Christopher & Stacie Martin Will Be the Honorary Chairs for This Year’s Accessible Luxury
Christopher and Stacie Martin will be the honorary chairs for this year’s Accessible Luxury. Scottish Rite Hospital is thrilled to have this wonderful couple be a part of the event.
Many have seen Christopher Martin’s gorgeous paintings. In addition to his expert artistic skill, Christopher is a generous philanthropist. He has worked with our hospital patients for more than 15 years to create paintings that are auctioned off at Treasure Street, the hospital’s signature event. This selfless donation of his time and talents has raised more than $160,000 for Scottish Rite Hospital. A self-taught artist whose career spans nearly 25 years, Christopher’s works can be found in private and corporate collections in the U.S. and abroad.
Stacie Martin was one of the founders of Accessible Luxury, along with Harriet Kelly and Model Citizen, an organization focused on the fashion industry coordinating efforts to help worthy causes.
“It is gratifying to see the wonderful partners we enlisted for the first Accessible Luxury event 8 years ago; Campbell-Wagner Runway, Beretta Gallery and the fabulous Salon Pompeo that continue to be loyally committed to helping the kids of Scottish Rite Hospital. It’s phenomenal to see the new community partners stepping up to sponsor what has become a highly anticipated event. Zac and Emily-Ray Porter, and Cullen Potts and Harriet Kelly’s amazing team have done an exquisite job with this year’s Accessible Luxury – it is full of luxurious surprises.”
Chris and Stacie are avid supporters of the hospital and its work – in the last six years two family members have received life-changing care from Scottish Rite Hospital.
Both Chris and Stacie find the hospital to be a wonderful example of greatness in a pediatric hospital. Christopher says, “It is a fine addition to the city of Dallas, and we are honored to be involved in any way in aiding Scottish Rite’s success.”
