy. I’ve been fortunate enough to watch this event grow from 10 people donating their hair in 2007, to this year,where we will have over 200 people give for this important cause.”

- Tim Marrin, P&G Heather and Tim Marrin at Pantene Beautiful Lengths

“The event brings our community together and shows the pride we all have in Northwest Arkansas and the state of Arkansas. It is wonderful to see Walmart as the naming sponsor of a very visible women’s event in our hometown. From sponsor involvement in pre-tournament activities to the involvement of young ‘future players’, many people with varied interest get involved. The tournament is one more quality of life reason that we can be proud to call Northwest Arkansas home.”

-Wayne Callahan, HJ Heinz

Wayne and Diane Callahan at the Pairings Party

“I’ve been fortunate to be a part of a sponsor organization (first at Sara Lee and now with Kimberly-Clark) since the beginning of the NW Arkansas Championship. It has been great to see the evolution of the tournament, especially with the difficult start and a rainshortened event back in 2007 to what is now one of the top LPGA stops on tour. The tournament committee has done a fantastic job of attracting high-quality talent. It is one of the top destinations on tour and the LPGA players frequently comment how much they enjoy this tournament because of the fan engagement.”

TRÉS CHIC Donny Hubbard

Owner of The Independent with daughter, Aly, age 6, and son Lucas, age 2

How would you describe your style? My style could be described as European, elegant and tailored with pops of color. I’m into the details. Finishing touches like pocket squares and crazy socks are very much my thing. What advice do you have for other dads looking to dress well? My advice would be to make sure your clothing fits right. The devil is in the details and nothing looks worse than wearing stuff that doesn’t fit. Has your style changed since becoming a dad? I think my style has changed a little but that’s mostly because it’s my job to keep up with trends in fashion. Even when my kids were babies I didn’t let my clothing affect how I interacted my kids. Clothing is meant to be lived in. A little baby slobber never hurt anything. 49

Dr. Jason Hurt

OB/GYN at Creekside Center for Women with daughter Ava, age 6 (not pictured twin daughters Elanor and Eliza, age 2)

When you aren’t wearing scrubs, what do you like to wear? I really enjoy getting dressed up and wearing bowties. Dressing up is easy with bowties, because you can keep the staples and mix and match the bow ties. Where do you find your bow ties? Beau Ties Ltd, Brits & Turks or Southern Proper. What are your wardrobe staples? Bow ties and I also love tweed blazers. I’ve brought some back from Ireland. The quality is amazing and they are perfect for colder weather. How has your style changed since becoming a dad? I find that I dress more colorfully because of having little girls. 50


What are your favorites places to shop for clothes? I’m mostly a garage sale, thrift store, and estate sale guy these days. The tux I was married in was from the ’20s and made on Fifth Avenue in New York City. It was thicker wool and designed better than anything I could find at a department store these days. I paid $10 for that suit at a flea market. How would you describe your style? I love classic design in men’s clothes from the ’40s or early ’50s. Things were simple and tough back then. Having a coat that you can pass on and your kids can’t wear it out. What is your favorite piece of clothing you own? My Filson Tin Cloth Field jacket.

How has your style changed since becoming a dad? It hasn’t changed at all. But I am definitely more conscious of spit up and the occasional change. What is your favorite piece of clothing you own? My Rick Owens Leather Jacket. What are your wardrobe staples? I own a lot of jeans. My favorite brand is Baldwin Jeans, which are made out of Kansas City. How would you describe your style? My style is little rock and roll, or sartorial with an edge. 53

SOUTHERN STYLE:

Where utility, tradition and fashion meet 54


f you made a list of the ultimate southern fashion accessories, right at the top you’d find sunglass straps. Found around the necks of southern men and women, sunglass straps got their start as a functional wardrobe basic for the farmers, hunters and businessmen who call the South home. What was once a boring marketplace of drab black straps, sunglass straps are now fashion statements meant to be worn, and mix and matched daily depending on your outfit.

Last February, two Arkansas friends set out to refresh this fashion movement through a sunglass strap line called Cotton Snaps. Today, Lance Stokes and Ben Brundick, co-founders of Cotton Snaps, have successfully created the ultimate sunglass accessory and updated a staple of southern wardrobes. Keeping track of your sunglasses has never been so easy or stylish.

