In honor of the many achievements Southlake and its residents fulfilled throughout 2013, we felt it was an opportune year to commemorate organizations, individuals and everyone in between for all of their stellar moments last year. 

On Friday, Jan. 17, Southlake Style hosted its Best Of 2013 event, featuring local celebrities, family and friends. Everyone showed up dressed to the nines at the Hilton Southlake Town Square, where flash photography was extremely encouraged and laughter filled the room. 

Yummy drinks and scrumptious appetizers filled everyone’s plates and glasses thanks to Grapevine Craft Brewery, TX Blended Whiskey, the Hilton and First Financial Bank.

Guests also enjoyed song covers from the young, bold and talented musicians of The Robotix — serenading us with classics such as “Time of Your Life” by Green Day and “Imagine” by John Lennon.

The guest list featured local celebrities that graced our magazine covers throughout the year, including Fox 4 weatherman Dan Henry, American Girl’s Sidney Fullmer and Grapevine Craft Brewery founder Gary Humble.

However, the rising star of the night was Southlake Style’s Community Impact Award winner, Martin Schelling

If there’s one thing Martin knows, it’s safety, which can be seen from the many organizations and units he’s spearheaded to keep our beautiful city of Southlake secure.

As Mayor John Terrell and Crime Control and Prevent District member Bob Mundlin took to the stage to speak on behalf of Martin and his achievements, attendees immediately noticed the utmost respect the city and its members hold for Martin and his continued success.

Although Martin kept his acceptance speech brief, he made it a point to acknowledge how grateful he was for the outpour of support and was extremely proud to be called one of Southlake’s own.

As the event’s success began to wind down, guests were presented with swag bags before exiting the building. The bags featured various goodies from local retailers, restaurants and businesses, including: the Hair Bar, Truluck’s, GRACE, Roxann Taylor & Associate Realtors, Whole Earth Provision and Sedo Cryo.

As we put 2013 up on the shelves and begin our descent into the New Year, one thing’s for certain: Best Of 2013 was one for the books.
