“Participating Members had fun voting on their favorite establishments in the Dallas area,” said Danica Maguire, executive director of Ventana by Buckner. “Many Ventana Members have strong roots in the Dallas-area as frequent patrons of the arts and diners at the some of the city’s best restaurants. The creation of Dallas Senior Select was an opportunity for us to honor local businesses that continue to hold a special place in Members’ hearts.”

Winning businesses and organizations were told of their selection earlier this week. Each will receive an official Dallas Seniors Select certificate thanking them for their service of seniors.

Results were obtained in July 2022 via a survey provided to 225 Ventana by Buckner residents in independent living. Each category included four or more choices and the option to write-in a selection.
