2021 Celebrating Women Leadership

Marybeth Conlon
Luncheon Co-Chair

A community leader and volunteer for more than 15 years, Marybeth was inspired to get involved with Celebrating Women after witnessing several women in her family fight breast cancer, including her godmother, whose battle ended in 2017. She is committed to championing this effort and proud to serve as a 2021 Celebrating Women co‑chair.

Marybeth currently serves the North Texas area through leadership positions with The Crystal Charity Ball, Owners Advisory Council and the Shelton School Auction. Over the years, she has dedicated her time to many philanthropic causes, serving in various roles for the Callier Cares Luncheon benefiting the Callier Center for Communication Disorders, the After-School All-Stars North Texas Rising Stars Luncheon and the Tutu Chic Fashion Show and Luncheon benefiting the Texas Ballet Theater.

Marybeth received her bachelor’s degree and Juris Doctor from Baylor University and is the founder of The Conlon Law Firm, P.C. She has been recognized annually for her professional work since 2012 by Texas Super Lawyers.

Marybeth and her husband of 17 years, Kevin, are the proud parents of two young children, Luke and Quinn.

Elizabeth Gambrell
Luncheon Co-Chair

We are honored to have Elizabeth serve as co-chair of the 2021 Celebrating Women luncheon. The fight against breast cancer became deeply personal to her when she lost her aunt to the disease, and she is committed to helping advance breast cancer treatment and care for women in North Texas.

Elizabeth is a leader and advocate for numerous philanthropic causes in our community and currently serves as board chair for Community Partners of Dallas and president of The Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary. Additionally, she lends her time and talents to the Dallas Symphony Orchestra League Presentation Ball, Crystal Charity Ball and Cattle Baron’s Ball. Elizabeth has also chaired the Junior League of Dallas Ball and the Women of Distinction Luncheon for the Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas.

Elizabeth earned her bachelor’s degree and Juris Doctor from The University of Texas at Austin. She and her husband, Eric, are the proud parents of three children: Eleanor and Luke, who both attend her alma mater, and Sarah Rose, a senior at Highland Park High School. In their free time, the family enjoys vacationing in Northern Michigan.