55


TRÉS CHIC

Both graduates of the University of Central Arkansas, Lance and Ben started Cotton Snaps in an effort to bring fashion to fit the southern way of life. In addition to Cotton Snaps, the pair are also behind the lifestyle brand, Southern Dignity—a clothing company that creates an array of products from t-shirts, polos, suspenders and of course the iconic bow ties and ties the company is known for. With a deep history in the south, the bow tie has been sported around the necks of southern gentlemen for generations. Found in an array of colors, Southern Dignity bow ties feature the Great Dane logo the brand has become known for—an outline of Lance’s beloved dog, Sam. Bow ties are a must-have accessory for stylish southern men and Southern Dignity is updating this quintessential southern style. Through Cotton Snaps, Lance and Ben have revived a functional element of the everyday outfit for both southern men and women, making them more stylish and able to be worn with any outfit on any occasion. Offering a wide array of fabrics, colors and styles—from plaids to prints, solids, ginghams and stripes—these sunglass straps easily add flair to an ensemble and are refreshing this staple wardrobe piece for generations to come. In just the year since founding both companies, Lance and Ben now offer a variety of products to fit the Southern way of life. From game day fashions, hunting season and everything in between, Southern Dignity and Cotton Snaps are sure to fit every occasion in the southern way of life. Both brands are sold throughout the Southeast United States, and can be found locally at Something Urban, Walker Brothers and The Mustache: Goods & Wears.

TRAVEL

Exploring Arkansas’ Top Five Fishing Holes Did you know? The Natural State offers 600,000 acres of lakes and 9,700 miles of streams and rivers. With those numbers, we’re bound to have some of the best fishing right in our backyard. Armed with our fishing poles and bait, we went on a mission to find the best fishing holes Arkansas has to offer. From catfish, trout, crappie, bass and bream, these rivers and lakes offer it all. Whether you’re hitting the road for a weekend at the lake or hopping in the car for a quick jaunt to the water—here are five spots that will not disappoint. HOOK, LINE, AND SINKER. 81


TRAVEL

1. Bull Shoals Lake Named one of the country’s Top 100 Bass Lakes by Bassmaster Magazine, Bull Shoals offers one of the finest fishing and boating destinations in the nation. In the early spring, walleye and white bass run in the upper reaches of the 45,000-acre lake. Surrounded by a state park, Bull Shoals is as picturesque as they come.

2. White River Framed by scenic limestone bluffs, the upper White River offers an assortment of bass, catfish and sunfish. But it is the part below Bull Shoals Dam that is noteworthy—a premier 100-mile trout stream

renowned for its record rainbow

and brown trout. Fly-fishing is popular on the White River, but flat-bottomed johnboats are a great method of fishing and soaking in the views of the scenery along the river.

3. Lake Ouachita Arkansas’ largest reservoir, the 40,000-acre Lake Ouachita offers fishing for striped and largemouth bass and other sport fish in the backdrop of outstanding scenery. While you’re there, try your hand at scuba diving, pleasure boating, sailing and water skiing—all popular activities on this lake.

82


4. Lake Dardanelle With over 34,000 acres of boating and fishing water, Lake Dardanelle is an extremely accessible lake and a major reservoir on the Arkansas River. Known as the Arkansas River’s best striper pool, Lake Dardanelle also boasts populations of big catfish, native white bass and excellent bream fishing.

5. Lake Chicot Take a trek to southeast Arkansas to visit the state’s largest natural lake right outside Lake Village (about five hours from Fayetteville). In the spring, fishing for crappie, bass and bream is popular on the lake’s upper end. If you’re looking for catfish, Lake Chicot is the perfect spot year-round.

Bonus:

Beaver Lake

Our hometown lake isn’t a bad one for fishing either. The man-made Beaver Lake offers smallmouth bass fishing, largemouth bass fishing and striper bass fishing, as well as copious supplies of crappie, bream, white bass, channel and spoonbill catfish. If you’re looking for a quick day in the sun, Beaver Lake is as close to home as you can get. All photos provided by the Arkansas Department of Parks & Tourism.
